DC has announced new creative teams for its Green Lantern books, plus an all-new Green Lantern title, Larfleeze, written by Keith Giffen with art by Scott Kollins. Larfleeze, a.k.a. Agent Orange, is a greedy villain who wields the orange light of avarice.
Geoff Johns and Doug Mahnke will be stepping down from the flagship title, Green Lantern (see "Geoff Johns Ankles 'Green Lantern'"), and they’ll be replaced by writer Robert Venditti and artist Billy Tan.
Joshua Hale Fialkov and Bernard Chang will assume duties on Green Lantern Corps while Justin Jordan and Brad Walker take over Green Lantern: New Guardians. Finally, Red Lanterns will be helmed by Fialkov and Alessandro Vitti.
The announcement of these creative teams coincides with today’s release of the first installment of "Wrath of the First Lantern," which is Johns’ and Mahnke’s final Green Lantern story arc, wrapping up in June.
June is also when each new creative team will make its debut.
