May 2014 Green Lantern Solicitations

The war with the Durlans and the Khunds hits the boiling point

DC Comics has released their solicitations for the comics being published in April 2014, plus some collectibles which will be released in August, notably the cool Justice League chess set.  May’s variant cover theme plays off of the success of the Batman ’66 comic.

This month sees the Durlan conflict erupt and the promised return of a long lost member of the Corps.
