Geoff Johns reveals first post-<i>Blackest Night</i> <i>Green Lantern</i> storyline

MILD SPOILER WARNING

One of our first (quasi-)official glimpses of the DC Universe after Blackest Night emerged this past holiday weekend from an increasingly common source for this sort of thing: a Twitter feed.

Responding to reader praise for the most recent issue of Green Lantern, Blackest Night writer Geoff Johns teased the shape of things to come:

Thanks for the kind words on GL #49 - yes, John Stewart IS a bad ass. Can't wait to see his scene in BN #8 play out and...in the storyline post-Blackest Night in Green Lantern: NEW GUARDIANS. [...] Next storyline after Blackest Night starting with GREEN LANTERN #53. All I can say right now. :)

Responding to further tweets, Johns briefly elaborated on the role that Green Lantern John Stewart will play:

Yes, John Stewart features prominently in the new status quo of GL after Blackest Night...exactly how I cannot reveal! John Stewart is all about building a better tomorrow imo, which he does quite literally and will do even more so with...his NEW responsibility post-BN.

As readers of Green Lantern and Blackest Night know, the old Guardians of the Universe haven't exactly earned their Christmas bonuses this year. "New Guardians" may well be long overdue ...

PREVIEW: Superman Smashes the Klan #1
