Hal Jordan has a history of flirting with darkness, going so far as to destroy the Guardians of the Universe and ignite a Crisis in Time in the past. He’s since been redeemed, but after the events of last month’s THE GREEN LANTERN #4 and tomorrow’s THE GREEN LANTERN #5, one has to wonder…has he fallen back into his old ways? Benched and under investigation for his execution of the evil Volgar Zo, Jordan has escaped to rendezvous with Countess Belzebeth of Vorr, the vampiric leader of the ruthless Blackstars. The reason? To join the lethal squadron of peacekeepers himself.
To do that, he’ll have to undertake an initiation unlike any other—a frightening gauntlet under the cover of darkness on a planet populated by interstellar vampires. But success doesn’t necessarily mean life. As Countess Belzebeth says, “There can be only one outcome…Hal Jordan must die to live.”
In this exclusive first look at issue #5, Jordan learns what he must do to achieve the mantle of Blackstar and embarks on a perilous test that will challenge his will and shake his very sanity to its core.
THE GREEN LANTERN #5 by Grant Morrison, Liam Sharp and Steve Oliff is in stores Wednesday.
