August 2018 Green Lantern Solicitations

DC Comics has released their August 2018 comics solicitations and I can’t recall a time when there has been so much anticipation surrounding the future of the Green Lantern franchise.  There have been all sorts of changes and rumors circulating in recent weeks and today fans get the first inkling of what’s to come as the Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps title is cancelled at issue fifty.  Hal Jordan shifts over the Green Lanterns title under the guidance of Dan Jurgens, who is set to transition the franchise towards……

HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #50
written by ROBERT VENDITTI
art and cover by RAFA SANDOVAL and JORDI TARRAGONA
variant cover by TYLER KIRKHAM
This. Is. It! It’s an extra-sized anniversary celebration, and one of the biggest battles the Green Lantern Corps has ever fought to mark the occasion. John Stewart issues a dramatic order: no lethal force! The Green Lanterns need to prove they can keep law and order in the universe without killing. Elsewhere, Hal Jordan faces down Tomar-Tu, and looks to use the Darkstars’ armor as a weapon against them—with some psychic help from Hector Hammond (who probably shouldn’t be trusted).
