EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW: Green Lantern: New Guardians #5

Kyle may be a gifted artist, but there’s no drawing himself out of this scrape. Or is there?

Today we’re pleased to bring you an exclusive preview of next week’s Green Lantern: New Guardians #5, featuring the always fun to try and pronounce Orrery. Plus, the promise of an all new enemy known as Seraphon!

A spacecraft the size of a solar system is on a collision course with Oa, home of the Guardians! As the AWOL Green Lantern Kyle Rayner and members of each of the different Corps make their way to the alien vessel, deep within the ship – within the very sun that serves as the craft’s fuel source – the creature known as Seraphon stirs. A major new threat to the DC Universe debuts here!

Remember that time Vanessa Huxtable made a diorama of the solar system for her school’s science project and her best friend made working robots and Vanessa got a bad grade and accused her friend of cheating by having her dad help her make the robots but she totally didn’t she swears and she asked Cliff to drive her home even though she just got there for the sleepover? This is a little like that, but the solar system diorama is actually really awesome.

So, put on your sunglasses and click on the thumbnail for a colorful tease at the cosmic terrors to come!


  1. I’ve been loving this book. it’s the only GL title i’m still getting

  2. I love the Cosby Show and Venessa Huxtable tags. Even though I didn’t enlarge any of the images, that paragraph was worth my click in to this preview. Wish I’d seen that episode now.

  3. “Orrery” not “orrcry”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orrery

  4. I just read the first issue of this series this week and liked it a lot. Think I’m going to track down the rest and keep going if I like what I read.

  5. Beddard needs a raise and Tomasi needs to be fired. Having people use “damn” in the middle of sentences does not constitute character development.

    I really don’t see the purpose served by having the Corps title at this stage, particularly when it’s just the same old thing and both Hal and Kyle’s titles are really forging ahead in new, interesting and different directions quite different from things pre-New 52.

    Giv Beddard a raise, but don’t ever take him off the book. He gets Kyle and manages to give his take on the GL world and themes a completely different slant, taking the story off into places and themes that just wouldn’t work with were they tried with Hal, John or Guy.

    I may actually prefer this over Action Comics as my favourite of the New 52. In fact, I definitely do, much as I usually love Rag Moreles, the art here really makes the difference and Beddard’s writing lately has been on a par with Morrison’s.
