May 2019 Green Lantern Comics Solicitations

DC Comics have released their comics solicitations for books releasing in May of 2019.  With this month’s seventh issue of the Grant Morrison helmed The Green Lantern series the writer seems to be treading some familiar territory with Hal being trapped inside his power ring, something reminiscent of Robert Venditti’s “Emerald Space” or 2001’s “Willworld” graphic novel.  May also sees the launch of the DCeased six issue limited series which shows Hal Jordan popping up in the first issue.
