May will also see the departure of the creative teams of Green Lantern Corps, Green Lantern: New Guardians and Red Lanterns.

"So here's the sad news: Doug Mahnke and I are closing the Green Lantern saga that began with Green Lantern: Rebirth #1 with this May's 64-page Green Lantern #20," Johns wrote on DC's blog.

"As every storyline is coming to a head, it feels like the right time. The book is still doing great. The characters are as vibrant as ever. Let's go out how we started - on a high note.

"Counting up between the Green Lantern monthly series, Rebirth, Blackest Night and the various one-shots and specials... that makes over 100 issues of Green Lantern I've had the absolute privilege, pleasure and fortune to write."

Johns will continue his work on Justice League, Justice League of America and Aquaman.

Green Lantern #20 will arrive on May 8.
