The Beast That Ate A Thousand Power Rings

The events of “War of the Green Lanterns” has had more consequences than the Green Lantern Corps ever fathomed. As a result of the conflict, an ancient evil in the farthest reaches of the universe has broken free, consuming countless Green Lanterns in its wake, feeding on the vast energy of their power rings. To halt its path of raw destruction, the Guardians send an elite crew led by Guy Gardner to find it and halt it — permanently. Can Guy and his team stop this beast before it reaches Oa?

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.

WAR OF THE GREEN LANTERNS, Part 3: Guy Gardner vs. Hal Jordan

The War of the Green Lanterns continues in its third installment, “Breaking Bad,” when the Corps become brainwashed by someone controlling them through their rings. In turn, Guy Gardner turns to Hal Jordan, the only other Lantern not affected by the powers that be that he can reach. But when a distress call turns into a civil brawl, Guy and Hal must first face off against one another before they can save the rest of their team.

The End and The Beginning

There are only three issues left of the bestselling BRIGHTEST DAY series. Issue 22 is cryptically titled “The End and The Beginning” and it’s all about Firestorm’s struggle to be the best hero that he can be.

I don’t want to give anything away or spoil the story, so I’ll just say that the issue has been aptly titled and leave it at that.

Written by Geoff Johns and Peter J. Tomasi and with art by Scott Clark, Ivan Reis, and Joe Prado, BRIGHTEST DAY #22, is on sale in stores today.
