Alan Moore's Rubbish Bin New Green Lantern Writer?

Not really, we thought the headline "Pete Tomasi, Keith Giffen, Robert Vendetti, Joshua Hale Fialkov, Justin Jordan, and Your Mom to Write Various Books in the Green Lantern Franchise" was too long and unwieldy!

Bleeding Cool's Rich Johnston has reported on the possible new writing lineup for the Green Lantern books in the wake of Geoff Johns' shocking abandonment of the main Green Lantern title only three years after he had run out of creative ideas for the franchise. Like Johnston stealing a joke from The Outhouse that The Outhouse stole from Reddit, we're happy to relay the information here.

According to Johnston, Peter Tomasi will move up from Green Lantern Corps to the main Green Lantern book, while Joshua Hale Fialkov will take over GLC. Johnston then flipped a coin and decided that Justin Jordan or Robert Vendetti would take over Green Lantern: New Guardians, and Keith Giffen's Threshold book would be considered a part of the franchise. The writers have allegedly vowed to use only discarded story ideas that Alan Moore came up with twenty years ago, in the tradition of Johns' successful Blackest Night storyline.

Perhaps the most shocking bit of news in all of this is that DC believes Green Lantern warrants four goddamn titles. This isn't Wolverine or Batman we're talking about here. It's Green freaking Lantern. The dude with the magic Jewelry and a rainbow-themed mythology stolen from Lucky Charms breakfast cereal and the Care Bears.

We should find out if the rumors above are true by about a week before next month's solicits, when Johnston spoils them before DC releases them to the rest of the internet.
