DC has announced the new creative teams for the GL books:

Green Lantern = Robert Venditti (writer) and Billy Tan (art)
GL Corps = Joshua Hale Fialkov (writer) and Bernard Chang (art)
New Guardians = Justin Jordan (writer) and Brad Walker (art)
Red Lanterns = Joshua Hale Fialkov (writer) and Alessandro Vitti (art)

Additionally, the GL family is getting a fifth book, focused on Larfleeze, by Keith Giffen and Scott Kolins.


It's been confirmed then...I'm off of Green Lantern.

EDIT: Side note on what books would get canned. New Guardians is the second best selling GL book just above GL Corps. So not sure if that one is anywhere near being in the running for cancellation with Red Lanterns.



These new creative teams are actually really good. Venditti is doing killer work with XO Manowar at valiant. There he writes a solo character in a vast cosmic universe. Less about feelings, lots about fighting and adventure. Billy Tan is awesome too.

Fialkov made a fairly successful run happen in I, Vampire, when not many of those b-list characters have had much success. Chang isnt bad either.Fialkov will also be ready ready for the darker stuff that red lanterns bring because of the same reason above, his work on I, Vampire was dark.

Justin Jordan is also doing some great stuff with Shadownman at Valiant. Shadowman shares many qualities with Kyle, so its not a huge leap. Walker can be a kick ass artist when he wants to.

Agreed. I'm okay with the other teams, but I have no interested in the book, especially after seeing their work in the Larfleeze backup story in Threshold #1.
