Geoff Johns will still helm “Green Lantern” after relaunch
The DC Source blog and the Associated Press report that Geoff Johns, DC Comics’ chief creative officer, will remain at the helm of the “Green Lantern” title when the title is relaunched in September.
“It’s building off the Green Lantern stories I’ve done since ‘Rebirth,’” he told The Associated Press about the series, which is set to start in September and features art by Doug Mahnke and Christian Alamy. “Taking it in a very new direction that we’ve never seen in ‘Green Lantern’ before.”
The character of Green Lantern will be featured in the Ryan Reynolds movie opening June 17. Johns, who was heavily involved with the Green Lantern film, may have an opportunity to snare new fans of the character with this relaunch.
Three other Green Lantern books will launch in September:
“Green Lantern: The New Guardians,” starring Kyle Rayner. That’s written by Tony Bedard and illustrated by Tyler Kirkham and Batt.
“Red Lanterns,” featuring Atrocitus and his fellow Red Lantern Corps members. It’s written by Peter Milligan with art by Ed Benes and Rob Hunter.
“Green Lantern Corps,” featuring Guy Gardner and John Stewart. It’s written by Peter J. Tomasi and illustrated by Fernando Pasarin and Scott Hanna.
Johns hasn’t revealed exactly where Hal Jordan will be in all of this, though Jordan is part of the relaunched “Justice League” that Johns is also writing.
