Jurgens Shifts from Action Comics to Green Lanterns in July

After two years spent writing the adventures of Superman in Action Comics, Dan Jurgens is trading in his cape for a Green Lantern ring. Starting with Green Lanterns #50, he will be the new ongoing writer on the series, and Mike Perkins will provide interiors and covers. Artist Chris Stevens will be doing variant covers for the title as well.

The official synopsis for the titles hints at a new conflict coming from the source of the Green Lantern Corps' power: the Central Power Battery. According to the Guardians of the Universe, there is something of an "infection" within it, bringing flashbacks of the Yellow Impurity brought about by the presence of Parallax within the Battery.

Jurgens' run on the title also looks to introduce some conflict between stars Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz. The two have been inseparable for some time now, but Jessica may be looking to quit and a murder could turn the two against each other.
