Every Wednesday, we get tons of new comics, trade paperbacks and graphic novels. Here are just a few highlights from the week of 9/9/15.
Green Lantern/New Gods: Godhead Hardcover by Robert Venditti (Author), Van Jensen (Author), Billy Tan
A year ago, Kyle Rayner, the White Lantern, breached the Source Wall at the edge of the universe, killing himself to save creation and inadvertently tapping into the Life Equation. Highfather of the New Gods has become convinced that the Equation can be accessed by combining the colors of the emotional spectrum through the rings of the universe’s Lantern Corps. Fearing the ring bearers too unevolved to wield power that they do not fully understand, Highfather decrees that all who wield a Power Ring must relinquish it to the New Gods.
With the fate of every living creature across infinite worlds in the balance, there is no time for peaceful resolution or the folly of mortals. The Lanterns will willingly give up their rings—or die.
