This is one of the writing gigs that I've been patiently waiting to be announced so I could talk about it. And I will when it gets closer to the shipping date, both here and in interviews at various websites. I'm very proud of this 3-part story, they're the best comics I've written to date (which may not say much) and, so far, Pat Gleason and Prentis Rollins have blown my mind with the art. This storyline introduces a new, much more bad ass division of the Green Lantern Corps that will, knock on wood, be spinning off into its own title next year.

It's going to be a fun month for me and will hopefully lead into a very exciting 2007.

Congrats Keith! That is really great news. I just dropped GLC due to cutting down on what I spend, but I'll be sure to pick up your arc! Glad DC are keeping you busy mate!

Bro, it's great to see you getting more writing gigs. I doubt anyone in the World knows more comics then you. You took the chance at the Kubert School, you've never stopped pushing yourself and it's about time you get your shot. Congrats Bro!

Reed, of course Guy is in it!

right on, brother! I can't wait to get a copy of this. I am loving seeing the Champagne career in full swing. With all this creativity happening, am I noticing a huge increase on sales of 2 liter Mountain Dew???
