He's my favorite.  Met him in 2009 at one of my local comic stores when he was signing Blackest Night #1.

Never saw First Flight, but I'm pretty excited to see Emerald Knights.  Johns had me when he used the Star Wars bounty hunter analogy.

Excited for Flashpoint, though I would have liked for the new Flash series to have gotten a bit more of its legs underneath it before attempting a huge event comic.

Geoff almost said "yes" to a death. He said to her question "Ye...well errr...." to cover himself up.

The fact that Flashpoint is a Flash and Batman in a Brave and the Bold type story has me interested I do think there is something to people complaining Johns relies too much on mythology in stories but when it comes to a straight superhero story Johns is a master of so I'll be checking it out.

I'm here with Geoff Johns at WonderCon. The man who made Hal Jordan the mass murderer and pedophile great. Can I say that?

@Supreme Marvel: True, but you never know what'll happen, there's always the looming threat of editorial mandates on big crossover events, though i hope the death will be done with dignity

He retconned the interview. This never happened.

And it did, then. And it was twice as good the second time.

Fixed. If you used parentheses before, then it would have been okay. :)

Should I have said "The man who made Hal Jordan famous" instead?

@Babs: I love your interviews, but you guys really, really need to come up with a 'sign-off' at the end I think. You know, even if it's goofy or cheesy, just something to wrap it up before you cut. Anyway, great job :)

For all his retconning and his altering continuity to suit his books, I've rarely read anything by him that I hated (maybe I'm just not as stuck-up on continuity as most people here). Looking forward to Flashpoint.

Comic Vines coverage continues to be awesome. Too bad this interview wasn't as long as the others, but it was still really cool

I'd be looking forward to Flashpoint more if it didn't involve a million different comics. That list of expected Flashpoint publications made Blackest Night look like a fart in a hurricane by comparison.

I'll still end up buying it all though. D'oh!!

Maybe "The man who made Hal very well known." Because I still think Hal's a douche! Kyle for the win!!

How the hell did Geoff Johns do it? From an intern (by accident) to Richard Donner, to being a top writer for DC. And all and all, being pretty darn amazing at it! I am envious.
