The title is pretty ominous on its own: ADVENTURE COMICS STARRING BLACK LANTERN SUPERBOY. But what more can we reveal about the issue, which is written by Tony Bedard, with art by Travis Moore? Well, we're not saying a ton, but ADVENTURE COMICS editor Brian Cunningham has a few choice words to share. Take it away, Brian:

But Starro has a plan up his sleeve that even a super-genius like Dox won't see coming. Brought to you by writer Tony Bedard and artist Claude St. Aubin, R.E.B.E.L.S. #9 hits today.
Tying into his recent debut in R.E.B.E.L.S., the origin of the real Starro the Conqueror is revealed! Why have we never seen this cosmic barbarian before? And how did he amass his horde of super-soldiers? The stellar answers are all in here from R.E.B.E.L.S. writer Tony Bedard and a variety of top artists (Kalman Andrasofszky, Derec Donovan, Joe Prado and Karl Moline) for each intense chapter!
