Abstract:
"Hal Jordan yearns for the thrill of discovery, but the days when astronaut and adventure were synonymous are long past. His gig prospecting asteroids for Ferris Galactic is less than fulfilling--but least he's not on Earth, where technology and culture have stagnated. He might be a nobody, but he's in space. 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, long since murdered by ruthless killing machines known as Manhunters. The odds against reinstating the Corps are nearly impossible...but doing the impossible is exactly what an astronaut like Hal Jordan was trained to do."-- Provided by publisher.

Summary

In the newest installment of the Earth One original graphic novel line, writer/artist Gabriel Hardman (INVISIBLE REPUBLIC) creates an all-new origin for the Emerald Warrior in GREEN LANTERN- EARTH ONE VOL. 1!

Hal Jordan yearns for the thrill of discovery, but the days when astronaut and adventure were synonymous are long past. His gig prospecting asteroids for Ferris Galactic is less than fulfilling--but least he's not on Earth, where technology and culture have stagnated. He might be a nobody, but he's in space.

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, long since murdered by ruthless killing machines known as Manhunters. The odds against reinstating the Corps are nearly impossible...but doing the impossible is exactly what an astronaut like Hal Jordan was trained to do.

From creator Gabriel Hardman, the critically acclaimed author of INVISIBLE REPUBLIC, comes a soaring new epic original graphic novel in the tradition of the best-selling WONDER WOMAN- EARTH ONE VOL. 1 by Grant Morrison and BATMAN- EARTH ONE VOL. 1 by Geoff Johns! GREEN LANTERN- EARTH ONE VOL. 1 is a radical look at the Lantern mythology and a great entry point for new readers.

Library Journal Review

The latest installment in DC's "Earth One" series, which presents classic characters with updated origins, finds Green Lantern Hal Jordan reimagined as an astronaut working on a mining operation in deep space. Stumbling across a wrecked spaceship, he takes possession of a green ring that imbues him with fantastical power, thrusting him into an epic adventure across an array of alien worlds. Soon he discovers that his ring is in fact a weapon formerly wielded by members of an intergalactic peacekeeping force, the Green Lantern Corps, which has been all but stamped out by rampaging robots known as Manhunters. The work of Bechko (Invisible Republic; Star Wars: Legacy) and Hardman (Invisible Republic) conveys the action well, with gritty, realistic ink tones that suit this darker, more grounded take on the character. But never fear-this is a fun, action/fantasy adventure through and through. Verdict Longtime Green Lantern fans will enjoy seeing favorite heroes and concepts cast in a new light, and anyone eager to discover a specific character without having to understand decades of continuity will definitely be satisfied and intrigued by the promise of future volumes.-Tom Batten, Grafton, VA © Copyright 2018.
