This month, DC Comics will release its next batch of Annuals. These special oversized issues will not only build off of the events in their respective series, but will also greatly impact the expanding DC Universe. Every day this week on THE SOURCE, we’ll be putting individual spotlights on each of these Annual issues by talking to various writers, artists, and editors to give you special sneak peeks at what’s to come! Next up is GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #1, by Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver, which serves as a prologue to October’s GREEN LANTERN crossover event, “Rise of the Third Army.”


"Ethan has been a brilliant collaborator and co-creator since the beginning of GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH,” Johns told THE SOURCE. “Introducing new concepts and revealing huge, enigmatic, dangerous and heroic characters to the Green Lantern universe is what we do best together. And we're hoping to continue that with GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #1. I'm not sure anyone realizes what we have in store for them ... and we like it that way."


"The joy of working with Geoff Johns is his unique insight into DC Comics' wide array of heroes and villains, and the development of those names and costumes into fully realized, complex characters,” added Van Sciver. “He gives hearts and souls to GREEN LANTERN's cast. And he's always got a plan.  It's always a pleasure to join him.”


GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #1 flies into stores on August 29.
