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.
Yesterday we gave you a sneak peek at the second issue of BLACKEST NIGHT: BATMAN, so why not cap off the week with a look at the second SUPERMAN issue? Sure, why not? Writer James Robinson and artist Eddy Barrows unveil a crisis in Smallville, as the Black Lantern Psycho Pirate attacks. And what happens when Superman's dead bride returns as a Black Lantern? Nothing good, I'd wager. So give these pages a look, enjoy your weekend and be sure to reserve a copy.
BLACKEST NIGHT: SUPERMAN #2 hits 9/23.
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.
It's finally here.
The players are in place. The dead are rising.
You've seen the previews and read the issues leading up to BLACKEST NIGHT #1,which hit comic shops today.
My magic blogging eight-ball just said “Blogging Will Be Light,” so I’m going with that. Oh, and it’s a holiday weekend. So, yes. This’ll be it for today. But, we bring you some more fun news from the DCU editorial gang. Specifically, TITANS editor Brian Cunningham. What say you, BC?:
“When is Tempest coming back?”
More often than not, that’s been the question fans have asked since TITANS launched last year. A fair query, since Tempest has been AWOL from the DC Universe for seemingly longer than the Jonas Brothers have been alive.
