Comic Book Resources announced today that BOOM! Studios is collaborating with DC Comics to publish a six issue crossover event series pairing Green Lantern with one of their licensed properties, The Planet of the Apes. Little is known about the series at this point other than that the premiere issue will be available in February of 2017. Creative teams and other information is expected to be revealed when BOOM! Studios releases their solicitation information some time after the New York Comic Con.
This is the second crossover announcement in recent months with the sequel to the Star Trek/Green Lantern: Spectrum War scheduled to start this Christmas. While these crossovers tend to be hit or miss it’s encouraging to see the Green Lantern mythology promoted with other pop culture fandoms given the upcoming Green Lantern Corps films is only a few years away.
