Neither can we. But what to do before the first issue hits? Well, did you know that GREEN LANTERN #43 is a prologue to BLACKEST NIGHT? No? That's a shame. Well, this issue, featuring story by some guy named Geoff Johns and the new regular GREEN LANTERN art team of Doug Mahnke and Christian Alamy not only gets the ball rolling toward the big summer event, but it also features the birth of the first Black Lantern. Discover who he is and just what his connection to death -- and in turn, the Black Lantern Corps -- really is. Wait, words aren't enough? Fine. Here are two pages from the issue.
Well, of course we had to end with the Black Lanterns. And, as you've probably noticed, IGN has a first look at the amazing piece of work by artist Doug Mahnke, which gives us a first look at the Black Lanterns and some of their potential members.
And in case you missed it, here's a collection of our entire CORPS 101 series, from Green to Black. Why waste valuable time linking back when we can show it all in one place? That's my logic, and I'm sticking to it.
What's love got to do with it? A lot, actually.
The Guardians of Oa have the Green Lanterns while their counterparts, the Zamarons -- fueled by emotions, unlike the Guardians -- created the Star Sapphires, a group of super-powered soldiers wielding the power of love.
Click below for more info on the Star Sapphires, in this, our penultimate "Corps 101." Can you guess which comes last?
What happens when two Guardians of the Universe go rogue and get all "emotional"? Well, the hopeful Blue Lanterns, that's what. Formed by Ganthet and Sayd after they were banished from the Guardians, the Blue Lanterns always look on the bright side, even when that brightness is coming from a yellow Sinestro Corps ring.
