SDCC CONversations: An Interview with Charles Soule

Many comic book writers out there dream of writing a series for The New 52. But Charles Soule isn’t writing a New 52 comic. He’s writing three of them. After making his New 52 debut in April, 2013 with SWAMP THING #19, Charles soon joined the Green Lantern universe as the new writer of Red Lanterns before announcing his upcoming (and highly anticipated) Superman/Wonder Woman ongoing.

We sat down with Charles at San Diego Comic-Con to ask him a few questions about his suddenly very full slate.

5.2 Reasons to Keep Exploring the Green Lantern Universe

A few weeks ago, the creative teams behind the Green Lantern titles all metaphorically retired from the Corps with the release of their respective series’ 20th issue (that said, once a Lantern, always a Lantern).

However, like the rings of the Corps themselves, worthy successors have been chosen to carry on the tradition set before them and to guide the Green Lantern Universe to new and exciting heights filled with crazy adventure, dangerous villains, and characters both old and new.
