Green Lanterns #51 hits your local comic book store on July 18, but thanks to DC Comics, Monkeys Fighting Robots has an exclusive five-page preview for you.
The book is written by Dan Jurgens, with art by Mike Perkins, colors by HI-FI, and letters by Dave Sharpe. The cover by Perkins and Wil Quintana, and the variant cover is by Chris Stevens.
Perkins shared this splash-page from the issue on his Facebook wall.
The issue is just the second chapter of Jurgens’ run, following stints by Tim Seeley and Sam Humphries. Shockingly, it’s the legend’s first time writing a Lantern title, though he has used the Corps before in the many, many DC Comics he’s written. Jurgens is fresh off of a run on Action Comics that led into issue #1000.
Perkins is best known for his work at Marvel. He adapted Stephen King’s The Stand with writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, and was part of the art team on Ed Brubaker’s seminal Captain America run. The artist worked on the Lanterns in 2000 for Green Lantern Versus Aliens, a DC Comics/Dark Horse crossover.
