With the Reach about to enter the picture, things aren't looking too good for the Blue Lantern Corps.

The first 'mission' for the New Guardians is over. Everyone managed to survive having to work together and now we're left wondering what will happen next. The big thing that happened involved some pretty serious developments for Arkillo. We'll have to keep an eye on him to see how that goes. The main focus for issue #9 seems to be on the Reach. Last issue mentioned the "Fall of the Blue Lanterns" so we'll have to hope the New Guardians can put aside their differences once again in order to assist the Blue Lanterns, should they actually need the help.

With issue #9 in stores on Wednesday, May 23, DC Comics has given us an exclusive preview for the issue.

ODYM, homeworld of the BLUE LANTERNS, is under attack by the alien conquerors known as THE REACH! The combined power of the different Lantern Corps might not be enough to defeat The Reach! To make matters worse, they may have been betrayed by one of their own!

Continued from BLUE BEETLE #9.

I'm surprised there's that many blue lanterns

I Love how they have expanded the Corps

Yay more blue lantern scan time.

I love how each individual corps, tribe, Star Sapphires, and Larfleeze have there own side stories. Makes the difficulty of a team seem real, and possibly better then just the differences between emotions. I do wish the Red lanterns book was more integrated to make Bleez's story more easily understood. In Arkillo's storyline, even though the destruction of the Yellow Lanterns took place in another book, the integration of this plot line explains universal happenings better. All around great book!

No lantern or their corps can get a break

I wonder though, back in Rage of the Red Lanterns it was shown that the new recruit has to converse with Ganthet and Sayd before joining the corps... so how are so many part of the Blue Lantern corps given the absence of the two Guardians?

When did the blue lantern corps gain new members?

Always have loved the blues, and this looks awesome!

I love this book so much. I'm a huge fan of the GL series with Hal and SInestro, but something about the team-up aspect of all the Corps here just draws me in and doesn't let go. Love coming back to this every month!

Currently the best Lantern title, IMO.

Posted by BlueLanternBeast

I want to know who all of these new blue lanterns are. Looks awesome!

Posted by htb106

this looks like it's going to be excellent!

Can't the reach go bother some other corp?

Posted by Skaddix

So Yellow Down, Indigo Down, Green about to be replaced, Red Poisoned, and Blue about to be crushed? Who is next? Honestly, Orange was never a Corps in the first place so that leaves Violet as the last Corps standing.

I like the Blue Lantern Corps but i was hoping Kyle would become a Blue Lantern or start weilding the Blue and Green rings at the same time continuously rather then one or two issues like Guy did with rings and Hal did. It makes sense to have both
