J.T. Krul and artist Ed Benes continue to turn up the BLACKEST NIGHT volume on the TITANS, and we've got a few pages for you to look over. We'll have a more formal (i.e. lettered and colored!) preview, but why make you wait until then? Especially when we have some pretty intense Titan-on-Titan violence? Black Lantern Hawk! Red Star! Pantha! Wildabeest! Plus, a very creepy family reunion. OK, I'll clam up. Check out the pages below for yourself. BLACKEST NIGHT: TITANS #2 hits 9/30. [gallery link="file"]
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. [gallery link="file"]
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. But there's more. Included in the extra material on the GREEN LANTERN: FIRST FLIGHT DC Universe animated original movie — on sale 7/28 on Blu-ray and DVD -- is a feature spotlighting this summer's biggest event, including interviews with Geoff Johns, Peter Tomasi and Dan DiDio. And we’ve got two clips from the segment right here.
