Fans at the San Diego Comic-Con were told that more Lantern rings would be on the way, and if Bleeding Cool has the news right, then you might be able to get your hands on all of ’em if you and your local comic shop are willing to spend some money.

So for every 25 copies of Doom Patrol #4, Booster Gold #26, R.E.B.E.L.S. #10, Outsiders ‘24 and  your retailer orders, they can order a bag of fifty Sinestro rings, Agent Orange rings, Indigo Tribe rings and Star Sapphire rings respectively.

And for every 50 copies of Justice League of America#39, Blackest Night #5 and Adventure Comics #4 sees you with a bag of fifty Red Lantern rings, Green Lantern rings and Blue Lantern rings, also respectively.

Each ring will ship every two weeks, Yellow on November 4th, Orange on November 18th, Red on December 2nd, Green on December 16th, Blue on December 30th (well, December 23rd now, I guess, thanks to Comic Book-Free Day), Indigo on January 13th and Violet on January 27th.

Rich Johnson has a good point about this promotion over the Black Ring event earlier this year in that these issues don’t have high sell rates, which would mean retailers would have to purchase more, just to qualify for the ring order – something they may not be willing to do if the issues don’t sell.

Easy solution?  Buy the book, get the ring. Problem solved.  DC numbers soar through the roof as Green Lantern fans buy books to get the rings, shop owners get more people into the store buying books, so their bottom line rises as well, and the recycling companies get a boost in business, as Green Lantern fans ditch the book they just bought in favor of a piece of non-biodegradeable plastic.

    My retailer echoed the same thing. He said the DC minimums were too high. I wonder how many retailers sells 25 copies of Doom Patrol.

    I already pick up most of those books anyways. I guess that I’d be willing to spend the additional few bucks on Doom Patrol and Outsiders if it means that I can get a complete set of the rings.

    I’m sure that DC is counting on readers like me to have the exact same reaction.

    Oh, I’ll totally drop money on those books just for some rings. I’m tempted to buy the $200 statue stand when it comes out too.

    Besides, Booster and Blackest night are already on my pull list.

    Shouldn’t the reflections be reversed?
