Check out the changes in the upcoming GL books!
If you're a DC fan and you are looking forward to the upcoming release of Brightest Day this April, then I imagine that you would want nothing more than to finish up the weekend on a high note, with some Green Lantern news! Just as the Blackest Night story arc touched on a variety of different titles, so will Brightest Day. But I am sure you all knew that already. Earlier today, DC revealed the upcoming creative teams that will be working on the GL books that are affected by the new story arc, including Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps. According to the announcement, writer Tony Bedard ( R.E.B.E.L.S.) will be taking over the starting this spring and the book will revolve around GL's Kyle Rayner, John Stewart and Ganthet.
“This is far and away the most exciting gig of my career. When they called to offer me the job and Geoff literally said, ‘Welcome to the Green Lantern Corps’ I felt like I’d put on a power ring. Now I just have to play up to Pete Tomasi’s impossibly high standards–!“
If you read R.E.B.E.L.S. then you probably have a good idea of whether or not Bedard can do a good job taking over for Peter Tomasi who has a long resume at DC. However, don't think Tomasi is leaving the GL Corps just yet! In addition to this announcement, DC also revealed that they will be launching a new title, Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors, which will be penned by Tomasi and penciled by artist Fernando Pasarin ( Justice Society of America) and will be highlighting the adventures of Guy Gardner. Could Brightest Day bring back Fire and Ice to this book? I guess we will have to see! Are you guys looking forward to this announcement? What do you think all the shifting within the GL books means? What is the bigger picture?
