October's "Rise of the Third Army" event, a crossover through DC's Green Lantern comics, was made official this morning. The event, which Newsarama first learned about in April from DC executives and later discussed with writer Geoff Johns, will start with Green Lantern #13 on October 3rd.
The "Third Army" story will span across Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps, Green Lantern: New Guardians and Red Lanterns. DC released a teaser image by Aquaman artist Ivan Reis to mark the announcement.

The story will spin out of the events in Green Lantern Annual #1, which hits on August 29th. The comic has a mysterious "bleeding" cover that echoes the iconic image of Superman's symbol bleeding in the "Death of Superman" storyline. The issue, which reunites Green Lantern gurus Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver, has solicitation copy that reads: "Everything changes here! EVERYTHING!"

The story will also center on the "First Lantern," who appears to be the focus of September's Green Lantern #0 issue and showed up on the cover of Superman Annual #1. (The character also appears on the splash image teasing 2013's "Trinity War" from DC's 2012 FCBD issue.) All of the Green Lantern comics in September are additionally promoted as "prologues" to "Third Army."

EARTH 2 #3: Preview The Origin of Alan Scott

• The all-new origin of ALAN SCOTT GREEN LANTERN – unlike any GL origin that's come before!
• The debut of the all-new HAWKGIRL!
• And Jay Garrick, THE FLASH, meets his first Super Hero!
Written by: James Robinson
Art by: Nicola Scott, Trevor Scott
Cover by: Ivan Reis, Joe Prado
Variant Cover by: Ivan Reis
Color/B&W: Color
Page Count: 32
U.S. Price: 2.99
On Sale Date: Jul 4 2012

When we last left the alternate reality of DC Comics’ Earth 2, wealthy jet-setter Alan Scott’s proposal to his boyfriend Sam literally blew up in his face. Their train erupted in flame, tumbling wildly off course. Amidst the confusion, Alan is certain that some of that fire is an otherworldly green. But how could that be possible? The Apokolips War is long ended, and life is supposed to be returning to normal. What caused this horrific explosion? Did anyone make it out alive?
With this preview of next week’s Earth 2 #3, it appears that Alan is the sole survivor of the explosion. Sam is gone.

It’s a controversial move on Robinson’s part, not simply due to the firestorm surrounding Alan’s very public coming out. Because Alan Scott is also a Green Lantern, the loss of a significant other is wound up in a whole lot of baggage. Fortunately Sam wasn’t in a refrigerated car when the explosion went off, but is that enough to escape the much maligned trope? It’s a risk worth mentioning, but in the end we’re rooting for Robinson, Scott and Earth 2. It’s been an exciting addition to the New 52 and the quality has impressed, despite (and perhaps because of) the sheer number of contentious revisions to some revered properties.
Let’s take a sneak peek at the secret origin of Earth 2‘s Green Lantern!

Rise of the Third Army!

From DC

This October, the “Rise of the Third Army” will spawn across GREEN LANTERN, GREEN LANTERN CORPS, GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS and RED LANTERNS.

To commemorate this exciting storyline, artist Ivan Reis has created a stunning piece of artwork that will be split into 4 interconnecting covers for each of the books involved. Take an exclusive first look below!

“This was the first time in my career that I’ve illustrated 4 interconnecting covers,” Reis told THE SOURCE. “It’s also the second time I’ve done a 4-page spread (the first one was in BLACKEST NIGHT). That one had just 12 characters so I loved returning to the Green Lantern universe to work on this image. I had too much fun working on these hundreds of characters.”

So how will the “Rise of Third Army” play out in all of these books? We asked the writers of each series to tease a little bit about what to expect from their respective titles come this October.

GREEN LANTERN writer Geoff Johns:

“Absolute power corrupts absolutely--and the Guardians time is finally here. The Lantern titles spent the first year of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 re-establishing themselves, but it all comes back together with year 2 starting with GREEN LANTERN #0 and leading into October's #13's - which share an amazing cover by Ivan Reis. In October, the Guardians' Third Army rises to replace the Green Lantern Corps - but how is horrifying and why will change the Guardians and their ancient mission forever. As we discover what the Third Army actually means, our strongest Lanterns are targeted for absolute destruction. From Atrocitus to Guy Gardner to our newest Green Lantern from Earth - who may have been wrongly chosen - all their darkest secrets and failures will come to light. What is Sinestro's ultimate fate? Who is this new Green Lantern and why was he chosen? What is the Third Army? What with Atrocitus sacrifice to take on the Guardians? What will Larfleeze give up to find the one thing he wants? What happens to Guy Gardner when he's targeted after Hal Jordan? And, most importantly, who is the First Lantern?”

GREEN LANTERN CORPS writer Peter J. Tomasi:

“How sick is that cover?! C'mon, on your feet -- let's give it up to Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, Albert Oclair, and Rod Reis -- they've earned their own power rings for the willpower to finish this masterpiece! The Guardians and the Third Army want to break the Green Lantern Corps -- and they've now got their sights on Guy Gardner and John Stewart! The question is not IF the Guardians can accomplish their mission, but how horribly will they shatter our ringslingers’ lives!”


“In GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS, Kyle Rayner has gathered a team of Lanterns from all seven colors of the spectrum. As the Third Army strikes, Kyle must combine all seven shades of power within himself.  A bigger and badder lineup of New Guardians will push Kyle to become our secret weapon against the onslaught of the Third Army.”

And last but certainly not least, RED LANTERNS writer Peter Milligan:

“The Red Lanterns are continuing their mission to bring bloody vengeance to an unjust world when they run into (or are run into) a mysterious enemy with no mouth and a curious resistance to death. One Red Lantern succumbs to this new adversary, while Atrocitus finds a way to fight back – which entails returning to a place of great pain and associating with an ancient nemesis.”

Don’t miss the “Rise of the Third Army,” beginning with GREEN LANTERN #13, in stores October 3.
