Warning: Spoilers for the DC Relaunch of Green Lantern and today's GL#67.

 

Earlier today, DC revealed the final cover to the DC Relaunch of Green Lantern #1, as they were keeping it under wraps, waiting for the conclusion of the "War of Green Lanterns" to hit (finally!).

For those who read today's issue of Green Lantern #67, this all makes sense, and I guess, sort of fits in with what is going on in the world of Flashpoint.

Not only does Sinestro become a member of the Green Lantern Corps - but Hal's ring gets taken away!

I didn't see either coming, to be honest, so I was taken aback by both.

I find it interesting that DC is going with Sinestro to headline the relaunch of GL seeing how the movie just came out (okay, maybe it does make sense). Futhermore, I suppose with an alien at the helm this takes GL further into the "cosmic" category we CBN'ers enjoy. Or, I suppose you could argue, it "grounds" Hal, which might lead to a more earthcentric spin?

Either way, I find it to be an enjoyable twist on things, and look forward to what comes next this September!
