#1 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

DC writer Geoff Johns and host John Siuntres catch up with a big picture look at the characters and story arcs playing out in Action Comics, Justice Society Of America, Booster Gold and Green Lantern.

We'll discuss Geoff's takes on the multiple versions of Superman, the Legion of Super-Heroes, the new heroes and villains in the Sinestro Corps War, and finding a new purpose for Booster Gold.

You'll also hear Geoff's thoughts on the WGA strike and some never realized season 2 story ideas for the Blade TV series, including a plot featuring Marc Spector, Moon Knight.

Some other tidbits from the interview...

Johns has Green Lantern plotted through to issue #55, JSA to #25 or longer, and Action Comics - "if we stay the course, Gary [Frank] and I have two years of stories to tell."

On Green Lantern: "That book with its epic scope... to bring Hal Jordan to issue #50 has become a very personal story for me."

On Superman Prime: "He's absolutely one of my favorite characters to write. he's such a jerk (laughs)."

On the future : Johns and former Blade TV/JSA collaborator David Goyer have a new comic story idea they hope to release in early 2009.
