GL_NG_GODHEAD_1

Which is not like the Infinity Gauntlet at all. Honest.

As we learned during Green Lantern: Lights Out, the universe's ring-wielders broke through the Source Wall that surrounds the universe and stole secrets of immense cosmic power. One problem? Highfather, the leader of the New Gods, knows what they did and is trying to finds those secrets for himself by using one ring of every color of the emotional spectrum. Of course, nothing is ever that simple and what follows will threaten to alter the very fabric of the universe as we know it in "Godhead", a monthlong crossover event that finds Green Lantern and the New Gods entangled in a struggle for intergalactic survival.

And you know what? They've got some actually decent, interestingly designed covers. Such as the one above for
