Very cool! Another entry in DC’s ‘Earth One’ hardcover line and pocket ‘universe.’ This Hal Jordan is an astronaut for Ferris Galactic who must rebuild the Green Lantern Corps after all the emerald guardians were slaughtered by Manhunters. These are really cool modern takes on classic heroes.
“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 odds against reviving the Corps are nearly impossible…but doing the impossible is exactly what Hal Jordan was trained to do. From co-writer and artist Gabriel Hardman (Invisible Republic) comes a soaring original graphic novel that takes a radical new look at the mythology of Green Lantern and provides a great entry point for new readers”
