Geoff Johns is stepping down from writing Green Lantern, the comic book series that he has written since 2004 and is credited with reviving into a full blown franchise at the publisher, with a number of ongoing series, events such as the Sinestro Wars and Blackest Night and even inspiring the move into a cinema version.

Issue 20 in May will be his final issue and, drawn by Doug Mahnke, will be an 64 page issue. He’ll continue to write Aquaman and will co-write Justice League with Jeff Lemire it seems.

Exoect ot to be quite a topic of conversation in North Carolina though…
