Green Lantern June 2016 Solicitations

DC Comics Rebirth starts in June and their creative decisions have fans buzzing in both positive and negative ways.  Regardless of anyone’s opinion the immediate future of the DC universe starts here!  It all kicks off at the end of May with DC Universe: Rebirth #1 and while most books will be the launches of new titles, several others will be seeing their final issues hitting the stands – including the finale to Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion, Justice League and JLA.

Updated – A day later DC Comics has re-solicited Justice League #52 which no longer focuses on Jessica Cruz but instead on Batman’s new Robin, Dick Grayson!?
