So you saw the Green Lantern movie recently and want to get in on some comics. I’ve got some good news and some bad news for you. The bad news is, you missed our Green Lantern Whiz Bang a couple weeks ago, which featured TPBs at 40% off. The good news is, there have been several Green Lantern movie tie-in comics to come out — featuring the likes of Abin Sur, Kilowog and Tomar-Re, all of which are in stock — and this week we get the big one:
GREEN LANTERN MOVIE PREQUEL
HAL JORDAN #1
Written by Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Donald de Line

Written by the creative talents behind the blockbuster motion picture, these exclusive one-shots tell the tales of the movie characters before the events of the film. What were Hal Jordan, Sinestro, Kilowog, Abin Sur and The Guardians all doing before the curtains rose on June 17? Experience it all in these one-shots, as told by the superstar Green Lantern movie team including producer Geoff Johns, producer/screenwriter Greg Berlanti and producer Donald De Line!
And if that’s not enough Hal Jordan for you, we’re also set to get his chapter in the Flashpoint saga, in the pages of FLASHPOINT: HAL JORDAN #1 (OF 3). Flash Fact! He never got the ring!
So it’s a good week for old Hal "Highball" Jordan. From electric body suit-type Green Lantern uniform to US military issue flight jacket, he’s looking pretty good.
DC Comics’ Green Lantern Movie Prequel: Hal Jordan and Flashpoint: Hal Jordan both come in on Wednesday!
Regular visitors to both the store and the website know how much we enjoy Robert Kirkman’s zombie epic The Walking Dead. Especially recently, as something quite shocking happened to Rick’s son Carl and we’ve all been anxiously awaiting the resolution to that particular event.
Unfortunately, the solicitation to the issue that comes out tomorrow, THE WALKING DEAD #86, says only this: How do we deal with what comes next? So that’s not very much help. Doesn’t matter, though. We’ll be reading it with great relish.
Also worth noting that the Walking Dead Vol. 14 TP came out just last week, collecting issues #79-84, only two short of this week’s issue!
Finally, we wanted to give both Image and Walking Dead some credit. The two most recent issues have both included a second full comic as a flip book! Last issue came with Witch Doctor #0 on the flip side (and issue #1 of that series comes out this week) and this week’s Walking Dead comes with Elephantmen: Man and Elephantman #1! Just a cool thing for them to do.
Image Comics’ The Walking Dead #86 comes in on Wednesday!
We’re gonna change things up this week and kick things off with the indy side of comics! For starters, look for the return of the biggest butt-kicker on Lonely Street in the pages of Dark Horse’s The Goon #34, the first issue of that series since 2009! And at this point it’s impossible for us not to mention The Walking Dead #86 from Image.
Moving on to the Big Two, we’re set to get FF #5, Ultimate Comics X #5, Uncanny X-Men #539, Venom #4, Wolverine Best There Is #7, Amazing Spider-Man #664 and more!
From DC, look for a landmark Vertigo issue in a store-favorite series with Scalped #50. Also from the Vertigo stable, American Vampire #16! From the main DCU, look for four new Flashpoint titles with Green Arrow Industries #1, Hal Jordan #1, Project Superman #1 and The Canterbury Cricket #1!
All that plus Previews and more!
The full list follows…
