What’s up PoYiF fans?! It’s Wilson and Lu coming at you with another What’s Up Wednesday. This time we’re doing a 3 part profile on Geoffrey Thorne the new writer for DC’s Green Lantern and he’s got some big plans!
We discuss Geoff’s love of sci-fi, his journey to becoming a writer, his storytelling style through his work on Marvel’s Mosaic and how he ended up taking on the DC Cosmos as the writer of Green Lantern.
Or as Lu likes to call it, Part I remix, we discuss all the things we discussed in part 1, but through the lens of Geoffrey Thorne’s Blackness. It’s a story you’ve heard JUST NOT LIKE THIS.
In Part 3 we talk with Geoff about the Green Lantern run. Did we mention that John Stewart is the center of this run? We think his Blackness is pretty important in that context. So it’s Geoff as a Black sci-fi fan, overcoming some struggles as a Black writer, and the intersection of the Thorne identity and his work.
