What would drive a Lantern to abandon the ways of willpower for pure rage? We're not sure, but we're curious to find out. So, we asked GREEN LANTERN CORPS Editor Adam Schlagman to give us some info. And he was kind enough to throw in some art. So, take it away, Adam:
Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason pull out all the stops for GREEN LANTERN CORPS #40, as BLACKEST NIGHT continues and the battle on Oa rages on. The honored, fallen Corps members and the recently deceased Sciencell convicts are now bloodthirsty Black Lanterns -- and they won't rest until the bloody hearts and minds of the GLs are literally in their hands. Can John Stewart, Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner stop the Blackest Night from engulfing Sector Zero? We're not sure, honestly. But these three pages should get you stoked.
Michael Siglain here. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m one of the editors here at DC. More specifically, I’m one of the Bat-editors, and am currently responsible for Detective Comics, Outsiders, Batgirl, Vigilante and Booster Gold, among other comic book greatness. I’m here today to give you a peek behind the editorial iron curtain, so get ready to feast your eyes...
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.
