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. The city has maintained peace for over 500 years by stripping its citizens of their ability to feel. As a result, violent crime is virtually unheard of, and murder is nonexistent.
But that’s all about to change in this new graphic novel that gives a DC’s Young Animal spin to the legacy of the Green Lanterns!
Collects Far Sector issues #1-12.

An Interview with N.K. Jemisin and Jamal Campbell on Far Sector
What do you love about Jo, and exploring the world of Far Sectorthrough her?
N.K. Jemisin: I like that she’s a stranger in a strange land—operating outside of the normal jurisdiction of Green Lanterns, without anyone to call for help, in a city full of people who in many cases resemble humans, but who can be deeply, frighteningly alien. Settings like this are a perfect way to mirror and explore the human condition.
Jamal Campbell: Creating a new hero and a new world, in the DC Universe, starring in their own title book, is the opportunity of a lifetime—and I’ve somehow been put in the position to do it twice (Naomi), back-to-back? It’s wild, and a bit overwhelming. I’m just happy to be in this moment of pure creation where I can put out my best work.
How did you develop the City Enduring’s location and culture?
N.K. Jemisin: I got contacted by Gerard Way, who had an idea for a Green Lantern book in which the protagonist would be alone, in a distant sector of space, embedded in a futuristic society. The idea was so intriguing that details pretty much sprung into my head, and I started putting together the City Enduring.
Jamal Campbell: There were a number of touchstones that I wanted to hit. First, the City being this gargantuan megalopolis built around a star, is such a cool and intriguing concept just on its own. Secondly, it’s a city that never ends. It’s sprawling and vast, yet so dense and claustrophobic that wherever you look, you have to feel tiny and a bit lost. Lastly, there’s the inhabitants of the city, and how the peoples interact and live amongst one another, and developed as a society.
