Far SectorFar Sector by N.K. Jemisin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

N.K. Jemisin is well known for her seemingly effortless ability to create realistic, complex, fully rendered worlds in her novels. That same ability is on full display here, in her first comic book series. Sojourner “Jo” Mullein is a human from contemporary Earth who, as the Green Lantern Corps’s newest recruit, is sent to a post in the farthest reaches of space, far from anyone who could help when things inevitably go wrong. Is she in over her head? Definitely, but Jemisin has created a strong, stubborn, and ultimately valiant hero in Jo, and it’s a joy to watch her come into her newfound power and rise to the occasion. Jamal Campbell’s artwork is exceptional, bringing the carefully constructed world of the City Enduring to vivid life. I really enjoyed this, and if FAR SECTOR continues past these 12 issues, I can’t wait to read more!
