So that's why the Green Lantern comics solicitations for May were delayed from last week.

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...
The Green Lantern books are the last remaining DC titles I read, so with Geoff Johns' leaving, seems like a good opportunity to finally drop them all. Johns did some great stuff over his run, and ever after the reboot it was nice that the GL books remained mostly untouched. Unfortunately, the New DCU has quickly caught up with GL, and the books have just turned to shit.
Still hats off to Mr. Johns for re-energizing this franchise, and for an overall stellar run by any account. Too bad he had to go out with a whimper than with a bang.
