DC Announces Green Lantern Movie Prequel Comics

For the last few years, Geoff Johns has been the driving force behind the Green Lantern comics and he has helped guide that series into becoming one of DC’s most popular superhero franchises. It’s fair to say that Johns has also had a hand in the upcoming "Green Lantern" movie as well, with several plot elements from the film originating in Johns’ various storylines.

And for the newly announced Green Lantern movie tie-in comics, Johns will be joining frequent collaborator Peter Tomasi (Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors) and the screenwriters behind the film, Greg Berlanti, Michael Green (Superman/Batman) and Marc Guggenheim (Young X-Men), among others. The five $2.99 one-shots were revealed earlier today at DC’s Source Blog.

Each issue will follow their respective characters through stories that take place before the "Green Lantern" movie. DC also indicated that all five one-shots will be released in May and will be available digitally for $2.99 on the same day that they hit comic stores.

The "Green Lantern" film will be landing in theaters on June 17.
