Geoff Johns Confirms He Just Can’t Quit Doug Mahnke

Today is a bittersweet day for fans of Green Lantern, as Geoff Johns’ character-defining run on the book comes to a close with Green Lantern #20. Since 2009, fans of the Corps (like myself) have always had two things we could rely on; the words of Johns, and the perfect pencils of Doug Mahnke to go with them. While the conclusion of this run was inevitable, it’s still sad to see it end.

On the positive side, while it won’t between the covers of GL, the dynamic duo of Johns and Mahnke isn’t something we have to say goodbye to. In a letter to fans published in Green Lantern #20, Johns takes the time to thank all the creators he was able to work with in his time with the Corps, in particular Mahnke. However, along with thanking him, he also confirms what we already expected: Mahnke will be making the jump to Johns’ newest project, Justice League of America.

It had already been established that Mahnke would be lending his artistic skills to JLA #6 and #7, the issues that overlap the upcoming Trinity War event, but now his permanent status has been confirmed. There has been no word yet on whether current JLA artist David Finch will be moving to a new book once Mahnke comes on board.

Check out the entire letter below, and be sure to grab the historic Green Lantern #20, on shelves today!
