it was just a matter of time before I started posting about comic books again, and what a day to start! Blackest Night Wonder Woman #2 came out last week, and Blackest Night #6 the week before that, and since we know I shamelessly adore all things Wonder Woman, I’ll be writing a review of Blackest Night Wonder Woman to post asap, likely over at Dynamic Forces, so keep your eyes peeled! For now, how about some major Comic Book news?
Am I excited? Considering the fact that I love what Geoff Johns has done with characters outside of the “big three” or “trinity” in the DC Universe, I’m elated! Not only will it be another DC Universe scoping arc, it will be a 26 issue, bi-weekly series, and have tie in runs with the Brightest Day banner attached just like Blackest Night did. And I’m not the only one excited about this news:
- DCU in 2010: Kick Off Your Monday With Some Major News
- DC Announces Blackest Night follow-up: Brightest Day
- DC Reveals the Brightest Day
- DC Announces The Brightest Day
- DCU in 2010: More on Brightest Day: The Flash
- DCU in 2010: More on Brightest Day: Titans
- DCU in 2010: More on Brightest Day: Justice League of America
- Justice League to get new members under Brightest Day banner
So if you haven’t caught up on your Blackest Night reading, you might want to do so before the April launch of Brightest Day! I’ve avoided reviewing or discussing the individual issues of Blackest Night thus far, but know that one of the wonderful aspects of the Blackest Night arc that Geoff Johns is writing is that you can read only the main books (Blackest Nights 1-8) and understand the crux of the arc, the main histories for the different Corps, and get a general sense of how the event is shaking up the entire DC Universe. Trust me, though, you won’t be disappointed if you pick up the numerous tie ins that have been released alongside the main books. They’re worth it, if not for the more detailed, nuanced examinations of characters and groups and how they are effected by the event, then for the sheer craving to keep the story going beyond the central book.
