He's not actually writing comics anymore, last I checked. Green Lantern needs fresh blood from a truly great space operaticist, like Jim Starlin (praying). Oeming is good, Marz...oops, they're mostly Marvelites.

Starlin would be a dream come true for me, or Walt Simonson.

I wonder how Bendis would fair, though he's not always pristine with groups. Waid.

You didn't.

Oeming used to live in the town next to mine and went to my LCS (until he moved to the west coast). Cool dude. I got some of his Powers stuff signed.

Awesome! His Thor Disassembled is one of the best Marvel stories I've ever read, period.

Geoff Johns may not be writing, but he's clearly the mastermind behind the current Green Lantern status quo. There's a book dedicated to Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz, another with Hal Jordan at the forefront while every other main Lantern character is more or less screwed, and the prevalence of the Emotional Spectrum and Corps wars in both books. It's very obvious.

Besides, it was confirmed that he personally met with the writers and went over story ideas with them. And this whole "Rebirth" thing is his brainchild.

Oh look, a mention of "Starlit Crisis", the only good Green Lantern story I've read since Van Jensen's "Corps" run.

And hell NO I don't want Johns back. I want Johns to go AWAY. Maybe if he lost this horribly bad idea of an executive position and went to Marvel writing comics for awhile. Just...get him AWAY from DC, POST HASTE.

LOVED it!!! And after a second reading of DC: Rebirth, I'm on board.

I just...I got tired of the hero worship of Johns on Facebook (to name just one website). Too much sycophancy tends to turn me off the sycophant-ee. For me Johns was mostly GL Rebirth to Blackest Night (greatest Hal Jordan run ever imo), the idea that launched the amazing Flashpoint Paradox film (my favorite animated anything), Darkseid/Justice League, and Aquaman. The rest was mostly miss for me, especially Flash (granted, he stood in the towering shadow of the king, Mark Waid), and the post-Blackest Night, where he seemed to have just shot his wad and got steadily more boring.

But that's just my view, I did like Rise of the Third Army, though only a part of that was his.

His leaving behind comics writing has made me lose respect for him, to be completely honest. That's what he does best. Too bad he'll never give writing for Marvel a try, would love to see him tackle the Guardians, for example.

KilowogsDisciple,
Geoff Johns already wrote for Marvel. He did an Avengers run with them which was alright when he wasn't doing weird shit like this:

It's not likely he would go back because he's a DC stan at heart.

Argh. Well, best he's off Marvel then, thank you! Though I wonder if he lasted a short time just because he like, sucked.

He did a four part mini series for The Thing back in the day. Not bad.
