There doesn’t seem to be much of a learning curve for Green Lanterns these days. At least, if Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz’s experiences are any indication. It’s been a little less than a year since Hal Jordan fused their two power batteries together in a bid to force the rookie Lanterns to work together. So far, it seems to have worked.
Even on their most routine days, the Green Lantern Corps don’t exactly have a job anyone could classify as easy, but lately things have been pretty complicated, even by their standards. Between rogue governments, dying universes, parasitic rings from alternate earths and renegade agents of Apokolips, the recent history of the Corps and its members can seem a little tricky to navigate.
Sam Humphries has made a name for himself in sci-fi comics, but he’s brand new to DC and the world of the Green Lanterns. But that’s okay, so are his two heroes.
Today marks the release of GREEN LANTERN #0. As eagerly anticipated as it is mysterious, the issue launches a brand new chapter in Green Lantern history by introducing a new Earth-born ring bearer: Simon Baz.
