DC Entertainment continues to expand its roster of top name talent, announcing today that it has reached an agreement with writer Sam Humphries (GREEN LANTERNS) to create comic book content solely for the publisher’s DC and Vertigo imprints.

Reflecting on bringing his talents to DC, Humphries said, “I am thrilled to be writing at DC Entertainment. Today’s announcement takes an already spectacular creative partnership to the next level.”

Humphries’ first assignment was teaming up with artist Robson Rocha for the highly anticipated GREEN LANTERNS. Humphries talent for strong character writing has resulted in an elevated status for Geoff Johns’ creations Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz within the DC Universe.

“We’re very excited to have Sam come to DC,” said DC’s Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras. “Sam is telling human stories that readers are emotionally connecting to, which is what being a Green Lantern is all about. Jessica and Simon are in great hands.”

Fans can look forward to Sam’s next story arc, The Phantom Lantern, in October when Simon and Jessica face an ancient predecessor to the Green Lantern’s rings that has all the power of a Lantern ring with none of the safeguards.

“Rebirth is an exciting time in comics, where nothing is impossible,” continued Humphries. “The Green Lanterns have one of the most storied legacies in comics, and never has the future felt so epic. Getting to write things like a new oath for the Phantom Lantern… as a creator you feel the history, and you feel the excitement for what’s to come.”

Humphries is the newest name to be added to DC’s roster of talent. DC has also recently signed artists Liam Sharp (WONDER WOMAN), Andy Kubert (DARK KNIGHT III), writers Dan Abnett (TITANS, AQUAMAN), Amanda Conner (HARLEY QUINN), James Tynion IV (DETECTIVE COMICS) and more. Stay tuned for more upcoming announcements as DC continues to expand its talent pool.
