Geoff Johns has written scores of comics including Infinite Crisis, 52, Green Lantern, All Star Batgirl, Teen Titans, X-Men, The Avengers, The Flash, JSA and Superman. Ethan Van Sciver joined DC Comics to draw Impulse and has gone on to illustrate the adventures of its greatest heroes, including Superman, Batman, Green Lantern and The Flash.From Booklist:
In 1994 DC Comics decided to shake up the long-running Green Lantern by killing off Hal Jordan, wielder of the ring of power since 1959, and bestowing power and costume on someone new. After a decade of fans' protests, however, a five-issue-spanning Rebirth resurrected Jordan (in superhero comics, no one ever really dies) and restored the original Green Lantern concepts. Bringing Jordan back wasn't easy because he had gone insane, murdered his fellow Green Lanterns, become all-powerful villain Parallax, and finally been transformed into the latest embodiment of godlike vengeance spirit the Spectre. Popular DC writer Johns set things right by means of a necessarily convoluted and contrived resurrection ploy that yet supplied the intergalactic brawls and superhero valor the fans demand. Meanwhile, Ethan Van Sciver's drawing epitomized the cluttered, over-rendered style dominating superhero comics today (in reviving classic characters, DC might have considered restoring the visual clarity of earlier comics eras, too). Rebirth was a smash serialized; the collected edition should be equally popular. Gordon Flagg
