"'Green Lantern' 1 picks up a few months later in a very different space than we are now," said Geoff Johns, CCO of DC Entertainment and writer of GREEN LANTERN #1 in an exclusive interview with THE ASSOCIATED PRESS. "When you see the cover you'll know exactly what I'm talking about."
GREEN LANTERN #1
Geoff Johns has been charting the adventures of Hal Jordan and the GREEN LANTERN Corps since GREEN LANTERN: Rebirth, collaborating with such major artists as Ethan Van Sciver, Darwyn Cooke, Prentis Rollins, Marlo Alquiza and Mick Gray.
This fall, Johns reunites with artists Doug Mahnke and Christian Alamy, as the series begins anew with GREEN LANTERN #1 with cover by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. Together they will continue to thrill readers and expand the Green Lantern mythos.
Change is coming. But set aside your fear. It’ll be worth the wait.
Additional titles include:
GREEN LANTERN CORPS #1
When deadly conflicts emerge across the universe, it’s up to Guy Gardner, John Stewart and an elite Green Lantern strike force to keep the peace.
GREEN LANTERN CORPS #1 will be written by Peter J. Tomasi with art by Fernando Pasarin and Scott Hanna. The cover to #1 is by Doug Mahnke and Christian Alamy.
GREEN LANTERN: THE NEW GUARDIANS #1
Who are The New Guardians?
The power of Rage, Avarice, Fear, Will, Hope, Compassion and Love combine to be the most powerful (and colorful) team in the corps under the leadership of Kyle Rayner. Beware their power . . . and their volatility!
GREEN LANTERN: THE NEW GUARDIANS #1 will be written by Tony Bedard and illustrated with cover by Tyler Kirkham and Batt.
RED LANTERNS #1
Going solo. Atrocitus and his Red Lantern Corps return in their own series, battling against injustice in the most bloody ways imaginable. This Lantern Corps takes no prisoners, they are judge, jury and executioners!
RED LANTERNS #1 will be written by Peter Milligan with art and cover by Ed Benes and Rob Hunter.
This month THE WAR OF THE GREEN LANTERNS heats up. Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, John Stewart and Kyle Rayner fight on against their fellow Lanterns and the carnage escalates to savage heights.

Over the course of the past week, we’ve been shedding extra spotlight on several artists here on THE SOURCE. We’ve been in conversation with these artists, their creative teams and their editors to provide you with exclusive sneak peeks of the incredible work that goes into creating the art you see in our books week after week.
Some of the people we talked to included Art Baltazar and Franco, who explained the art of cartooning, Nicola Scott and Doug Hazelwood, who walked us through their collaborative process on TEEN TITANS, and Scott Snyder and Jock, who shared with us how they work together to turn a script page into final art.
Today marks the final post of this artist spotlight series. We reached out to editors Brian Cunningham and Darren Shan to talk about GREEN LANTERN artist Doug Mahnke. Take it away, guys:
For the past 16 years, artist Doug Mahnke has made DC Comics his home, and we couldn’t be happier!
From MAJOR BUMMER to SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL to JLA, Doug has continued to grow and evolve as one of the business’ top talents. What’s more impressive is that Doug can draw an issue every four weeks, the mark of a true professional that has mastered his craft.
Nowadays, Doug plies his talents on GREEN LANTERN, one of our top sellers, issue #65 of which is on sale right now.
Check out his pencils here for GREEN LANTERN #65 page 1, followed by Christian Alamy’s inks and Randy Mayor’s colors. The page 1 pencils show a work-in-progress pencil rough that Doug polished off in his usual tight style.
Pretty cool, right? Take a peek at some more GL #65 pencils-to-colors below.
Be sure to read the entire GREEN LANTERN #65 to ogle more of Doug’s incredible art.
Last we saw Hal Jordan and Guy Gardner, they made the unprecedented decision to remove their rings in the midst of battle. In part four of the epic War of Green Lanterns, the duo reunite with John Stewart and Kyle Rayner to stop the evil forces consuming their fellow Corps members. Their strategy will not only put their lives at stake, but will also go down as one of the riskiest acts committed in the Corps’ history.
GREEN LANTERN #65 is written by Geoff Johns and features art by Doug Mahnke, Keith Champagne, Christian Alamy, Mark Irwin, Mick Gray and Tom Nguyen. In stores this Wednesday.
