Green Lantern: Legacy

Author Minh Le
Illustrated by Andie Tong
From Minh Lê, award-winning author of Drawn Together and Let Me Finish! comes the tale of a new hero!

Thirteen-year-old Tai Pham lives in the apartment above his grandmother's store, where his bedroom is crammed with sketchpads and comic books. But not even his most imaginative drawings could compare to the colorful adventure he's about to embark on.

When Tai inherits his grandmother's jade ring, he soon finds out it's more than just a piece of jewelry. Suddenly he's inducted into a group of space cops known as the Green Lanterns. He is about to learn that being a superhero takes more than just a ring. Does Tai have the willpower and the imagination to uphold his ba's legacy.

A first-generation Vietnamese-American, during the day Minh is a national early childhood policy expert who went to Dartmouth College and has a master's in education from Harvard University. Outside of spending time with his beautiful wife and sons in their home near Washington, D.C., Minh's favorite place to be is in the middle of a good book.

Andie Tong's past comic book and illustration experience include titles such as Spectacular Spider-Man UK, The Batman Strikes!, Tron: Betrayal, Plants Vs Zombies, Star Wars, Tekken and Stan Lee's Zodiac Legacy. Andie has also illustrated children's books for HarperCollins for over 10 years.
"Green Lantern: Legacy offers a well-paced adventure with thoughtful flourishes. The art is dynamic and detailed, with a luster highly appealing for its readership." —Booklist

"Brace yourself for a next-generation Green Lantern like you’ve never seen before. Written by Minh Lê, with art by Andie Tong, Green Lantern: Legacy's rich storyline seamlessly melds the past with the present to create a page-turner that will leave you breathless." —Lisa Yee, author of Stanford Wong Flunks Big-Time and the DC Super Hero Girls middle-grade novel series
