Geoff Johns – One Monthly Comic Later

geoff_johns_576After the launch of the New 52 at DC Comics, Geoff Johns, Chief Creative Officer at DC Comics working out of Burbank, wrote a number of comics for DC every month. Aquaman, Justice League, Green Lantern, Forever Evil, Earth One, Superman and more.

He was then told by DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson that he could only write two books a month. And editors were told not to assign him any work. This was ostensibly for his to concentrate on the rest of the DC product as CCO – but he also managed to find work on the TV shows and cartoons as well.

I heard that his creative workload was being reduced further. At the DC retailer roadshow at Orlando on Friday, a retailer asked about this and was told that Justice League will be his only monthly comic book going forward, though he can still also write the Earth One graphic novels.

All-Star Batgirl, it's going to be an even longer time… soon they are also going to run out of Geoff Johns comics for him to choose to adapt into direct-to-video animations…
