Good morning, Source readers. Hope Monday wasn't too stressful. Now, what can we do here that'll make this Tuesday better than usual? How about a first look at BRIGHTEST DAY #1? And, not just any first look, but a peek at a key scene featuring Hal, Sinestro and Star Sapphire, as rendered by superstar BLACKEST NIGHT artist Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. OK, OK. I get it. Stop talking and let us see the pages. Here goes. Courtesy of writers Geoff Johns and Peter Tomasi and artists Ivan Reis, Patrick Gleason, Ardian Syaf, Scott Clark and Joe Prado. Welcome to BRIGHTEST DAY...
We’ve now seen them but what are the Entities that power "The New Guardians"? Does this variant cover hold any answers, courtesy of artist Alex Garner, who did the ACTION COMICS variant we posted not long ago. Wait, you want more info? No problem. We visited with GREEN LANTERN editor Eddie Berganza for the scoop. Take it away, Eddie:
As if he weren’t busy enough with his duties as Co-Publisher of DC Comics, our very own Dan DiDio is a constant presence at cons across the country and around the globe. From time to time, we’ll get a note from Dan with a photo of him and some of our great fans, so we thought it’d be nice to give a few of those dedicated, costume-wearing readers a little time under The Source’s spotlight. So here are a few shots from Dan’s most recent jaunt across the country with some familiar faces.
Writer Geoff Johns and artist Doug Mahnke present the next exciting chapter of the Green Lantern mythos right here, with the first part of "New Guardians." Forced to work together during the deadly rise of the Black Lanterns, Hal Jordan, Sinestro, Carol Ferris, Saint Walker, Atrocitus, Indigo-1 and Larfleeze must agree to disagree if their next mission is to succeed. But when a familiar and strange face returns, will everything be put into question again? My guess? Seems like it. GREEN LANTERN #53 hits tomorrow.
I always liked the Atom. Ray Palmer’s alter-ego captivated my imagination when I was younger. I guess from a visual perspective, his tiny figure amongst the superheroic statures of Superman and Batman just looked cool. And that this little dude stood in the company of the big guns really impressed me.
