    Tai Pham's grandma is a tough old lady living a double life. What will happen when Tai inherits her strange jade ring...? My son's birth in August has had me keeping my eyes out for comics I might thrust upon him once he's old enough to read. I saw an article about Gr...

    This YA version of Green Lantern is good. It?s a bit obvious but then it?s aimed at 12-year-olds, so you can?t really expect narrative complexity from kid stories. Like Ms. Marvel focusing on a Pakistani-American teen, this is about a 13-year-old first-generation Vietnamese-Ameri...

    Minh Le is a great author, and that's why I picked this book up. I'm not a big superhero book reader, but I enjoyed Green Lantern: Legacy. As an adult, I knew the twist immediately, but youth won't necessarily think that it was too obvious. The artwork was great, too. ...

    Green Lantern has been around since the Golden Age of super heroes. I grew up with the Silver Age heroes, and it wasn't until recently that we got any diversity amongst any of these said heroes. Oh, we would sometimes get some people of color, but they were often side kicks. So...

    My knowledge of the Green Lantern universe is extremely limited, so this book was perfect for a newbie like me. The Green Lantern Corps are neatly introduced, as is the Green Lantern power set and those villainous Yellow Lanterns. Plus, the young, new Lantern is primarily tasked with s...

    Green Lantern is one of the few ?main? superheroes I don?t know much about so Green Lantern Legacy was such a treat! Though I am not as familiar, I do have some sense of the Lantern universe. I appreciate how close this story stayed to the original universe. This might be my fav ...

    Green Lantern Legacy is another graphic novel for the YA line in DC. This might be the first I've read and I can see why it's so popular, even if it's not aimed for me. This is the story of Tai and how he becomes a Green Lantern. Through his grandmother, he learns wh...

    I liked this one a lot. Green Lantern is one of the super heroes I don't know a whole lot about, and this was a good introduction to that world, as well as another good story about kids not being weak. I liked this one a lot. Green Lantern is one of the super heroes I don't kn...

    THE ART IS SO AMAZING?!?!?!? also love how its focusing on a southeast asia setting - DC needs to have more of these! however, the story was quite predictable + halfway through it gets a bit confusing. would be recommending more if people are looking for some good art > plot. st...

    My interest in the Vietnamese American protagonist and his grandmother could not offset the dull, abbreviated, and obvious storytelling. And yet another Earth-based Green Lantern? What's the headcount nowadays? And instead of another American male, I really would have loved it ...

    Tai is a Vietnamese-American living in Coast City with his multigenerational family. He inherits a Green Lantern ring and all that entails. The art is vivid and bright and full of that signature green. Tai, his friends, and his Grandmother are all well-rounded, fully developed characte...

    A triumph. This is my favorite DC Zoom! title so far. 'Green Lantern: Legacy' understands what a superhero story needs to be, while grounding it in a theme of legacy and acceptance, complete with honest characters. The artwork is a perfect match for the material as well. ...

    Hal Jordan is my favourite GL and yes this book is written with younger readers in mind, but I don't care I thought the book was great. I have noticed the more multicultural elements and people in comics. I always go back to Stan Lee's said. If you want multicultural char...

    This was a cute, wholesome comic. Although this falls under the "DC Graphic Novels for Kids" label, it has a pretty broad appeal. Just because something is made with kids in mind doesn't mean everyone else can't enjoy it. It's nice being able to pick up a bo...

    This was fantastic! I absolutely loved the genuine representation of Vietnamese culture. And it was beautifully illustrated. Once again, the downfall here was how short it was. It felt a lot like the first 2 issues of a series, like half a story. I would've loved to see this a...

    This one's probably my fav out of all dc ink/zoom graphic novels. The ending was a bit flat but i can overlook it because that artwork almost made it an official looking, full fledged comic book. This one's probably my fav out of all dc ink/zoom graphic novels. The ending was a...
