We thought we had seen the cover to September's Green Lantern #1. It turns out that bloody fist with the Green Lantern power ring isn't the actual cover. Or perhaps it's a variant.

Today, DC's The Source has revealed the cover to Green Lantern #2 by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado featuring the newest member of the Green Lantern Corps.

No Caption Provided

Sinestro is now a freaking Green Lantern (again)? What is going on? If you didn't have a urge to check out Green Lantern #1 in September, you should now.


Here's the solicit for Green Lantern #2 from The Source.

A 'new' or 'old' Green Lantern? Is he a GL 'again' or 'still'... or is it just a cover to mislead everyone? :)

I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be a flashback.  Or another Origin story.  Oh John Stewart, where art thou?

This has gotta mean they're redoing Hal's origin and retelling the formation of the Sinestro Corps.

If people paid attention to the solicits and the original announcement they knew that the bloody fist wasn't the cover, considering the solicit listed Ivan Reis as the artist, and the bloody fist cover clearly had Dave Johnson's signature on it. Plus when the new GL titles were first announced, Geoff Johns commented in the announcement that they couldn't reveal the real GL #1 cover yet, but assured us that it would reveal something game changing. 
But holy shit, really? Although I kind of saw it coming. As soon as I saw the words " You're not going to believe who the latest Green Lantern is." I though, Sinestro, Atrocitus, or Alfred. 
Seriously, Alfred deserves a Green Lantern ring. Look at what he's put up with for years!

Yawza! Sinestro Man ? Well that's a true redemption! But what happens to the Sinestro Corps ? Will it be "Arkillo Corps"? or "Parallax Corps"?

Don't judge a book by it's cover when has a cover of a comic been correct about the inside story? I mean look at Cry for Justice it has Freeman/Shazam making out with Supergirl, and that didn't happen in the comic at all.

  Nah, my urge to check this out is still non-existent.

Wait, it just hit me, he's not just the newest Green Lantern. He's the new Green Lantern OF SECTOR 2814. 
That wasn't his sector before, why is it now? And what does it mean for John and/or Hal? (Or was John promoted to Honor Guard at the end of Revolt of the Alpha Lanterns, I forget.)

but is it Sinestro, or Flashpoint Sinestro?

EDIT: after reading GL#67 this totally makes sense. I take back my sarcasm.

I'm just excited that it appears that they aren't going to be using the movie style costumes in the reboot like they have been in Flashpoint....also Ivan Reis is sick!

Geoff Johns has done hill but this hit rock-bottom!
And just for the record what there to surprised about? Everyone been predicting this since day one. Don't you think Johns is a tad bit predictable.

He was always a villain! Even in his first appearance! That's the whole point of his character, but Geoff Johns is ruining it for me!

Ironic how out of the four musketeers it is Hal who no longer has a Green Lantern comic.
Then again Sinestro was the coolest part of the GL movie...

You know, as much as I like Green Lantern, I can't bring myself to care about this. it's not that I love or hate Sinestro being a Lantern, but I simply don't care. No emotional response. I'm not curious to see how this comes about, nor do I think it's a bad move. In fact, all I could think was "Eh, him." and that was that. Now, if I'm the only one to feel this way (it could be because I am insanely tired) then it's all good. But if there are more people who simply do not give a rat's arse, then there just might be something wrong with the way GL is being (not) relaunched.

Are you people even reading GL? all this happens within the story, it is not some retcon out of nowhere or anything. Just read the latest issue.
and if you do not read Johns' run, why are you here in the first place?

I'm not even a Green Lantern fan, really, and seeing this was pretty awesome. 
And it's stuff like this and Barbara Gordon walking again that makes me excited for the DC relaunch.  Stuff that shouldn't/couldn't happen in the DC Universe as is.
