While there’s been no formal announcement from DC Comics it seems as though the publisher has let slip that Volume 2 of the Green Lantern: Earth One graphic novels has not only been fast tracked, but it will see release in June of 2020. The hardcover graphic novel was found listed in a catalog from DC Comics and already has an Amazon listing with a June 9, 2020 date. This of course could be premature, but it certainly sounds like the first volume getting nominated for an Eisner has motivated DC to invite the creative team of Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman back for another go at it. If the published information is correct the duo plan on introducing John Stewart to their reimaged take on the Green Lantern mythology in a very interesting way. Here’s the solicitation information that appeared for the new volume.
Hal Jordan and John Stewart must team up to save the last Green Lantern Guardian from an evil force!
Manhunters, alien races, rings of power–it’s a lot for the people of Earth to absorb. Especially when an interplanetary incident forces their protector, Hal Jordan, to leave on a rescue mission that results in the discovery that there’s a new player in the galaxy: Yellow Lanterns!
While they seem a benign force for peace, Jordan can’t get comfortable with how much power they wield, or their bizarre, lockstep behavior. When fellow Earthling John Stewart ends up with a yellow ring, he and Hal must work together to confront the being who destroyed the original Green Lantern Corps–the last surviving Guardian.
Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman feature two of the most famous DC characters, Hal Jordan and John Stewart, like you’ve never seen them before!
