SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read GREEN LANTERN #20 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).
We often get told that all good things must come to an end—because otherwise we’d be happy all the time and dang if the universe is going to have any of that malarkey. Even still, we like to believe that maybe, just maybe, this once, the good thing we love so much will just keep on going.
Sadly, universal fact proves true once again.
GREEN LANTERN #20 hits stores today and not only does this oversized issue contain the epic final chapter of the “Wrath of the First Lantern” saga, but it also marks the end of legendary scribe Geoff Johns’ time writing the series. Spanning more than 100 story issues over almost ten years, Geoff has breathed new life into one of DC’s most iconic characters and truly created a universe worthy of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps.
Following the thrilling conclusion of writer Geoff Johns’ historic near-decade run on GREEN LANTERN with this month’s issue #20, the acclaimed and New York Times bestselling series will be going in an all-new exciting new direction with the introduction of the new creative team of writer Robert Venditti and artist Billy Tan.
So where will we find protagonist Hal Jordan at the start of the series’ new story arc in GREEN LANTERN #21?
For nearly a decade, #1 New York Times best-selling writer Geoff Johns has been telling unforgettable stories that have forever changed the Green Lantern universe.
There's a new intergalactic villain in town: Relic. As a new era begins for Green Lantern, a new evil rises to face him. Check out the design by new GREEN LANTERN artist Billy Tan.
Did we scare you? Shocks, surprises, twists and turns have been staples in comic book storytelling—nay, all forms of storytelling—since, well, forever. Nothing beats turning the page and gasping at a plot twist or revelation you didn’t see coming.
We’ve all be there. Discussing our favorite super heroes with our friend (let’s randomly say, oh, Jimmy) and suddenly the conversation turns to who would win a fight. Not between us and Jimmy (obviously, that’d be us—what now, Jimmy?!) but in match-ups between Superman and Batman, Wonder Woman and SHAZAM!, the Flash and Green Lantern. The debate rages, and even though Jimmy is clearly wrong because he’s a big, stupid, jerkface, you never come to an agreement.
For some, April 1st means a day of practical jokes and pranks.
But here at the DC Entertainment offices, this date signifies the birthday of beloved MAD icon Alfred E. Neuman. This year, Alfred turns 12 (again!), and what better way to celebrate than by giving him a shot at being a superhero?
Throughout the course of the month, various DC Comics titles will have MAD themed variant covers, injecting the magazine’s unique blend of humor and satire into The New 52. Below, take a look at where you can check out all of these covers:
