Green Into Black: Geoff Johns on the Night to Come

Posted in blackest night,News by mrread7 on March 17, 2009

That’s what Green Lantern writer Geoff Johns told Newsarama the last time we talked to him about the title, and sure enough, the battles have begun. Emotion-charged aliens donning rings of red, blue, yellow and violet are all getting involved in the melee as the story builds toward this summer’s DC event, Blackest Night.

And with next month’s Green Lantern #39, Johns begins the much-anticipated introduction to the Orange Lanterns and their leader, “Agent Orange,” a vile, greed-twisted creature named Larfleeze (whom Johns has already called one of his favorite characters). Featuring art by Philip Tan, the storyline is the final one before the Blackest Night event begins in July.

For today’s “green theme” in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, we talked to Johns about the Agent Orange storyline, the many corps flying around the title now, and what the status is on Blackest Night.
