With movies in the pipeline for the summer, it's certainly interesting to watch how the comic companies try to take advantage of it. DC Comics is ramping up for the summer release of Green Lantern by launching a series of prequel comics in May that will be largely handled by the people who worked on the movie itself to help tie it all together. Hal Jordan, Sinestro, Kilowog, Abin Sur and the Guardians are all getting their own standalone one shots that will run for 32 pages and retail for $2.99. They're also the latest announcements of titles from DC Comics that are getting the same-day digital treatment. All the editions will utilize movie artwork for their covers.

Experience it all in these one-shots, as told by the superstar Green Lantern movie team including producer Geoff Johns (GREEN LANTERN, THE FLASH), screenwriter Michael Goldenberg, producer/screenwriter Greg Berlanti, producer Donald De Line, screenwriter Michael Green (SUPERMAN/BATMAN) and screenwriter Marc Guggenheim (JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA). Each issue will be available day-and-date digitally for $2.99.
