N.K. Jemisin, the acclaimed, award-winning author of The Broken Earth and Inheritance science fiction trilogies, makes her comic book debut with bestselling Naomi artist Jamal Campbell as they thrust you into a stunning sci-fi murder mystery on the other side of the universe!For the past six months, newly chosen Green Lantern Sojourner "Jo" Mullein has been protecting the City Enduring, a massive metropolis of 20 billion people. The city has maintained peace for over 500 years by stripping its citizens of their ability to feel. As a result, violent crime is virtually unheard of, and murder is nonexistent.But that's all about to change in this new maxiseries that gives a DC Young Animal spin to the legacy of the Green Lanterns!

- January 1, 1970Bodhisattva ChattopadhyayN K Jemisin's writes the new Green Lantern, Sojourner "Jo" Mullein. Fast paced and enjoyable storyline, but for someone like me interested in future cities in SF, it's the City Enduring that is endlessly fascinating and the main draw! Can't wait for the next issue!more
- January 1, 1970Chris ThompsonA solid start. I think this will get better as we get to know the world, story, and characters more. It has a little bit of a learning curve on those fronts, and it might read better as a whole than in parts. Well-written with slick art.
- January 1, 1970Danny ZangOne of my favorite #1 issues in a long time. Not quite as much in the way of individual character motivations as I would have liked to see, but the worldbuilding around this new world was so well laid out. This hits all the marks for a great science fiction tale in the making and has the benefit of having Jamal Campbell's gorgeous artwork to bring it to life.more
- January 1, 1970Sean KottkePromising start; I hope the publication schedule follows a brisk pace and doesn't get bogged down in delays like "Doomsday Clock." Issue #1 is a straightforward set up for a murder mystery, with a healthy chunk of world-building. Jemisin is a master at creating coherent, complex worlds, so I feel in good hands. I probably could have waited until all the issues were out in trade, but I just wanted to engage right away.more
- January 1, 1970Roman ColomboThere is soooooo much happening in this one issue, and it's easy to see that a novelist is writing. So much plot! All of the PLOT! But it's good. So yeah, one of my favorite writers is writing a Green lantern book for Young Animal. I'm very excited.
