DC Comics has released their solicitations for comics being published in May of 2021. Included is the previously announced John Stewart 50th Anniversary hardcover. The official solicitation includes Green Lantern: Mosaic #18 however DC recently indicated that this was being replaced with Justice League Vol. 4 #40.
