DC Comics’ Earth One line of graphic novels continues to expand, this time into the far reaches of space with Green Lantern: Earth One Vol. 1 by writer Corinna Bechko and writer/artist Gabriel Hardman with colorist Jordan Boyd.
Earth One stories reintroduce DC’s greatest heroes like Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman in a fresh comic book universe unburdened with years of continuity, often significantly changing elements of each character to better modernize their origins and create exciting new tales.
For Green Lantern, the story sees Hal Jordan re-envisioned as an astronaut who seeks the thrill of discovery, yet finds himself in an unfulfilling job prospecting asteroids for Ferris Galactic. His fortunes change when he finds a powerful green ring and learns that it came from the Green Lantern Corps, a group that was long ago murdered by killing machines called Manhunters. This sets him on a mission to reinstate the Corps, a nearly impossible task for the fearless Jordan.
Green Lantern: Earth One Vol. 1 will release on March 20, 2018.

this is an approach I’m comfortable with and have wanted to explore in
comics. Realistic sci-fi is only the beginning of this story; we have
something much more epic in store.”
Hal Jordan is usually depicted as a cocky, hothead test pilot,
he’s now a scientist who yearns to make new discoveries, so how he
approaches using the ring will be different.
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 explained. “That means 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
as 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
I really like the earth one series.
Though I was hoping that Aquaman would be next. I know Aquaman is
delayed because Manapul is doing Trinity and they probably want it to
come out with the movie. And JMS quit comics or whatever so I have no
idea what they’re going to do about earth one flash
