This November, Grant Morrison rewrites reality with ‘Green Lantern: Blackstars’

Ahead of DC Comics’ November solicitations see what Grant Morrison is up to on new Green Lantern series.

This October The Green Lantern #12 will be the end of Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp’s run on Hal Jordan’s adventures but fear not as the story will continue in Green Lantern: Blackstars.

The new series will be written by Grant Morrison and Xermanico. Out November 6th, the series will explore who the Blackstars as the team fights demons of Ysmault, Mongul, and sets their sights on Earth. “Oa is the skeleton-paved haunt of vengeful demons,” teases Morrison on the new project, “And the Blackstars—a sinister cult of universal peace and harmony, involving surrender to the will of the insidious and/or possibly illuminated Controller Mu—are in the process of subjugating the universe to their creed.”

This series will sprout from The Green Lantern #12 which will somehow end all Green Lantern activity in the universe. That issue arrives October 2nd.

For the full scoop read the press release below!

Who are the Blackstars? What are they? Answers will be revealed as the unstoppable Blackstars set their sights on the demons of Ysmault, Mongul…and a tiny, backwater planet called Earth in Green Lantern: Blackstars #1. Paving the way for more exciting Green Lantern adventures in 2020, a dangerous new chapter of the Green Lantern mythology starts on November 6th.

“Oa is the skeleton-paved haunt of vengeful demons,” teases Morrison on the new project, “And the Blackstars—a sinister cult of universal peace and harmony, involving surrender to the will of the insidious and/or possibly illuminated Controller Mu—are in the process of subjugating the universe to their creed.”

Following the catastrophic events of The Green Lantern #12 by Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp, scheduled to hit shelves October 2nd, 2019, no Green Lanterns can be found patrolling their space sectors…not a single power ring lights the darkness! What happens in the finale of Morrison and Sharp’s incredible year-long run is shrouded in mystery, but the Green Lantern Corps is no more! Scratch that—they never existed in the first place. What has Hal Jordan done?

“Jordan’s one of the Blackstars’ primary operatives,” continues Morrison. “He’s central, although the Cosmic Vampire Countess Belzebeth vies with him for control of the narrative in Blackstars. Hal Jordan is the kind of man who will excel in any situation, so naturally he’s an elite Blackstar in this altered-continuity.”

Green Lantern: Blackstars #1, written by Grant Morrison with art by Xermanico, debuts in comic book stores and online retailers on Wednesday, November 6th with the first of three triptych covers by Liam Sharp and a variant cover by Darick Robertson.
