Hal Jordan and John Stewart team up to save the last Green Lantern Guardian from an evil force!

The Earth One universe of hardcover books from DC Comics have been a real treat and new installments definitely get a lot of attention.

The second volume for the Green Lantern Earth One line is coming up on July 28th, 2020 and it features a fantastic team with Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman. The publisher is now showing off a couple of character panels and a look at where they stand within the storyline as it takes place three years after the events of the first volume where Hal is joined by several Green Lanterns to deal with the threat of the Yellow Lanterns.

“Jordan has re-assimilated into Earth culture on a lunar base, working as a consultant designing a privately funded spacecraft in hope of connecting Earth with the wider galaxy. In the last three years he has struggled with how he can help avert problems on Earth without falling prey to politics or creating unintended problems while still doing everything he can to protect his home planet and try to foster a brighter future.”
“An Earth physicist working on propulsion systems for spacecraft, he jumped at the opportunity to study an alien craft first-hand when a Llaran vessel visited the Sol system. Too bad he was on board when an intergalactic incident broke out. He’s relentlessly curious about his chosen discipline, with a deep understanding of the physics behind energy as it applies to space travel. This gives him the ability to recognize that the Yellow energy is not from our dimension. And meeting Arisia gives him a reason to use it as a force for good.”
“As the most accomplished of the Green Lanterns, her skills are unquestioned. It’s her management style that chaffs some of the Green Lanterns. Or is it just that a collection of individuals always has a hard time becoming a true community? Either way, it’s lonely trying to lead. Fortunately, she may have found a kindred spirit when she meets Stewart.”

Plot Concept: 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.
