Green Lantern March 2017 Solicitations

Both DC Comics and BOOM! Studios released a number of solicitations today including all the Green Lantern books that both publishers have scheduled to be released in March.  Along with the not yet solicited third issue of the Star Trek crossover from IDW Publishing you could say that March is “Mashup Month” for Green Lantern between the aforementioned Trek book, the Planet of the Apes book, the Green Lantern/Space Ghost crossover and John Stewart’s appearance in the Justice League/Power Rangers series.  Here are all the books announced today.
