Actually it was just yesterday that I flew back from San Diego, but thanks to the magic of comics you’re reading this weeks from when I write it. I’m jealous because when you read this it’s almost football season and you’ve seen a certain action movie that hasn’t come out yet as I’m writing this.

But what’s Sinestro up to? And what special mission does the White Power Battery send Hal Jordan on that he won’t be so happy to complete? GREEN LANTERN #54 hits 5/26. [gallery link="file"]
We’ve now seen them but what are the Entities that power "The New Guardians"? Does this variant cover hold any answers, courtesy of artist Alex Garner, who did the ACTION COMICS variant we posted not long ago. Wait, you want more info? No problem. We visited with GREEN LANTERN editor Eddie Berganza for the scoop. Take it away, Eddie:
Writer Geoff Johns and artist Doug Mahnke present the next exciting chapter of the Green Lantern mythos right here, with the first part of "New Guardians." Forced to work together during the deadly rise of the Black Lanterns, Hal Jordan, Sinestro, Carol Ferris, Saint Walker, Atrocitus, Indigo-1 and Larfleeze must agree to disagree if their next mission is to succeed. But when a familiar and strange face returns, will everything be put into question again? My guess? Seems like it. GREEN LANTERN #53 hits tomorrow.
