Green Lantern Collections Change Crossover Format with “Lights Out”


Thanks to C.E. once again for another bit of tpb news. In 2014, once the upcoming “Lights Out” crossover is long over, we’ll be graced with the opportunity to purchase the story in collected hardcover format. This time around though? The individual series will feature each others relevant issue!

Signaling perhaps a change in how DC might be collecting crossovers, all of the new Green Lantern books contain issues #24 of all the other series, the “Lights Out” crossover. For instance, Green Lantern collects issues #21-24 of its own series, the Green Lantern Annual #2, and the Villains Month Relic issue, plus issue #24 of the others; Green Lantern Corps includes issues #21-25 of its own series plus #24 of all the others, etc. This might seem like overkill, but indeed it means you can get a complete story in whatever book you might pick up (useful, perhaps, as readers acclimate to the new Green Lantern creative teams). There’s also an individual collection of the “Lights Out” crossover, though everything it includes can also be found elsewhere.


In other future crossover trade info, here is what the “Trinity War” collection will include: Justice League #21-23, Justice League of America #6-7, Justice League Dark #22-23, Constantine #5-6, Trinity of Sin: Pandora #1-3, and Trinity of Sin: Phantom Stranger #11.

Additionally, it looks as if the first Larfleeze collection will have the first 5 issues of the series.
