With retailer orders due on Monday, DC has revealed what's inside March 25's From Beyond the Unknown Giant #1.

DC Associate Editor Dave Wielgosz is writing the lead Green Lantern story titled "In Gloom," to be drawn by Kenneth Rocafort.

"Green Lantern Hal Jordan is responsible for policing all of Space Sector 2814, but more often than not his attention is on his home planet, Earth," reads DC's description of the 16-page story. "When the alien bounty hunter Bolphunga crashes to Earth pursued by a team of murderous vigilantes, Hal learns the truth: these rebels have taken justice into their own hands, and Hal himself has been found guilty!"

That's followed by a Kamandi story from former Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim and Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass artist Steve Pugh.

"On Earth-A.D. (After Disaster), the world is a very different place-a postapocalyptic wasteland full of talking animals and other strange sights. While exploring his dystopian home, Kamandi, the last living human, stumbles upon a robot butler patiently awaiting the return of his human masters, who disappeared years before," reads the story's description. "Kamandi takes pity on the loyal butler and tries to reunite him with his long-lost family...however unusual that reunion might be."

A third story will round out the new material for the issue - an 8-page Legion of Super-Heroes story from writer/artist Dan Jurgens and inker Norm Rapmund.

"In the far future of the 31st century, the super-powered teens known as the Legion of Super-Heroes protect all the citizens of the United Planets," reads the 8-page story's description. "But when Legionnaires Sun Boy and WildFire are kidnapped, their teammates must infiltrate a mysterious ice planet to try to save their friends...and the planet!"

The other 68 pages of this 100-page giant will be filled with reprints of "The Riddle of Little Earth Lost," from DC Comics Presents #3 (1978). "The 50-Story Killer," from The Brave and the Bold #113 (1974); and "In Blackest Night," from Green Lantern Annual #3 (1987).
