Green Lantern: Earth One Vol. 1
Green Lantern: Earth One Vol. 1 | Gabriel Hardman
4 posts | 6 read | 2 to read
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! Co-writer/artist Gabriel Hardman (Invisible Republic) and co-writer Corinna Bechko bring us 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

I'm so thrilled that our book was nominated for an Eisner Award! I've never been nominated before. Guess I'll be going to San Diego in July! #comic #scifi

Gorgeous art and a reasonably inventive reboot make this one of the few successful Earth One books, though Wonder Woman Earth One remains the only book in the series that didn‘t feel 50 pages too short. There is some fun stuff in the margins and fuck do I like the look of it, but this could have used room to breathe. Still, an engaging reboot from an ambitious creative team. I‘m interested in more.

A more dystopian, sci-fi version of Green Lantern. I liked the alternate take and some of the twists it took. It felt like it could have been longer though. It‘s 144 pages but parts of it felt rushed. Still recommend it for the artwork and the story by the husband and wife writers of Invisible Republic who don‘t seem to be afraid to potentially piss off fans of other versions of the character.
