The Eisner Awards, considered by many to be "The Oscars" of comic book industry awards, unveiled their nominees for the 2010 ceremony today, honoring a number of key DCU titles and creators. The winners will be named at the San Diego Comic-Con International, the largest and oldest comic convention in the United States. Let's check out the DCU nominees, shall we? SINGLE ISSUE:
Well, that was an epic ride, wasn’t it? BLACKEST NIGHT #8 brought the massively popular series to a close, but not without opening some doors for the future. But, let me cut right to the chase: Do not read any further if you haven’t gone to your comic shop and picked up BLACKEST NIGHT #8 yet. Spoiler Warning is definitely up and in effect. Trust me. Go on, I’ll wait here. Back? OK, give it a read. Done? How ‘bout that ending, huh? Bet you weren’t expecting this…
The final issue of BLACKEST NIGHT hits next week, and with that one of the biggest comic events in recent DCU history concludes. Where that leaves our heroes, and what’s to come is still up in the air. But before you consider picking up that issue, you’ll need to grab GREEN LANTERN #52, the penultimate chapter of BLACKEST NIGHT featuring the universe’s most surprising White Lantern on its cover, courtesy of writer Geoff Johns and artist Doug Mahnke. GREEN LANTERN #52 hits 3/24. [gallery link="file" columns="4"]
Earlier this month, we gave you guys a first look at the inked cover to BLACKEST NIGHT #8, the final issue of writer Geoff Johns and artist Ivan Reis' epic, universe-spanning series. Beautiful stuff, no? Well, if you missed it, no worries, we've got the final, color version right here, for your Friday enjoyment as we head into the final issue of BLACKEST NIGHT.
As THE RISE AND FALL continues to rage, we're getting a glimpse of how things will shake down amidst the rubble and tragedy surrounding Star City. Oliver Queen has been branded a murderer by his friends. Roy Harper is facing a shattered and twisted reflection of his past life. The Brightest Day looms -- but what does it mean?
But that's not all. We all know that BLACKEST NIGHT will reach its epic conclusion in March, but there's more. This universe-shaking issue will also feature 10 extra story pages for the same $3.99 price. Good deal, no? And, to tide you over until the issue hits stands, we've got an inked version of the cover to BLACKEST NIGHT #8, courtesy of artist Ivan Reis. Enjoy!
