Creator Changes in the GREEN LANTERN Comics [Update]

Josh Fialkov leaves two titles and find out who is replacing him.

Today's been a crazy day in several ways. Earlier we heard about the upcoming creative changes in ACTION COMICS. By now you've probably also heard the news about Joshua Hale Fialkov.

Word got out on the internet that Fialkov was also leaving GREEN LANTERN CORPS and RED LANTERNS. As we waited for an official statement, Fialkov finally posted on his own website:

Hey guys,
Just a quick note to confirm what everyone knows, I am no longer the writer of GLC and Red Lanterns for DC Comics. There were editorial decisions about the direction of the book that conflicted with the story I was hired to tell, and I felt that it was better to let DC tell their story the way they want. I’m grateful for the opportunity and I’ll miss working with the entire Green Lantern team.

This was not an easy decision to make emotionally or financially, but, I’m sure it was the right decision for both me, and for the Green Lantern books. The outpouring of support, your kind words and well wishes means so much to me and my family.

In the meantime, I’ll be writing ALPHA: BIG TIME and THE ULTIMATES over at Marvel, and THE DEVILLERS at Dynamite. I’ve got a couple more projects in the works, so stay tuned.

Thanks again,

Who will replace him on these two titles? CBR posted that Van Jensen (PINOCCHIO VAMPIRE SLAYER) will take over GREEN LANTERN CORPS, with Robert Venditti co-plotting. Charles Soule (SWAMP THING) will take on RED LANTERNS.
