And it’s a beauty. Next year’s Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo — C2E2 for short — just got a bit greener. GREEN LANTERN, specifically.
12 heroes and villains return from the dead suddenly to find a changed world and an endless supply of questions and conflict. How will heroes like Firestorm, Aquaman, Hawkman, Captain Boomerang and more solve the mystery of their return and answer one question: What would you do with a second chance at life?
Before we roll into the full list of BRIGHTEST DAY solicits, we thought this merited a mention. Heck, the name alone gave us pause. “Aquawar”? As BRIGHTEST DAY barrels toward its grand finale, things heat up for one of the main protagonists and his supporting cast — it’s too early to get into details, but how about a look at the cover to February’s BRIGHTEST DAY #19 and the other key BRIGHTEST DAY titles and a few more clues below?
High above the clouds of the Nth City on Hawkworld, Hawkman takes center stage, as he begins an all-out assault to save his beloved. But back on Earth, who will the White Lantern ring choose as its bearer and, in turn, the protector of the planet? The last page will shock you. All in an issue’s work from the all-pro team of Geoff Johns, Peter Tomasi, Ardian Syaf, Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. BRIGHTEST DAY #13 arrives tomorrow. [gallery link="file"]
