Johns began his iconic Green Lantern run in 2004 with Green Lantern: Rebirth, which reintroduced Hal Jordan to the DC Comics Universe and began a journey that would make the series one of the most exciting and bestselling franchises in the comics industry.  Over the next eight years, Johns recast the Green Lantern mythos, developing a universe of new characters and concepts that would make storylines including “Blackest Night, Brightest Day,” and “The Sinestro Corps War” the most talked about and influential comics events of the decade.  Johns now concludes that run with Green Lantern #20, leaving the franchise with hundreds of new characters and worlds that will be explored for generations to come.

Greenest Night: A Celebration of Geoff Johns’ Green Lantern toasts Johns’ unique accomplishment with an upscale and intimate celebration at the Avalon Bardot theater in Hollywood, CA.  There are two levels of admission for this limited event:

Regular Admission tickets are available for a $100 donation to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, and includes admission to the exclusive Q&A, as well as a gift bag featuring a signed & numbered commemorative print from Graphitti Designs, a signed copy of Green Lantern #20 with a commemorative Certificate of Authenticity, and other gifts.  $80 of this contribution is tax deductible.

  1. Yeah, good luck with that. Who in Hollywood would want to drop $100 to hear a comic book writer speak? And at a disco nightclub no less.

  2. Poor Johns, he’s like the John Calipari of superhero comics. A big fish in a little pond that tried to work in the movie biz but my goodness wasn’t that GL movie a stinker?

    Now, all verve seems to have gone out of his comic work–not that he had huge range anyway–but he could get those emotional beats down sometimes. It’s so nakedly pandering to whatever $$$ now and there’s no character backstory anymore to hang one’s hat on that everybody he writes comes across as a what Rushkoff describes as “mooks.”

    His departure from GL is probably about 2-3 years too late. Shame.

    I do hope CBLDF makes like a bajillion dollars off this though.

  3. I agree with the above poster, in that I do hope the CBLDF benefits from this. But celebrating a guy whose most original ideas were “why not bring back Hal Jordan” and “What if GL rings came in other colors” seems sad as hell.

Speak Your Mind
