Ahead of this Friday’s complete solicitations for DC Comics in November, we have learned Grant Morrison is taking on another Green Lantern series as the Blackstars get a three-issue mini-series.
Joining Morrison is Xermanico on art. The mini-series follows the events of The Green Lantern #12 from Morrison and Liam Sharp that arrives on October 2, 2019.
Here is how DC is describing the series:
Who are the Blackstars? What are they? Answers will be revealed as the unstoppable Blackstars set their sights on the demons of Ysmault, Mongul…and a tiny, backwater planet called Earth in Green Lantern: Blackstars #1. Following the catastrophic events of The Green Lantern #12, no Green Lanterns can be found patrolling their space sectors…not a single power ring lights the darkness! What happens in the finale of Morrison and Sharp’s incredible year-long run is shrouded in mystery, but the Green Lantern Corps is no more! Scratch that—they never existed in the first place. What has Hal Jordan done?
“Oa is the skeleton-paved haunt of vengeful demons,” said Morrison in a statement from DC, “And the Blackstars—a sinister cult of universal peace and harmony, involving surrender to the will of the insidious and/or possibly illuminated Controller Mu—are in the process of subjugating the universe to their creed.
Jordan’s one of the Blackstars’ primary operatives,” continued Morrison. “He’s central, although the Cosmic Vampire Countess Belzebeth vies with him for control of the narrative in Blackstars. Hal Jordan is the kind of man who will excel in any situation, so naturally he’s an elite Blackstar in this altered-continuity.”
Green Lantern: Blackstars #1 is set to arrive on November 6, 2019.
