Following the exciting conclusion to Brightest Day, the new protector of Earth has been chosen - but one reluctant hero makes a return to try and convince Batman, Superman and the rest of the DC Universe's heroes that this may not be a good thing at all. BRIGHTEST DAY AFTERMATH: THE SEARCH will be a three-part miniseries written by Jonathan Vankin and drawn by Marco Castiello chronicling the fallout of Brightest Day. We can't give away too much about it now, but keep reading Brightest Day and keep an eye on The Source for more clues. THE SEARCH begins in June.
The stakes are really escalating as the end of BRIGHTEST DAY grows near. From Zamron to Central City, the pieces are all coming together. The White Lantern has a plan. There's several chilling lines in issue 18, on sale tomorrow, and we'll leave you with this one.... "Why are you aiming the ring at us?" [gallery link="file" columns="2"]
Today is Green Lantern day on THE SOURCE, and we're continuing with a tease from BRIGHTEST DAY #17 featuring the Star Sapphires. What happens in that issue? According to GL Editor Adam Schlagman, "Carol Ferris and the Star Sapphires join Hawkman and Hawkgirl in a fight for the survival of Zamaron and the purity of love, but with the Hawks' connection to the cosmic corps, it looks like this meeting may end in bloodshed."

If any hero should worry amidst the events surrounding BLACKEST NIGHT, it should be Batman. Boasting one of the strongest, creepiest and deadliest Rogues Gallery in the DCU, just the idea of some of the fallen villains returning as Black Lanterns sends a chill up my spine. Will the new Batman's career be cut short? Will Red Robin have to face off against his own father? You'll have to pick up the issue to find out.
