Riffing With Creators: ‘Green Lantern’ writer-producer GEOFF JOHNS waxes rhapsodic about Hollywood, Hal Jordan and his brightest days – Comic Riffs – The Washington Post

Johns has already finished his final Green Lantern book before the title is renumbered. He shares some details that Comic Riffs isn’t at liberty to repeat, but suffice to say: Johns the storyteller, even in several sentences to describe this “last Lantern,” beguiles with his soliloquy.

New Statesman – Alan Moore: “I’ve disproved the existence of death”

Then there’s chapter 29, composed in the form of a stage play by Samuel Beckett, based around one of the times the playwright visited Northampton to take part in a cricket match. (I’m not making this up: the 1925 and 1926 matches appear in Wisden, which records that Beckett was “a useful, left-arm, medium-pace bowler”.) While his team-mates took off in the evenings to patronise the city’s pubs and prostitutes, Beckett decided instead to go on a “church crawl”. It is this event that Moore is restaging.

Apart from these literary jeux d’esprit, the main thrust of the book explores Moore’s belief that time doesn’t work the way we think it does. “I’ve come to think that the universe is a four-dimensional site in which nothing is changing and nothing is moving. The only thing that is moving along the time axis is our consciousness. The past is still there, the future has always been here. Every moment that has existed or will ever exist is all part of this giant hyper-moment of space-time.”
