If you’ve been enjoying The Green Lantern by Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp, your reading list will be soon be undergoing a big change.

DC Comics has announced that October’s issue #12 will be the end of the series (for now). This isn’t a huge surprise, as Morrison confirmed before the book even launched that issues #1-12 would be the “first season” of his storyline.

But with an ending comes a new beginning. DC also announced a November debut for Green Lantern: Blackstars, written by Morrison and illustrated by Xermanico, spinning out of plot thread from the current series.

DC’s official description reads as follows:

Following the catastrophic events of The Green Lantern #12 by Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp, scheduled to hit shelves October 2nd, 2019, no Green Lanterns can be found patrolling their space sectors…not a single power ring lights the darkness! What happens in the finale of Morrison and Sharp’s incredible year-long run is shrouded in mystery, but the Green Lantern Corps is no more! Scratch that—they never existed in the first place. What has Hal Jordan done?

According to the writer,

“Oa is the skeleton-paved haunt of vengeful demons. And the Blackstars—a sinister cult of universal peace and harmony, involving surrender to the will of the insidious and/or possibly illuminated Controller Mu—are in the process of subjugating the universe to their creed.”

Here’s the solicitation for October’s last TGL issue:

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, I feel like the comics medium & characters are part of my DNA.
