Brightest Day – DC Comics

Brightest Day is an upcoming year-long comic book limited series premiering in April 2010. This will be following the ending of the series Blackest Night.

After Blackest Night is Brightest Day

The series will run bi-weekly for 26 issues alternating with Justice League: Generation Lost written by Keith Giffen and Judd Winick. It will also be crossing over into the Green Lantern series, the Green Lantern Corps, Justice League of America, The Titans and a new The Flash series, which will have a “Brightest Day” banner. It was later announced that Gail Simone would return to the Birds of Prey comic book, which will also be under the same banner.

It has also been revealed that the Green Lantern series will have a lot more of characters like Atrocitus and Larfleeze in a story arc called “New Guardians”. The first issue, issue #0, will be penciled by Fernando Pasarin. Artist David Finch will illustrate the covers for the series.

Geoff Johns and Peter Tomasi will be part of the creative team for this crossover block buster. Johns in an IGN interview says “Brightest Day is the next step in repositioning a lot of characters in the DC Universe and pushing them to the next level. A lot of the main characters we’ve seen in Blackest Night will continue on to Brightest Day, like Mera and the Atom.”

I am convinced that Geoff Johns is a great writer in the same class as Brian Michael Bendis on the Marvel side. Remarkable talent directing the fate of the DC Universe and I hope making the backgroung for something special in comic writing. I hope one day we will look back on this time in comics and say WOW was that GOOD. See you at the comic shop. Stay tuned comic faithful for More. 🙂 Walt
