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. When Jordan finds a powerful ring, he also finds a destiny to live up to. There are worlds beyond his own, unlike anything he ever imagined. But revelation comes with a price: the Green Lantern Corps has fallen, wiped out by ruthless killing machines known as Manhunters. The od more

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Mar 20, 2018

    While books in the Earth Oneline have been hit and miss,Green Lantern: Earth One Vol. 1 is most definitely in the hit section and is arguably the series' best yet. It simultaneously embraces the mythology while putting its own spin on it and delivers a true sci-fi adventure that doesn't shy away from the source material's fantastic elements. Bechko and Hardman write a compelling script while Hardman and Boyd make a visually great book that helps make it stand on its own. Read Full Review

    Bechko and Hardman have crafted a universe that has me excited to see what a Volume 2 could look like. With such a vast mythology to alter and play with Id love to see what they can do with the rest of it, especially with Sinestro. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Mar 13, 2018

    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

    All said, this book is a worthy edition to the Earth One line of hardcover books. It's worth the $24.99 price, and will look good on your shelf too. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Mar 12, 2018

    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

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Adam Frey Mar 14, 2018

    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
