Last week we heard the news that Geoff Johns was leaving GREEN LANTERN after nine years. As you may have heard, he's not the only one leaving. In fact, the entire line of Green Lantern family titles are seeing some changes with writers and artists. There's been speculation (and some fear) over who would be doing the honors. Now we have some answers.

MTV GEEK had the exclusive reveal on the new creative teams.

No Caption Provided

Are you ready for this?

GREEN LANTERN

Robert Venditti and Billy Tan

GREEN LANTERN CORPS

Joshua Hale Fialkov and Bernard Chang

GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS

Justin Jordan and Brad Walker

RED LANTERNS

Joshua Hale Fialkov and Alessandro Vitti

LARFLEEZE

Keith Giffen and Scott Kolins

This is quite the change. We'll have to see how it all goes. Of course the big test (for me) will be seeing what Fialkov does with RED LANTERNS (a title I really want to like).

DC putting faith into the Vendittis, Fialkovs and Jordans of the world is a very, very good sign.

Billy Tan on art is enough to make me drop Green Lantern. If Venditti sticks around longer than Tan, maybe I'll jump back on board with the next artist.

I suppose it's understandable why Venditti is no longer on Constantine then.

Larfleeze? Yet another comic to subscribe to. I guess this will continue from the backup in Threshold?

These changes seem really well thought out. Doubt I'll be reading any of them, but they sound high quality. If I come into some money by the summer, I might look into picking up Red Lanterns again under Fialkov. I really wanted Red Lanterns to be good, and now maybe it will be.

I don't really know these creators so it's hard to say. But after a quick google search of Billy Tan, I like his work with Marvel.

But Larfleeze? Really? John Stewart and Guy Gardner are still sharing a title and they're giving Larfleeze his own series?

Larfleeze is getting his own comic? Intriguing. Keith is a pretty talented writer. I shall see where this goes.

This makes me feel much more confident about DC recent cancellations of I,Vampire, Team 7, and Deathstroke and the creative team reshuffle on Constantine. The Larfleeze announcement has me worried about the longevity of Threshold though. The $3.99 price point is a death sentence for Dark and Edge series.

I really don't see Larfleeze doing well on his own, but hey, who knows.

Might begin to care about Green Lantern again now. Been under the taint of Johns for too long.

To the hopefully bright future.

I'm buying Threshold, but if I'm honest the highlight is definitely the Larfleeze back-up. It's what really sold the book to me, and what made me pick up a second issue. I worry about Threshold's longevity unless it can find another equally interesting and humorous character to feature in its back-ups.

 Robert Venditti is doing marvelous work over on X-O.  He's definitely a good pick.

So does this mean a new status quo for the whole GL line? I have never read a Green Lantern comic and I'm interested in the main GL book and GL Corps.

Would be nice to start a fresh story with not too much prior knowledge needed!

I think that Billy Tan is not that good of a choice for an artist for Green Lantern.

I'm definitely stoked on JHF doing Corps and Red Lanterns! I'll start picking Red Lanterns up again once he's on board. Still sad to see I, Vampire go, though.

I've never read any of Venditti's work but I've heard only good things about X-O so I'm pretty stoked!

Hrm, not truly moving the needle for me - however I do hope folks will be happy. DC should be more than aware that this property is a gold mine and would be best kept at optimum stock talent.

Its still sad to see Geoff Johns go, but Venditti is a very capable writer. I have been enjoying his Demon Knights so far and I've heard nothing but good things about his X-O Manowar.

Wait who's Robert Venditti? What are his credentials? In any case Fialkov on GLC and Red Lanterns with Jordan on New Guardians and Giffen writing Larfleeze is excellent news for the GLC as a whole. Johns may have done a good job setting up the GL universe but his replacements sound pretty interesting. Can't wait for more info!
