Blacker Than Blackest Night? Prepare For The ‘Green Lantern: Blackstars’ Mini

Last November, Grant Morrison relaunched the Green Lantern title. In less than a year, it looks like he will wipe out the Green Lanterns (again). Out of existence. Meaning, they never existed (Ryan Reynolds might be happy about that). Enter the Blackstars in new Green Lantern: Blackstars three-issue mini-series.

Grant Morrison will again be at the helm in Green Lantern: Blackstars, this time with art duties taken on by Xermanico. The writer describes the situation:

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.”

Of course it looks like Green Lantern Hal Jordan somehow screws things up again, and ends up with the Blackstars. More from Morrison:

“Jordan’s one of the Blackstars’ primary operatives” … “He’s central, although the Cosmic Vampire Countess Belzebeth vies with him for control of the narrative in Blackstars. Hal Jordan is the kind of man who will excel in any situation, so naturally he’s an elite Blackstar in this altered-continuity.”

This isn’t the Darkstars and it doesn’t even seem like its part of the Dark Multiverse, it’s Green Lantern: Blackstars and it starts on November 6th with issue 1 featuring the first of a triptych of covers by Liam Sharp, or a variant cover by Darick Robertson.
