Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp's The Green Lantern Season 2 Drops From 12 to 8 Issues – Is This 5G?

This Wednesday sees the release of the first issue of The Green Lantern Season 2 by Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp. This series has been a real high point in DC Comics' lineup over the past couple of years. But enjoy it while you can. Bleeding Cool reported that Green Lantern would be one of the titles getting a 5G revamp at the end of 2020/beginning of 2011. But could it be a little sooner than that?

Talking to Den of Geek, Liam Sharp told them,

Season 2 ended up having to be shorter than the first season so Grant and I have responded by going all-out nuts with it, and basically having as much fun as it's possible to have on a monthly! The season opener is about as epic as I've ever been, and I pushed myself incredibly hard on that one – I wanted it to be special. Issue 2 is strange and spooky and retro and spiky – kind of a horror-style Doctor Who vibe art-wise, with Grant providing a post-modern head-scratcher of a script. And issue 3 is all smoke and cloud and fog mixed with Top Gun, so I did that one in full color – it's unlike anything else in the run so far. So yes, we're freeing ourselves up to bring you the most creative and wild and, hopefully, fun book we can!

Shorter? How much shorter?

The series was solicited as a twelve-issue series, and that is still present on the Diamond listing, but that has clearly now changed. Sales on the series are still good… could this indicate the date when 5G is meant to begin? Eight months from now?

Out tomorrow…
