Grant Morrison has made an indelible mark on such characters as the Doom Patrol and Batman. Now, he brings his unique, trippy vision to Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps. You can read all about in ComicsVerse’s exclusive preview of THE GREEN LANTERN #1, courtesy of DC Entertainment!

Fans of Morrison have been clamoring for this new series ever since it was announced in July. Morrison has become one of the biggest DC writers for seminal run after seminal run on so many books, from ANIMAL MAN to ACTION COMICS. With THE GREEN LANTERN #1, we get to see Morrison venture to outer space and tell tales of everyone’s favorite green-hued intergalactic police officer.

Another Day, Another Arrest in THE GREEN LANTERN #1

Hal Jordan may be the focus of THE GREEN LANTERN #1, along with the series itself, but this preview doesn’t even include him! Rather, it shows the Guardians of the Universe checking in on an alien Lantern named Maxim Tox and his allies. Right away, the Morrison brand of bizarre comedy is on display.

As Tox fights a Spider-Pirate, some gawking witnesses take bets on who will win: Tox or the, apparently, vegan spider. Why is the spider vegan? Who knows?! But it doesn’t matter, it’s some great, humorous worldbuilding. It almost feels like something out of 2000 AD or HEAVY METAL magazine, which Morrison is the editor of.

The preview also shows a very Morrison-esque new character, Floozle Flem. Flem is a super-intelligent virus, who’s also a Green Lantern. It’s a brilliant idea for a character that only someone like Morrison could come up with. Flem takes down the Spider-Pirate, who becomes violently ill from Flem’s attack.

The rest of the issue will focus on Jordan investigating a conspiracy within the Green Lantern Corps. Apparently, he uncovers a traitor in the Corps’ ranks as well.

The creative team on this book is Grant Morrison, Liam Sharp, and Steve Oliff. Get your first peek at the intergalactic craziness with our exclusive pages of THE GREEN LANTERN #1, out this Wednesday, November 7th!
