Welcome to week nine of What's New in The New 52 – where you, the fans, get a sneak peek at the stuff that crosses our desks. This little feature is a way to keep you all in the loop about what's new, different and exciting in The New 52 – whether it's a character design, cover, splash page or panel.
A few weeks ago, the creative teams behind the Green Lantern titles all metaphorically retired from the Corps with the release of their respective series’ 20th issue (that said, once a Lantern, always a Lantern).
However, like the rings of the Corps themselves, worthy successors have been chosen to carry on the tradition set before them and to guide the Green Lantern Universe to new and exciting heights filled with crazy adventure, dangerous villains, and characters both old and new.
Next month, get ready to welcome the New Guardians.
Beginning with issue #21, GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS will come to you from writer Justin Jordan and artist Brad Walker. And today, we’re giving you a first look at this fan-favorite series’ new direction by showing you some of Walker’s stunning artwork!
So where will GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS pick up following the shattering events of “Wrath of The First Lantern”?
