Green Lantern is the latest DC hero to join the company's line of origin-revamping original graphic novels.
Announced via IGN today, the wife-and-husband pair of writer Corinna Bechko and writer/artist Gabriel Hardman will team up with colorist Jordan Boyd to bring Green Lantern into the Earth One-Verse. The book will see Hal Jordan revamped as a scientist and astronaut who finds a power ring and sets off to restore the Green Lantern Corps, which were long-ago extinguished by The Manhunters.
"Having storyboarded Interstellar, this is an approach I'm comfortable with and have wanted to explore in comics," said Hardman, subtly bragging about his movie work. "Realistic sci-fi is only the beginning of this story; we have something much more epic in store."
The book is set to hit stores on March 20, 2018, and Hardman promises:
Our GREEN LANTERN: EARTH ONE book will be in stores March 20, 2018. Since it's already nearly done, I'm confident it won't be late.

Famous last words, Hardman.
