Yesterday, we told you that Earthborn Green Lanterns Hal, Guy, John, and Kyle came up with a shocking and dangerous strategy for battle—but standing in their way is Kilowog, Salaak and all their comrades. As the war heats up in part five of the War of the Green Lanterns, the consequences of their decision begin to come to fruition. Are they prepared to hurt their friends in order to save the Corps?
When I was recently handed the editorial reins to GREEN LANTERN, GREEN LANTERN CORPS and GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD WARRIORS, it felt admittedly daunting. I was coming on board just as all three titles raced into the massive crossover story, “War of the Green Lanterns.” It was an intimidating prospect.
We have some nice art to help you get through the midweek slump. First up, the cover to THE FLASH #10 by the incredible Francis Manapul followed by the variant of GREEN LANTERN CORPS #58 by Tyler Kirkham. Next up are both JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #22 covers. The standard is by Dustin Nguyen and the variant by Kevin Maguire.

For R.E.B.E.L.S. #23, writer Tony Bedard and artists Claude St. Aubin and Scott Hanna bring in a special guest star: none other than Green Lantern John Stewart! In the issue, Adam Strange plays peacemaker between Vril Dox's band of rebellious space cops and the entire Green Lantern Corps, and negotiations aren't going well at all. Let's hope Lobo can stay on his best behavior... but I wouldn't bet any of own money on that! R.E.B.E.L.S. #23 hits stands today. [gallery link="file"]
