Green Lantern Season 2 Series Spoils Ending To Green Lantern: Blackstars Series?
Solicitation, cover and teasers below.
“We know each other’s strengths now,” [writer Grant] Morrison tells EW. “I know what [artist] Liam [Sharp] can do, so it’s seeing how far to the limits I can push that. For me it’s a great book because if we were doing Spider-Man we’re stuck in New York, with the Daily Bugle and the supporting cast. With Green Lantern you can go anywhere. It’s like Doctor Who where we can go anywhere in space or time, the future or past, alien planets. It’s wide open for just continually surprising yourself and coming up with novel ways to do it…”
“…The first issue is about Hal Jordan going in search of replacements for the Guardians of the Universe,” Morrison says. “It ties into all the big stuff that’s happening in the DC Universe next year, so there’s a little bit of that but the fun was ‘let’s mess up the status quo.’ It’s a little bit like PC Principal from South Park, where suddenly everything’s changed at the top. These are new Guardians with very different ideas of what’s right and wrong. Instead of Hal butting heads with these geriatric space dudes that he always had problems with, where he was the young cocky guy and they were the old heads, suddenly we have Young Guardians. It’s also having a little bit of fun with this ‘ok boomer’ thing…”
“…It’s a convention for the lawmen on Oa. Liam’s made up about half of them, some of them are from old Batman books or ancient Adam Strange stories,” Morrison explains. “We’ve tried to find every guy who’s been a space cop in DC history. It’s great because they all fit in, even the ones designed by Dick Sprang, because they’re all aliens. Even goofy ‘50s alien designs look like, well on that planet that’s what they wear! They all seem integrated into that world. That has been one of the great things, to consolidate that whole DC space universe and put in characters that haven’t been seen in decades. I’ll describe who’s talking to who and who’s in the room, or as many as I can think of, and then Liam just populates it and gives them all something to do.”
…Sharp adds, “in a way it’s not that Hal Jordan is a superhero amongst humans, he’s a superhero amongst Green Lanterns. Whether he’s our favorite Green Lantern or not, it’s established in the tomes of Green Lantern lore that he’s the greatest Green Lantern of all time. You go to the future, they’re still talking about Hal Jordan. We’re in the midst of telling the story of the greatest Green Lantern of them all. That’s amazing, to show what that means.”
