Free Comic book Day is coming up on May 7th this year and DC Comics has announced their plans for it by tying two different events together. With the Green Lantern movie due out in June, and Free Comic Book Day being an event that does draw people in, they're putting out a Green Lantern edition that's design to introduce new readers to the property while also offering something to the established readers. And in addition to that, they're providing a preview here for the Flashpoint event series which is out this year.
If you're a fan of Green Lantern, with this book being a reprint of issue #30, is it one that you'd share with people new to the character? Don't forget to check out the official Free Comic Book Day site as well to see what else is planned!
