Green Lantern Earth One, Volume 2 has had its release date shifted due to publishing schedules being pushed back as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The hardcover graphic novel was originally set for a June 9, 2020 release date. Co-creator Gabriel Hardman tweeted out that the new release date is now August 11th. The book is already available for pre-order from Amazon.
The first volume was nominated for an Eisner and DC invited the creative team of Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman back for a second offering. 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!
