Writer Minh Lê Shares A Sneak Peek Of YA-Focused Green Lantern: Legacy 

Recently, DC Comics announced Zoom and Ink, two imprints focused on putting out books for junior high school aged readers and young adult readers. Now, author Minh Lê of the upcoming DC Zoom book Green Lantern: Legacy has given a glimpse at an entirely new Green Lantern.

That new Lantern is Tai, a 13-year-old who finds himself in possession of his grandmother's "jade ring" after she passes away. Only, of course, that's no jade ring at all: It's a Green Lantern Ring. Tai's grandmother was a hero, and now he has to carry the mantle himself.

At this time, Lê, author of Let Me Finish! and Drawn Together for Disney Hyperion Books, said that he couldn't presently reveal the artist responsible for the concept art shared above (presumably the artist of the book, as well). But he did share a delightful personal connection to the work: The premise is based on his own grandmother, who wore her own jade ring, and his other grandmother, who gave him a jade ring of his own 20 years ago.

That's adorable.



    The best part about the new publications is that this can happen naturally without fucking up the current core titles and then if said characters gain popularity they can find a way to roll them into the main continuity.

    I doubt this can beat what Marvel did with Nova, such a good run.

    WTH? Why would the Green Lantern Corps admit a child?
