DC’s solicitation strategy has been odd in the past two months in the wake of the departure of Adam Phillips who routinely provided the solicitations in a timely manner. Rumor has it that the full solicitations will be revealed tomorrow, but for today we have word that there will be a number of annuals released in August, including a Green Lantern annual featuring an expansion on the “The Taking of Sector 0123” story from Future State: Green Lantern #1.
If you’ll recall, that story ended with Jessica Cruz facing the choice of whether or not to accept a Sinestro Corps ring. The annual continues the plot of that story and features the same creative team, writer Ryan Cady and artist Sami Basri. Bernard Chang provides the annual’s cover, with a variant cardstock cover by David Nakayama. Here’s DC’s description of the story:
“Once an agoraphobic scared to even leave her room, Jessica Cruz overcame her fear to become a Green Lantern and face the darkest and deadliest threats in the universe.
“But now, Jessica’s gone from overcoming fear to using it as a weapon. When Yellow Lanterns attacked the Green Lantern Sector House she took refuge in when the Central Power Battery was destroyed, Jessica turned the tables on them, giving them something to be afraid of, as she beat them one by one. But now that she’s been offered a place in the Sinestro Corps, will she accept?”
The cover price will be $5.99 and no specific release date has been announced.
