DC has delayed the upcoming middle-grade original graphic novel Green Lantern: Alliance. The OGN, a sequel to 2020's Green Lantern: Legacy (opens in new tab), has been pushed back six months with a new release date of October 18.(opens in new tab)
DC has taken the additional step of canceling all current pre-orders from comic shops and bookstores and intends to re-solicit the book later this year.
The book is the second of a series of OGNs by writer Minh Lê and artist Andie Tong, offering a young adult take on DC's Green Lantern franchise - centered on a new second-generation Green Lantern wearer, Tai Pham. Green Lantern: Legacy was the origin story for Tai Pham, including his induction into the Green Lantern pantheon of heroes and his first super-villain face-off. Pham was eventually introduced into the main DC continuity with an appearance in The Green Lantern: Season Two #11.
In Green Lantern: Alliance, Tai Pham will grow as a superhero as he begins to become a fixture in Coast City. As he balances his superhero career with his schooling and a day job, he'll also be participating in his first superhero team-up - with Kid Flash.
