Green Lantern Myrrt has been murdered, his partner is blaming herself for his death and threatening to quit the corps and Guy Gardner… well, he just needs a vacation.
As Dave Gibbons and Patrick Gleason’s Green Lantern Corps’ monthly series kicks off (on the heels of a successful six-issue limited series called Recharge), this ancient intergalactic police force has got a lot going on.
Rookie Lantern Soranik Natu, already tortured by the fact that the greatest villain in Corps history, Sinestro, was one of her people, now has to deal with the fact that Myrrt died while she wasn’t around to save him.
Now it’s up to Natu and Gardner, the toughest and certainly loudest Lantern around, to return to the planet Betrassus and figure out just what could kill a weilder of a power ring.
And then Guy can have his well-earned shore leave.
To Be A Lantern is a reverent and quick-paced revival of a tremendous legacy.
