Green Lantern October 2018 Solicitations

DC Comics has released their solicitations for books shipping in October of 2018.  Of note this month is the conclusion of the Green Lanterns title, which ceases publication with issue 57 and makes way for the upcoming Grant Morrison / Liam Sharp relaunch.  Dan Jurgens looks to end his short run on the book with a Cyborg Superman plot and teases similarities to “Emerald Twilight” with a showdown between Hank Henshaw and Hal Jordan.  The Green Lantern Corps also shows up in Supergirl again this month.  DC is adding foil enhancements to all of their books this month, leading to some interesting graphic design choices.

THE ROAD TO “DROWNED EARTH”! Superman and Batman can’t agree on how to put back the moon—you know, the one that went missing in issue #1. On the other hand, Wonder Woman and Aquaman have faith in each other, working together on a new addition to the Hall of Justice. Martian Manhunter takes Hawkgirl under his wing to test out the limits of her recently broken wing, and Flash and Green Lantern get up to some hijinks in the Hall’s cafeteria.

Who are those guys? Some very big fish—and you know what big fish do? Eat smaller fish like Aquaman and his Justice League buddies!

Set against the turbulent backdrop of the early 1970s, Green Lantern and Huckleberry Hound join forces to take a stand on the issues of that era. Returning from recent duty in Vietnam, veteran Marine John Stewart—now a member of the Green Lantern Corps—contemplates what, if anything, he should do about the issues tearing his country apart. Meanwhile, Huckleberry’s comments against the Vietnam war have left him a celebrity outcast, and a visit back home to Mississippi puts him face to face with the Civil Rights Movement. What can one man—and one hound—do? Plus, part two of a Secret Squirrel backup story written by J.M. DeMatteis.
