The newest Earth One original graphic novel presents an all-new origin for the Emerald Warrior!
Hal Jordan yearns for the thrill of discovery, but the days when astronaut and adventure were synonymous are long gone. His gig prospecting asteroids for Ferris Galactic is less than fulfilling-but at least he's not on Earth, where technology and culture have stagnated.

    Green Lantern: Earth One #1 is a great first installment in what I hope will be several more adventures of this excitingly different take on the Green Lantern mythology. Corinna Bechko's and Gabriel Hardman's re-envisioned Green Lantern is a breath of fresh air for the franchise well grounded in reality and filled with the fantastic. This is science fiction tale of redemption and rebirth that is relevant to the times. Read Full Review

    Gabriel Hardman and Corinna Bechko hit a home run with this shit man. There's a lot left in the air and so many strings to be tied up. This is what Green Lanterns needed in order to be re-envisioned. A blank landscape with new rules is all that's needed to separate this iteration of Green Lanterns from the mythology we've become accustomed to. Read Full Review

    In the end,Green Lantern: Earth One isn't a rehash of the traditional Hal Jordan story, but neither does it abandon its roots. It's fairly close to an "Elseworlds" spin on the story, taking a familar story and giving it an alien overlay. This may put it at the forefront of the Earth One line, believe it or not: it's high quality, keeps to its roots, but still allows itself to stand free of repetition. Read Full Review

    They take there time, but at the end, I was right there with the new Lantern team.
    I loved this Hall Jordan with many heavy misjudging action to overcome.
    I love many Lantern stories, but this on as a special place.

    Arts - Love the art that I know from Invincible Republic. 3/3
    Feeling - I will wait for a 2 ... The only Earth One title with Batman to convincing me. 2/2
