N.K. Jemisin is trying her hand at comic books! The Brooklyn-based “speculative fiction” writer who has won multiple Hugo Awards for her Broken Earth trilogy is taking the lead on Far Sector, a new series which will be published on the DC Comics imprint, Young Animal.

N.K. Jemisin

Far Sector is a story about Sojourner “Jo” Mullein, the Green Lantern charged with the protection of the City Enduring, “a sprawling megalopolis where billions of people all live in relative peace because the city’s residents have been made not to feel emotions.” Without emotions, crime is less of a problem for the Green Lantern Corps, but when feelings reemerge in the city, so does the violence, among other things.

Far Sector is set for release later this year.
