Last summer, DC Comics writer Geoff Johns surprised readers with a little story he called Sinestro Corps War,
juggling a multitude of villains and ring-wearing heroes in a
space-based epic that became one of DC's most successful events of 2007.
It may be a year later, but it looks like Johns is up to his surprise-pulling tricks again.
This year, Johns will join with artist George Perez to tell another epic story about a team of ring-wearing heroes in Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds, the oversized five-issue mini-series that begins in August.
While we talked to Johns in detail (both here and here) about the characters he's re-introducing in Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds, we're checking back again as the release date draws near and Final Crisis is underway (just as we did Monday with the other Final Crisis mini-series set for August, Final Crisis: Revelations.
And this time, Johns spilled about how this series will reverberate
into the coming year, confirming that not only will questions be
answered about the Legion, their lightning rod and that rascal
Superboy-Prime, but readers of Green Lantern might also want to take
Newsarama: First, Geoff, let's talk about the scope of Legion of 3 Worlds.
We talked a lot in the past about the Legion characters, but will this
comic play into other things going on the in the DC Universe?
Geoff Johns: Legion of 3 Worlds, while an epic on its own, sets up a lot of things for 2009 in the DCU. It’s grown out of my work on Action Comics, Justice Society of America, Green Lantern, The Flash, Teen Titans and Infinite Crisis.
It’s strange, looking at it in the big picture. It’s a culmination in a
sense for me and leads me to the next level and the next books.
