April 2014 Green Lantern Solicitations

There are a lot of books with Green Lantern in them this month

DC Comics has released their April 2014 comics solicitations which includes a number of Green Lantern appearances in comics which don’t take place in regular continuity, such as Smallville, Injustice and Scribblenauts.  The mystery of what Kyle Rayner saw on the other side of the Source Wall during Lights Out will start coming into play in this month’s Green Lantern: New Guardians annual, and as usual it doesn’t look good for the Green Lanterns.  April marks the debut of the new ongoing Sinestro title as well as the final issue of Justice League of America.  Contrary to rumor this month doesn’t prove to be the last for the Larfleeze series….and this month’s themed variant covers are inspired by MAD magazine.
