About this deal

There was a lot of diversity in the humanoid characters as well and it was so nice to see characters that look like me. Murders can be committed for consolidating power, for profit, and in the case of psychopaths, for no reason at all, so it seems to be a bit unbelievable that merely turning off emotions would eliminate murder.

Although it limited their ability to create entertainment, the Exploit prevented them from making rash and destructive decisions. 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.

Jemisin does it all justice and I think having a maxi-series with a single character is a model for the future of comics. The three species initially lived on two separate planets until the Burnover, when they destroyed their homeworlds during a war sparked by the Cloud Kratocracy (an empire of powerful alien conquerors that the three species drove to extinction). Canhaz then tells her that the Feelsnet is used for the exchange of illegal or scarce content, particularly memes made by residents of the City. Character development is also strong: Jo grows to love the city and its people, and has to choose whom to trust.

Also I like how the author explores the past of Jo and how it informs her present and the way she was chosen by a guardian was fun and does also show how she is different from other earth GLs and also being very loud mouth and compassionate, that was a fun addition and I can't wait to read more of her stuff in future GL comics. I also did not have any prior knowledge of Green Lanterns, so I was very slow to realize things that longtime comics fans would have understood intuitively about who this character was, and why she was different but also placed into a long lineage of lanterns. It’s the resonance with the actual world, the actual feelings, the issues that can and do happen — but shown through the prism of different setting, different perception, frequently inverting perspectives and giving new sharp unexpected angles to old issues.Should be said, I’ve never been a Green Lantern fan but this storyline/ trade compilation is outstanding and did not let me down. Jemisin is a Brooklyn author who won the Hugo Award for Best Novel for The Fifth Season, which was also a New York Times Notable Book of 2015. I know in polarized time, a bisexual black woman GL might not for everyone but I loved this series and can only hope we get another case in Farsector. The Trilogy Council consists of one member of each species; they are elected by their respective species, their position is lifelong, and their power is unrestricted. This leads Jo to remember her life on Earth where she joined the army and then the police force in an attempt to make the world a fairer place.

I can't really fault Jemisin or Jamal Campbell in this case - it's extremely hard to tell a story with emotionless characters. When interrogated, the suspects reveal that they had little knowledge of the details behind their job. Her novels have also been nominated for (collectively) the Hugo, the Nebula, the Tiptree, the Crawford, the Gemmell, the. Why did the Council send for a Green Lantern anyway when the crooks in charge could get away with their crimes easier without their interference? She previously won the Locus Award for her first novel, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, and her short fiction and novels have been nominated multiple times for Hugo, World Fantasy, and Nebula awards, and shortlisted for the Crawford and the James Tiptree, Jr.Jo is a well-written and ever-growing character throughout this entire thing, and I genuinely don’t think I’ve ever liked another GL as much as her. It's a hefty pile on this story's plate, but I think Jemisin does a pretty good job of fulfilling most of her promises while also making a satisfying intro to a new world and character.
