DC's Blackest Night

Something big is coming to DC this summer on July 15th.

http://dcublog.dccomics.com/

Most comic book fans are aware that a huge event, Blackest Night, is coming this July. Over the past months, mostly through DC Direct action figure solicit information, readers have learned the identities of several Black Lantern Corps members.

- The Earth-2 Superman, Kal-L.




- Aquaman.




- Martian Manhunter.




- Ronnie Raymond (older Firestorm)



among others.

All the above images are teasers. To see them in full glory, save them to your computer, open in Paint, and in the Edit/Tools menu, hit "Invert Colors".


This is the cover art (pencilled)-




(To Be Continued...)

They're really psyched about this on the Wizard forums. Justifiably so, because Geoff Johns has been doing really good stuff with the Green Lantern Corps.

Maybe you can begin to piece together the members of the undead Black Lantern Corps.

DC's news blog has steadily been releasing profile pages of the various Lantern Corps in the DC Universe. And now we're able to debut the profile page for the Black Lanterns. Best of all... you can see pieces of costumes!




And finally, the cover to Blackest Night: Batman #1 by Andy Kubert.




A three issue mini-series, Blackest Night: Batman will explore the effects of the Black Lantern Corps on the protectors of Gotham. That obviously seems to suggest someone is coming back from the dead... but who? Bruce Wayne, as most readers know, is alive and well in the ancient past of the DC Universe. So who will terrorize the city? Some have speculated Bruce's shell of a body could become reanimated... but no one at DC is talking. Regardless, intergalactic zombies will soon be at the doorstep of a new Batman and Robin. No doubt a threat of this magnitude will be their first major test.


Blackest Night #0 was released May 2, 2009 as a part of Free Comic Book Day.

Blackest Night #1, by Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis, is scheduled to hit stores on July 15, 2009.

Connor Kent...although, from what I've read in one comic...they SEEM to have bought him back to life...
Jon J'onnz
Bruce Wayne
Max Mercury
Aquaman - the old one
Solomon Grundy, 'cos he's always dying...

My guesses.

Looks like a decent event...after the last shitty crisis finally wrapped up it'll be nice to have a change. Tha Black Lantern thing has been a bit of an underlying story for a while now, the whole "lantern wars" is getting a bit old, this should close it nicely.

Most definitely.

Looks like DC's solid answer to Marvel Zombies. And with the entire DC rooster thrown at this one, it promises to kick some serious ass. The Green Lantern Corps saga is all ready to get a much-needed boost.

I heard that that the Batman event is about Dick facing The Flying Graysons.

I was pretty annoyed that Dick got the cowl. Lazy writing. He doesn't have anything to learn.

But there could be a lot of potential in Damian as Robin.

Maybe so, but I was hoping for Tim showing Damian the ropes or Jason Todd struggling for redemption. And I feel kind of cheated because in a future scenario in one of the Teen Titans trades it showed Tim as Batman.

I think Grant Morrison put Todd off limits. I'm still under the suspicion that Jason Todd was the Satan Batman that Damian fought in Issue #666.

And I'm quite looking forward to seeing Tim Drake in the new Red Robin comic.
