Green Lantern September 2018 Comics Solicitations

DC Comics has released their September 2018 comics solicitations which contains a few surprises.  First of all we see the return of Cyborg Superman to the pages of a Green Lantern comic book, but it appears that Jessica Cruz isn’t appearing in the Green Lanterns title at all this month.  The other surprise is that the Green Lantern Corps takes a major role in the Supergirl series.  But perhaps the biggest surprise is that there is no news regarding the future of the Green Lantern books or that Grant Morrison announcement.

The Cyborg Superman, Hank Henshaw, found a way to override the Green Lanterns’ Power Rings, and he’s using that ability to gaslight Simon Baz in part five of the “Evil’s Might” storyline. Communicating with Baz through his ring, Henshaw convinces Simon to trespass in Superman’s Fortress of Solitude, where Henshaw will have access to all the cosmic weaponry that would make him unstoppable. Can Simon throw off the mental shackles ensnaring him? Or will he unwittingly help Hank Henshaw become an omega-level threat once again?

Then, Hank Henshaw, the Ravagers and Eon battle the Green Lantern Corps on Mogo for the fate of the universe! (In other words, it’s Tuesday.)

variant cover by TERRY DODSON and RACHEL DODSON
Space may very well be the final frontier for the Odyssey team! It’s bad enough when the very environment of space wants to kill you, but when Vril Dox shows up and attacks with an army of Brainiac robots, what chance does the Odyssey team have? Of course, Vril’s just doing this to save the Coluan refugees aboard the ship, right? He wouldn’t have some ulterior motive, would he? And can the team really trust that Darkseid—who’s also aboard their ship—won’t try to destroy the universe? Cyborg, Starfire, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz and Azrael are on it!

Welcome to Sanctuary, an ultra-secret hospital for superheroes who’ve been traumatized by crime-fighting and cosmic combat. But something goes inexplicably wrong when many patients wind up dead, with two well-known operators as the prime suspects: Harley Quinn and Booster Gold! It’s up to the DC Trinity of Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman to investigate—but can they get the job done in the face of overwhelming opposition?
