Heyyy! It’s Kuya P back again with another NOC EXCLUSIVE! I recently sat down for a conversation with Screenwriter/Producer/Novelist/Actor, Geoffrey Thorne to discuss his latest comics work on DC Comics’ Green Lantern!
“In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape Geoffrey’s sight.
BIO: Thorne was born in Washington, D.C. After a successful career as a television actor including portraying police officer Wilson Sweet in the television series In the Heat of the Night from 1988 to 1993, Thorne began writing professionally, winning Second Prize in Simon & Schuster’s sixth annual Strange New Worlds anthology with his story “The Soft Room.” He went on to publish more stories in several media tie-in anthologies as well as the Star Trek: Titan novel Sword of Damocles.
Other stories he has written include contributions to Flying Pen Press’s anthology Space Grunts, MV Media’s Steamfunk anthology, and Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine.
As a screenwriter, Thorne was a writer for season 9 of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, multiple episodes of the Ben 10 and Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man franchises was a writer on season 3-5 of TNT’s Leverage and a writer-producer on the Electric Entertainment’s The Librarians.
In 2014 Lion Forge Entertainment and NBC-Universal tapped Thorne to reboot the global fan favorite TV series, Knight Rider in comic book form. He is also the co-creator of Phantom Canyon, an audio drama from Pendant Productions.
In 2017 Marvel Entertainment tapped Thorne to be head writer and showrunner of the animated Avengers series, retitled Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest, and in 2019 he became Co-Executive Producer of Ghost, the first spinoff of the STARZ network global smash hit, Power.
Thorne is also a co-founder and writing partner of GENRE 19, a studio he formed with artist Todd Harris in 2008. (Wikipedia)
Thorne is currently the writer of the new Green Lantern ongoing series from DC Comics launching in April 2021. This new series spins out of his work on Future State: Green Lantern, and will focus on Green Lantern John Stewart, Teen Lantern Keli Quintela (from DC’s Young Justice title) and include Sojourner “Jo” Mullein from Far Sector.
