by Jarrod Jones. Hal Jordan is about to venture into parts of the galaxy that would once be considered unthinkable, but like any cop worth a damn he still keeps backup handy.

Only this time, his backup ain’t the Green Lantern Corps.

November 6 marks the debut issue of Green Lantern: Blackstars, the latest chapter in Grant Morrison’s heady, grungy, astro-popping-ly power-packed Green Lantern saga! Jordan has allied himself with the Blackstars following the insane fallout of The Green Lantern #12 (in stores now—right now!), and his future as Earth’s top space-cop is now up in the air. Morrison teams with Injustice artist Xermanico and TGL colorist Steve Oliff to further the intrigue between Hal and his new, strange running crew—and you can feast your eyes on all the cosmic happenings right now, this minute!

And with this unlettered 7-page preview comes a proper surprise: If you follow The Green Lantern artist Liam Sharp on Twitter (as I do), you already know that he’s been teasing pieces to his wild, acid-washed triptych cover for over a month—and now you can view the full cover to Green Lantern: Blackstars #1 in all its epic, space-shattering glory!

This November, you’ll be crying out to the heavens—Long live the Blackstars!

From DC: The Darkness of the Blackstars Spreads Across the Universe!

The Green Lantern Corps is no more! What has Hal Jordan done? Following the catastrophic events of The Green Lantern #12, no Green Lanterns can be found patrolling their space sectors… and not a single power ring lights the darkness. Across the universe, once-familiar faces now wear a different uniform and enforce a new type of galactic law. Long live the Blackstars! Who are they? What are they? Answers will be revealed as Grant Morrison’s Green Lantern saga reaches its most dangerous, strangest chapter yet, alongside artist Xermanico (Injustice)!
