Whither Geoff Johns?
So, Geoff Johns has left Green Lantern, he's leaving Aquaman, he's leaving JLA. When Forever Evil (eventually) ends, the only book he's known to be writing is Justice League.
Which is interesting, because Johns is the Golden Boy, the one writer guaranteed to goose sales substantially. Remember how they had him co-write the first issue of Vibe, just to trick people into reading it?
So it seems unlikely that DC is going to allow their "indispensable man" to script only one book, even if it is the flagship. Surely he has to be writing at least one more mag?He then offers up a few "wild ass guesses", leading off with what I think is an inevitable series, Shazam! Following the success of the back-ups in Justice League that launched the character, it makes sense for Johns to continue with it.
Snell makes plenty of other guesses, as do some of the commenters but one title popped into my head as I awoke this morning around 6:45 and, selfishly, I thought rather than post it as a comment on snell's blog, I'd do it on mine!
Forever Evil #1 starts with Lex Luthor threatening Thomas Kord in order to buy out his company. Thomas refuses, saying that one day his son will run it.
We all took that as foreshadowing Ted Kord's return to the DCU as Blue Beetle . . . but what if Johns is going to write a Ted Kord Blue Beetle series?!
I for one would buy that in a heartbeat.
