Johns told The Huffington Post his decision to step down as scribe for Green Lantern will allow him to focus all of his efforts towards Justice League, Justice League of America, and Aquaman.
Check out the brief interview below:
It was a very, very hard decision. I absolutely love these characters but I felt like I had a story line that really made sense and felt emotionally satisfying and felt very big and very epic.
I’m really proud of all the stuff we’ve built with Green Lantern, from Larfleeze to the different corps. The universe has expanded and will live well past my run. It was more than just telling another story, but really giving back to the character by expanding and adding to their mythology.
Though Geoff Johns will indeed be leaving Green Lantern behind, he will however continue his writing duties for Simon Baz in the pages of Justice League of America. While it’s pretty sad to see Johns Green Lantern run come to an end, he promised that issue #20 will close things off in a big way.
