Green Lantern: Legacy Gets a Trailer

Thirteen-year-old Tai Pham lives in the apartment above his grandmother’s store in a room crammed with sketchpads and comic books. Tai’s youthful imagination cannot prepare him for the world he is thrown into. He must overcome his greatest obstacle in order to keep his grandmother’s legacy alive: fear.

When Tai inherits his grandmother’s jade ring, he soon finds out it’s more than it appears. Suddenly, he is inducted into a group of space cops known as the Green Lanterns, and every time he puts pen to paper, he is forced to confront his insecurity that he might not be creative or strong enough to uphold his bá’s legacy. Tai must decide what kind of hero he wants to be: Will he learn to soar above his insecurities, or will the past keep him grounded?

Green Lantern: Legacy is written by Minh Lê, with art by Andie Tong, colored by Sarah Stern, and lettering by Ariana Maher.
