DCU IN 2010: KICK OFF YOUR MONDAY WITH SOME MAJOR NEWS

By DCE Editorial Monday, January 11th, 2010
Alex Segura: OK Dan, I got your call, I’m here. It’s pretty early, even for us. This is a first for THE SOURCE – a live interview with you on the blog. Very exciting. What’s got you so jazzed up? Dan DiDio: I’ll just get right to the point, Alex – we’re ready to announce everything that’s coming up after BLACKEST NIGHT. AS: Wow, really? I’m glad I brought my notebook. DD: And I’m happy to announce that for the DCU, after the BLACKEST NIGHT will come a BRIGHTEST DAY this April. A biweekly, 26-issue series, kicking off with BRIGHTEST DAY #0. prev_brtst-day AS: BRIGHTEST DAY – that’s major. Who’s steering the ship creatively, though? DD: As you can imagine, we’re really excited by the great work the teams behind GREEN LANTERN and GREEN LANTERN CORPS have brought to our fans every month. And, we just don’t want to let go of that just yet. So BRIGHTEST DAY will be written by Geoff Johns and Peter Tomasi. AS: And both GREEN LANTERN and GREEN LANTERN CORPS will have a BRIGHTEST DAY banner? DD: Correct. AS: Can you say anything about the artists on the book? I’d imagine, since it’s a biweekly book, you’d need more than one. DD: Sorry to wake you and not give you all the answers at once, but we have to save a few for later. We have a number of wonderful artists slated to contribute to the book, which we’ll be announcing soon. We can say that Fernando Pasarin will be handling the art on BRIGHTEST DAY #0. AS: Sounds good. And we’ll have more BRIGHTEST DAY news for you faithful readers in, oh, about two hours. In the meantime, can I go grab a cup of coffee? DD: Sure.
