The graphic novel will be one of the many to emerge from the popular Earth One line from DC Comics the other books center on classic characters being Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.
Gabriel Hardman tells DC Comics the essence of the story and the elements inside the emerald knight as he explores the mysteries amongst the stars.
“Approaching this as an Earth One story gives us the opportunity to go back to the core concept of Green Lantern and interpret it through the lens of a modern, grounded sci-fi story while still being true to the Silver Age roots of Hal Jordan.”
Corinna Bechko tells DC Comics the vision and mind of our hero as the power ring binds itself to Hal. He will engage the ring with a more intellectual connection than in previous iterations.
“Hal Jordan is a smart, capable person with a space and science background who has a lot of untapped potential even before he finds the ring.”
Bechko continues to tell DC Comics the expanse of how the science fiction role is important to the story and Hal Jordan.
“He’s going to approach everything the ring does from the perspective of a scientist, but he’s going to employ it for action and adventure. The result for us writers is the opportunity to fully embrace the science fiction aspects of the story in a way that would be impossible with a lot of other characters.”
In brightest day, in blackest night, comic book fans look out for the greatest Green Lantern of all time is making a come back in a spectacular fashion. The stars will burn green, as Hal Jordan will cast his light across the cosmos.
