Blackest Night is a company-wide, multiple title story arc published by DC Comics. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Ivan Reis, Blackest Night is the story about how a counterpart to the Green Lantern’s Central Power Battery is found and accidentally activated. Dead superheroes, killed in recent years are brought back to life via the use of black power rings issued by the Green Lantern villain, Black Hand at the behest of a dark power located with a region of deep space called Sector 666. This series of stories is the third in a trilogy that began with Green Lantern: Rebirth and was followed up with the “Sinestro Corps War”.
” The light of the emotional spectrum will rise!…
…The red throes of rage, the orange light of avarice,…
…the yellow fire of fear, the blue rays of hope,…
…the indigo glow of compassion and the violet aura of love.
And in the center of it all, the green might of will power.
And as the light rises, so shall an unknown darkness!
A darkness with no satiation.
A darkness with no life!”
Geoff Johns has been planning this event since the Green Lantern: Rebirth story and it will dominate the direction of the DC Universe for now and months to come. A must read for DC fans it effects all the superheroes and villains. Death plays no favorites and somehow the “War of Light” must turn from its end to stop the armies of Death. How will it end? You must read to find out, or wait to read the trade paperback which is way down the road. See you at the comic shop. Stay tuned comic faithful for More 🙂 Walt.
