Oh yeah, it happened. Mainstream News Story? Big Time Comics Story? Smash them together and bam! It’s Gutters.
I like a lot of folks was pretty surprised when Geoff Johns announced he was leaving Green Lantern. The man made Hal cool again, but as with all good things, it must come to an end. So what’s next for DC’s Golden Boy?
Well, I have a theory…
Warner Bros has just apparently scrapped the latest Justice League movie script. Johns has some free time on his hands and is well known to the folks over on the movie side of things. Could we be setting the stage for Geoff Johns to write the Justice League movie?
I don’t know. I have nothing to back up any of that. But it’s a thought.
Finally today, I would not be doing my job if I didn’t tell you all to go out and read Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore’s Battle Pope. It’s the right thing to do.
Today’s Papal page comes to us from Rantz Hoseley:
Rantz Hoseley is a caffeine-swilling, profanity-spewing force of dark comic matter who’s been kicking around the comic industry since 1987. Having worked on everything from Phil Foglio’s “XXXenophile” to the OGN adaptation of Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad Poor Dad,” he was nominated in 2009 for the British Fantasy Award (which he didn’t win) The Eisner Award (which he did win), and the Harvey Award (also a win) for “Comic Book Tattoo.” For the last three years, Rantz has been working in the world of digital comics, & the “evolution of narratives in digital entertainment” with his company LongBox, Inc. Because he’s a firm believer in the powers of caffeine and scoffs at the notion that human beings need sleep, he’s also working on an OGN called “LIFT,” about a little-known skunkworks project at NASA in the 1950s.
Enjoy New Comics Day, friends! See you back here Friday!
