Could we be about to experience the first Marvel/DC inter-company crossover in over a decade? That may be the case, according to the solicitation for May's The Green Lantern #7. When one thinks about an entire universe existing inside of a well-known piece of comic book jewelry, one thinks of The Soul Gem–one of the Infinity Gems from the Marvel Universe. But at rival publisher DC, Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp will reveal that Hal Jordan's power ring houses a universe of its own:
After sacrificing himself to save the entire universe from a cosmic WMD, Hal Jordan finds himself trapped inside his own power ring! And he discovers an entire universe lies inside it, populated with souls whose lives are threatened when his ring runs out of power! Can Hal save yet another universe one issue after saving the last? Only Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp know the answer within this classic run in the making!
Is the green for Gamora? Find out when The Green Lantern #7 hits stores in May.
Bleeding Cool has been mining articles from DC's May solicitations all morning after Rumourmonger-in-Chief Rich Johnston "obtained" a copy of the catalog while everyone else in the U.S. was on holiday. As a result, the sweet, sweet clicks are all ours as other website are forced to stew in the juices of their own embargo agreements.
"It's gettin' bloody harder to sneak into the DC Comics offices while dressed as a potted plant with all of these budget cuts," Johnston told us when asked for comment, noting that even the publisher's potted plant budget has been slashed by 60%. "Oi used to dress up as a nice sansevieria, but that's a bit too ritzy these days, so now Oi have to infiltrate as a shabby philodendron."
"Pip pip," Johnston said, his eyes glowing with the thought of all the clicks.
