[[wysiwyg_imageupload:2123:]]The drums of war have been beating, the little blue men have been planning, and Hal Jordanhas been babysitting Sinestro so that he can discover its secret.

What secret? Why, the secret of the Third Army, an arc of cosmic proportions that will rage through all four Lantern properties – Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps, New Guardians and Red Lanterns – beginning in October.

What we discover and what the Guardians of the Universe do will change the New DCU and the mythos of Lanterns forever!

“In October, the Guardians’ Third Army rises to replace the Green Lantern Corps,” scribe Geoff Johns, who has been threading this storyline through the GL books for some time now, told DC: The Source. “But how is horrifying and why will change the Guardians and their ancient mission forever.

“As we discover what the Third Army actually means, our strongest Lanterns are targeted for absolute destruction. From Atrocitus to Guy Gardner to our newest Green Lantern from Earth -- who may have been wrongly chosen -- all their darkest secrets and failures will come to light.

“What is Sinestro's ultimate fate? Who is this new Green Lantern and why was he chosen? What is the Third Army? What will Atrocitus sacrifice to take on the Guardians? What will Larfleeze give up to find the one thing he wants? What happens to Guy Gardner when he's targeted -- after Hal Jordan? And, most importantly, who is the First Lantern?”

To commemorate the occasion, four interlocking covers have been done by the team of Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, Albert Oclair and Rod Reis – and they are awesome!

The time for questions is over, though, for battle lies on the horizon.

In October, the Third Army rises!
