Exclusive: GREEN LANTERN Group July 2013 Solicits

Find out what's happening in July. Be warned, there may be some minor spoilers.

June brings big changes to the GREEN LANTERN family of books. Besides Geoff Johns ending his nine year run, the entire line of books is pretty much seeing new creative changes. Change can be good and keeps everyone on their toes.

As the current GL books are going through the Wrath of the First Lantern story, there's been some questions as to what happens next. If you read GREEN LANTERN #19, you know big things just happened. We've seen the June solicits already but the July ones shed more light on what's happening. As with all solicits, there may be some spoilers to the current issues.

GREEN LANTERN #22

Larfleeze arrives on Oa to find the Corps at their most desperate, while Hal is forced to throw new Green Lantern recruits into a battle they might not win! And don’t miss the birth of a brand new threat.

This issue is also offered as a combo pack edition with a redemption code for a digital download of this issue.

Dang..looks like another GL Family title to get with Larfleeze it looks like. Venditti at the helm of Lantern and Corps is AWESOME. Jordan with New Guardians is GREAT! Not sure about the guy at helm of Red Lanterns, though that cover kinda angers me. And Larfleeze is just amazing I tell you, amazing!

"Witness the beginnings of the next major Green Lantern villain in this issue! Something terrible has emerged from the Anomaly at the edge of the universe"

.... a big leech thing?? Yeah, I'm disappointed by the idea of a big tentacled face eating leech thing being the center of the Lantern universe.

Guy's a Red Lantern now ?!?!

Yeah, before Fialkov left there was a story in place where Guy becomes a red lantern. Looks like that story is continuing. I don't really see an issue with it in all honesty. People always complain that there are "to many earth lanterns" so this is a way of addressing while still keeping the character around. Kyle is a white lantern and Guy is a red (which came up from Johns run as you know during blackest night). Not really sure what this means for ol' Atrocitus

Look at who Guy is on top of, also in the latest RL issue Atrocitus orders the Corps to kill him.

Where did you get this image?? Cool!!

I'm probably in the minority here, but I like Guy Gardner.

Larfleeze in his own book is freaking Amazing.

I wasn't aware Larfleeze was getting his own title, i just wet my pants with glee!

GL for Hal, GLC for John, GL:NG for Kyle, and RL for Guy? Now we're talking, DC...this is how you give all four Earth Lanterns their due and please each Lantern's fan base. And Larfleeze is a win for everyone. If only it had a Saint Walker back-up to it.....then all would truly be well.

@spiderbuck: I found it at comic book movie, solicitations for GL #21, GLC#21, and Red Lantern #21

Agreed, I like Saint Walker too. He reminds me of a Shaolin Monk.

why are all the Earth Green Lanterns dissing the Corps? Kyle is a Yellow Lantern and Guy is a Red Lantern? DAFUQ?

Kyle is a white lantern. the yellow is just light shining on his costume.

@avenging_x_bolt: I realise that now , thanks. Also I just saw the White Lantern sign on his costume.

I'm so glad John is taking center stage now.
