Well, that came a lot sooner than expected.
Just a little over a week since the announcement of the end of Geoff Johns’ groundbreaking “Green Lantern” run, along with the mass exodus of all Green Lantern family creative teams, DC has officially announced their new blood. Here are the new teams, revealed exclusively through MTV Geek:
Green Lantern – Written by Robert Venditti, Illustrated by Billy Tan
Green Lantern Corps – Written by Joshua Hale Fialkov, Illustrated by Bernard Chang
Green Lantern: New Guardians – Written by Justin Jordan, Illustrated by Brad Walker
Red Lanterns – Written by Joshua Hale Fialkov, Illustrated by Alessandro Vitti
Larfleeze – Written by Keith Giffen, Illustrated by Scott Kolins
As you can see, Bleeding Cool’s initial reports were right on target. All current Green Lantern titles remain, along with the new “Larfleeze” title, which will likely spin out of the back-up feature in “Threshold,” although it could also be possible that Larfleeze could take over the title entirely.
Overall, I’m very excited for these changes. Check back soon as more information comes to light and I go in-depth on my thoughts on the new creative teams.
