Big name writers from the prose world trying their hand at comics is nothing new. And while they may be great writers in their field, many quickly discover that writing comics requires a language all its own, one which - crucially - they themselves do not fully control. Comics are a collaborative effort, and the toughest trick that a prose writer must learn when adapting to comics is show don’t tell: knowing when to shut up and let the artist talk. Which brings us to Far Sector, and award-winning fantasy and science fiction author N. K. Jemisin. Along with artist Jamal Campbell, Jemisin has co-created one of the best new characters we’ve seen in superhero comics in the past decade. Sojourner “Jo” Mullein is a Green Lantern who has spent six months acting as the guardian of The City Enduring, an orbiting city state of 20 billion who have had their ability to feel removed, eliminating violent crime and murder for the past 500 years. But all that is about to change. Jemisin and Campbell give us the best kind of Green Lantern story: a space opera that’s by turns enjoyable romp, clever allegory and stirring drama. Fingers crossed we get to see a sequel someday!
