    Your statement has almost no bearing in what actually happened.

    Well I should hope so. My statement didn't do anything to affect GL.

    This is an absolute gut-punch for me and not the sort of news I wanted to wake up to this morning, particularly since I've found Johns' GL to be stronger than it's been in some time.

    Whoever steps in has impossibly large boots to fill. Worse still, I really do fear for the worst given that DC's current talent pool just isn't that deep (which is why they've lately been hiring indie writers by the dozen, hoping that at least a couple will stick).

    The only people I'd have any interest in seeing on Green Lantern after Johns are Snyder or Morrison...and Morrison's basically done with ongoing work at DC and Snyder's plate is full. I fear for the worst.

    Well, time to drop GL (when GJ leaves in May) and start catching up on Aquaman.

    It's unclear to me, will Johns finish the First Lantern arc before he goes?

    I want to say yes, given Johns' talk of it being the right time to leave and that he "hopes it pays off everything we've ever done and ever created with Green Lantern." Can't really say that if he leaves with his final story just dangling in the air.

    A successful one too, for the most part.

    I hope this creative shift gives him new focus & bears strong results.

    When he's on form, he's very good indeed.

    Agreed. When he introduced Baz IMO it was a real indication that he should move on. He's produced some great GL comics, and hope that he leaves on a high note (and Hal comes back to stay!)

    On another note, Mahnke kicks royal butt. What an amazing illustrator.

    Wait, is he leaving GL so that he'll have enough time to be the new pope?

    Replacements I'd like to see:

    Grant Morrison
    China Mieville
    Joe Kelly
    Mike Carey
    Josh Fialkov
    Matt Kindt
    Si Spurrier

    Any of those would be quite wonderful. I'll not be surprised of it is Venditti, as someone else mentioned, who has something big in the works supposedly, but I will be disappointed as his sci-fi work on X-O hasn't wowed me in the least.

    Awful news, as far as I'm concerned.

    And, of course, if he's back healthy and capable of writing two books a month, Kurt Busiek.

    None of them seem likely. Fialkov maybe. Lemire if he is leaving Animal Man.

    Knowing DC, Tomasi or Bedard have a better shot than someone fresh like these guys.

    Tomasi's a great GL writer. I enjoyed his GL stories. Farewell, GJ :( Will miss you.

    This...I...Johns was the only reason I came to give a dang about Green Lantern. His run, and guiding of the mythos has made GL for me. This sucks. I'll be dropping GL when Johns leaves. It was a great run Geoff.

    I absolutely loved Geoff's run on GL, almost as much as his run on the Flash. But I have to say...

    Anyone concerned about the lack of Sinestro on that cover image?
