Green Lantern: Legacy
There has been a growing trend of Marvel and DC getting into the teen/young adult market with graphic novels, where things are not too complicated and feature stories with kids the readers’ own age, so the kids can identify with the main character and keep reading comics, as that can be the age when they fall out of it. This book is a fairly simple story about the legacy of one’s family and honoring that legacy, no matter if a seemingly better offer comes up. Tai Pham lives in an apartment with his family above their grocery store. He dreams of a better life for himself, with racial hatred a thing of the past. What he does not know is that his grandmother was a Green Lantern, and she passes the legacy onto him. Pham must learn to control this new power and to use it for good, while an offer from a friend turns out to be a red herring.
This is more for the younger readers, as it really breaks down who is good and who is bad. While leaving a little bit for a gray area, with overly philosophical argument towards the end with the bad guy.
