Green Lantern (New 52) #1 Recalled Due to "Tear Drop" error

DC Comics, November 2011.

Recalled 1 Star Rating: Common 10,001-100,000 Common

On September 15th, 2011, DC received reports of a printing error on the front cover of some copies of Green Lantern (New 52) #1 (ref: JUL110218). The flaw appears to be an irregular green loop ("tear drop" shape) and seems to have affected 10-15% of the initial print run.
