Every once in a while, for various reasons, a completed cover doesn't make it to publisher's monthly solicits. Sometimes they contain spoilers or sometimes production tweaks are being made. JUSTICE LEAGUE #26 was an issue that did not show the final cover. DC has given us a first look at what we can expect on December 24.
JUSTICE LEAGUE #26
A FOREVER EVIL tie-in! Why has the Crime Syndicate really come to our Earth? What are their darkest secrets? And how will their actions fundamentally change the Justice League as we know it? Meanwhile, Grid controls the world’s power and communications, but what does he truly want from the Syndicate? Plus, a member of the League struggling to survive plots a path of return...and revenge.

Will this scene actually be in the comic? When will Hal Jordan come back to Earth to help his former teammates? And what about Sinestro? Is he coming back? He does appear to have a white streak in his hair like he did at the end of GREEN LANTERN #20 but maybe it's somehow the Earth 3 version?
Here's the black-and-white variant along with the combo-pack version.
