Next month, get ready to welcome the New Guardians.

Beginning with issue #21, GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS will come to you from writer Justin Jordan and artist Brad Walker. And today, we’re giving you a first look at this fan-favorite series’ new direction by showing you some of Walker’s stunning artwork!

So where will GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS pick up following the shattering events of “Wrath of The First Lantern”?

“Kyle is asked to do something in New Guardians which will form what New Guardians, under my run, is about,” Jordan recently told NEWSARAMA. “Something that he is really, really ambivalent about. And ambivalent might be putting it mildly. He's asked to do something that hurts him a lot because of the stuff that happened to him during "First Lantern," because of the betrayals that he feels that he suffered. And since his powers are related to his emotions, mastering that is one of the things he has to do. And it's an ongoing problem, doing what he's been asked to do while trying to keep his emotions and feelings about that in check.”

As for the Templar Guardians shown in the preview pages in the gallery above?

“I can tell you there is a reason for the book to be called ‘new guardians,’” Jordan teased to COMIC VINE. “I can also tell you somebody else from Earth will be a supporting character in the book.”
