Is it a bolt on or set neck? Of course the one advantage to a bolt on is the ease or replacing it and usually cheaper than a repair. You can get busted HS fixed and depending on the luthier it can be fixed just as good as new. To replace the neck on a set neck guitar can be done but usually quite expensive. I know people who have sent their Les Pauls to Gibson to be repaired but never asked the cost.

Lol.
Go take it to a licensed guitar tech, because Gibsons all have set necks. You can't replace it.

KILL THE INTRUDER!!!

anyway yeah, get it to a luthier of some sort, will require some gluing and maybe some sort of mesh to strength it

On the plus side, some people do say that gibsons sound better if they have been repaired, though im not so convinced myself

Is there a plate on the back of the guitar where the body meets the neck? Are there bolts connecting the body to the neck? If so, it's a BOLT-ON. If not, it's either a set neck or a neck-thru. If the latter is true, then you are going to need the help of a skilled luthier to repair your guitar. If it's a bolt-on, you are in luck as they are very easy to replace.

It can be repaired!!! Take it to a pro luthier and have the broken part glued back on. And if you decide to go the new neck route... take it to a pro luthier and get it glued back on

...Yeah, you really just need to get a professional repair. A set neck's head cracking off isn't something you can fix or repair yourself without prior training.
