Far Sector #1

On the far edge of the known universe a new Green Lantern looks to solve the first major crime in the City Enduring in the last 500 years. Far Sector #1 introduces readers to rookie Lantern Sojourner Mullein who although green (forgive the pun) is the metropolis' best chance of solving a crime they have no experience with.

The story has a strong sci-fi premise with more than a whiff of Isaac Asimov. The setting is a vast metropolis that houses three separate races of aliens who have removed emotion from the equation (after tempers last led to the destruction of several worlds).

The design of Mullein works well, and she's obviously got a good head on her shoulders (and perhaps a few secrets of her own?). For a comic without the words Green Lantern in its title, this is the most promising Green Lantern story I've read in quite some time (and the art by Jamal Campbell ain't too shabby either). Worth a look.
