The most secretive and enigmatic lantern corps is no doubt the Indigo Tribe.  They wield the light of compassion and little else is known about them.  Luckily, starting in the March 2012 issue Green Lantern #7, we will get some insight to the reclusive Indigo Lanterns.

“Tor lorek san, bor nakka mur,
Natromo faan tornek wot ur.
Ter Lantern ker lo Abin Sur,
Taan lek lek nok–Formorrow Sur!”
-Oath of the Indigo Tribe

Not much is known about the mysterious Indigo Tribe; even their oath is all but impenetrable to anyone not of their numbers. But the upcoming storyline of GREEN LANTERN will explore their secrets, revealing shocking truths that will shake the foundations of the entire Lantern universe.

Wielding the light of Compassion, the reclusive Indigo Tribe will be the focus of an ongoing story which begins with GREEN LANTERN #7 – written by fan-favorite, critically acclaimed author Geoff Johns and illustrated by artists Doug Mahnke and Christian Alamy.

In “The Secret of the Indigo Tribe,” the uneasy alliance of Hal Jordan and Sinestro continues, as they are taken to the Indigo homeworld to uncover the truths behind a heinous crime. But what crime could keep this unlikely duo together, driving them to investigate a corps ostensibly dedicated to the spread of goodwill throughout the galaxy? And what dark secrets will Hal and Sinestro discover out in the unknown reaches of deep space?

 

As a huge Green Lantern fan, I have long  been waiting for some details about the Indigo Tribe.  Aside from the Orange Lanterns, they are perhaps the most interesting of the Corps, and I have been disappointed that (until now) DC hasn’t done more with them. In fact, I would have preferred to have an a book about the Indigo Tribe instead of Red Lanterns, which for me as been one of the more disappointing titles of the New 52.
