Supergirl to Join the Red Lanterns in February


This February, DC Comics will bring Green Lantern and Red Lanterns together for a mini-crossover flipbook in the wake of the "Lights Out" storyline, and the rage-filled team of blood-spewing ring-slingers have themselves a surprising new recruit: Kara Zor-El, better known as Supergirl.

She's been getting more space-savvy in recent times; her new creative team will bring Lobo along with them, at a time when Lobo is being set up for a major storyline of his own with cosmic implications.

Neither DC nor the creative team were talking about the book just yet, but here's the solicitation text for the comic, along with the cover that was exclusively provided to Newsarama, leaving little doubt as to the issue's big story:
