I’ve rarely been as excited about an upcoming comic as I am about Far Sector, from the Young Animal division of DC Comics.
One, it’s written by multi-Hugo Award-winning author N.K.Jemisin with the talented Jamal Campbell on art, and two, it’s basically in its own space away from DC continuity, allowing the creators the freedom to portray this new character and her world as they wish.
IWhat’s it about? DC describes Far Sector in the press release but the best answer to that is to look at the preview pages below for yourself.
Welcome to Far Sector!
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 Far Sector, a stunning, mind-bending, sci-fi mystery on the other side of the DC 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 adds a new chapter to the legacy of the Green Lanterns! DC’s Far Sector #1 will carry an Ages 17+ content descriptor (for mature readers) and will retail for $3.99.
