With its full solicitations being released on Monday, DC Comics has begun to reveal details about its November releases.

Following is a roundup:

* "The Rise of the Third Army" continues in Green Lantern #14 on Nov. 7, from writer Geoff Johns and artists Doug Mahnke and Christian Alamy. In the issue, with Hal Jordan missing, the Justice League, decides to go after the new Green Lantern to demand answers about their absent team member.

"We're going to be meeting a brand new Green Lantern in issue #0, and unlike his predecessors, he's not the sort of guy you'd be expecting to wear the ring. That's putting it mildly," said editor Matt Idelson. “After the events of Green Lantern Annual #1, Hal Jordan is MIA in a very big way, and our new Green Lantern finds himself in a new role, though his troubled life isn't going to go away in the slightest. In fact it's the things he's notorious for that in large part bring the Justice League into the picture -- they want to know what's happened to Hal, and what this guy thinks he's doing filling the role of Green Lantern. It's going to be intense, but also very, very cool."

The cover is by Mahnke and Mark Irwin.

* Artist Pete Woods joins writer Johns for Aquaman #14, in stores on Nov. 28.

The issue features the New 52 debut of Ocean Master.

The cover is by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado.

* Red Hood and the Outlaws #14, a "Death of the Family" tie-in issue, reunites the creative team of the upcoming Superman Annual #1, writer Scott Lobdell and guest artist Pascal Alixe.

"Superman vs. the Outlaws! Even with Starfire, it's a short fight -- but what a fight!" said editor Eddie Berganza. "Now what brings the Man of Steel on the trail of Red Hood and company will be leading into bigger things for both this book and Superman."

The issue arrives on Nov. 28 and sports a cover by Kenneth Rocafort.

* Tom DeFalco is writing Nightwing #13-14, with art by Andres Guinaldo and Mark Irwin.

" When writer Kyle Higgins needed a breather to gear up for the Joker's monstrous return in issue #15, I turned to Tom, who pitched in on issue #0,” series editor Brian Cunningham said. "I'll just come out and say it: Tom ranks among the best ever at writing street-level heroes. And Tom really delivered with his first solo trip to Gotham, following the narrative that Kyle has developed without skipping a beat, and helping to set up the Joker arc. And it felt natural for Tom to continue exploring the character of Lady Shiva, who first appears in Nightwing #0.

"In this story, both Dick and Shiva have grown up some since their first encounter -- they're not teenagers anymore -- so it'll be fun to see how each fares in a fair fight. Wait, did I say fair fight? Forget it -- Shiva remains by far the better fighter, so it's up to Dick to find a way just stay alive!"

* David Lapham joins writer China Mieville for a stand-alone story in Dial H #6, in stores on Nov. 7.

In the issue, Nelson is stuck inside his house after he dials up a politically incorrect hero and Manteau reveals some of her forbidden and dangerous guises in the Refusenik Dossier.

"Dial H is one of those offbeat comic concepts like The Creeper or Doom Patrol or Metal Men that every artist and comics lover digs and secretly wants to draw," Lapham said.

The issue features a cover by Brian Bolland.
