Powering Up Their Rings
♦ It’s been doing the rounds as rumours the last few months but yesterday it was confirmed that DC will be relaunching Green Lantern with #1, with Grant Morrison writing and Liam Sharp drawing. It’s now called The Green Lantern and here’s the details from IGN…
DC Comics are relaunching The Green Lantern comic series this November with acclaimed writer Grant Morrison (Batman, All-Star Superman) and artist Liam Sharp (The Brave and the Bold: Batman and Wonder Woman) taking lead hero Hal Jordan back to his classic roots.
“Instead of the big, epic, 12-part stories, we’re focusing down on the everyday life of a space cop. Basically, it’s no more apocalypse-ending storylines,” Morrison told IGN over a phone interview along with Sharp. “The basic concept is that [Hal Jordan] is like a space cop that patrols a sector of the universe where anything can happen. We’ve made it more like a police procedural.”
IGN also ran preview pages so here they are including a cover image, all drawn by Liam Sharp
