>In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night...
It's what we've all waited for.
The War of Light leads to Night.
A challenge none is prepared for.
Enough though, let's get on with it.
Green Lantern: Blackest Night
Alright, I fibbed a little... we have some Tales to go through first.
Tales of the Corps: Mongul.
Also, bring your own tunes. NO OINGO BOING...YET
Don't have time for Halloween. Have nephews to take out trick or treating.
SO LET'S PRETEND!
Tales of the Corps: Larfleeze
Tales of the Corps: Arisia
Tales of the Corps: Bleez
Alright, one last one...
Tales of the Corps: Carol Ferris
No... but the ring still has a point.
And NOW the stage is set...
Tales of the Corps: The Black Lantern!
Here we go...
Also known as Black Hand.
I don't get the surprise. I've been doing Johns' GL from the start for the last month and a half.
Ain't that the sweetest thing?
You're actually right on time for the main event.
That could also be the madness talking, Hand
We get it... lotsa death
That's just... kinda gross
Part... 1? I guess?:
wherein it's a singular command
THE BEGINNING OF TIME...
what a place to start
Blackest Night is much more of a Brave and the Bold story than I originally remember.
Which ain't a bad thing.
Oh Bats... you so crazy.
Nobody respects Swampy's gifts.
Sorry, just the main Blackest Night stuff. This is going to be looong anway.
wherein you hit the ground running
Yes...again, I've been doing this for almost two months.
Thanks for understanding.
>Yes...again, I've been doing this for almost two months.
I've seen this storytimed with the full Blackest Night series storytimed, then GL, and then GLC so just wanted to make sure.
No problem. Just that I've been doing all of Johns' GL in order for a while. Why would I leave them out now?
The City Without Fear.
But nowhere is free of death.
Graveyard of the Rogues is such a neato idea.
If only the note sequence in Alex's death wasn't so fucking hilarious.
It's still the first thing I can think of when I look back at her death and it strips it away of all tragedy
Barry, you of all people should guess why.
>Also, Green Lantern as a Flash Spinoff, back boarding the same way Barry did in Arrow.
CW probably doesn't have the money to do an actual GL show even if they kept it on Earth, but I desperately want Hal to show up in Flash/Arrow
Bring your own tunes.
It;s that kinda story.
Or so you would think Hal.
And tough luck Barry, Carol is still alive and kickin'
I did that last week. Saved half for today.
I love insulting zombies.
They can get so catty.
>5 pages of "Identity Crisis was bad and you should feel bad"
This was honestly a point back then, I cannot remember how many times it was addressed just to rightfully shit on it.
wherein it's a sort of jail break, in a way
That was a very stupid thing to do Kyle
And what would we be without more Kryb?
Same here. I always thought the premise way a bit silly (well sillier than usual), but this is a good comic.
Before I started posting on /co/, I was a Marvel guy through and through. I mean, I liked Batman, but that was it. Now I'm digging DC more and more.
Yeah, this can't help matters one bit.
No problem. Glad you're not bored.
I honestly don't know how to feel about Blackest Night.
I mean, the great dreaded prophecy the Guardians themselves have feared since the dawn of creation... was a zombie apocalypse.
Kinda cliche, don'tcha think?
wherein how does one say "zombie invasion" before it sounds silly?
up to this point we've been focusing more on how cheesy and horror-movie like this is, but here you really are reminded of how fucked up the idea of resurrecting the dead as a zombie army is
TBH, while I liked Johns run, there were some things I disliked. Given that he used Moore's short story as a jumping off point of sorts for some of his own concepts, Ranx the Sentient City and The Children of the White Lobe seemed very minuscule compared to what they were alluded to be.
I never read this run before.
I assumed it was a shitty run because of what I read on /co/.
Fuck all the people that convinced me not to read this until this point. The writing is fantastic.
The next two crossovers after Blackest Night get very... long winded. But it ends on such a great note.
Once of the things which does annoy me admittedly about this run is that once the emotional spectrum aspect of the run comes into full swing...it never really leaves. After a while the idea of them being space cops kind of disappears.
THIS is the danger of trying to fight someone like MM.
The final descent of the Guardians begins here.
wherein there's no stopping it
Also, I'm just gonna be postin' the mix that Johnny Walker, Blue Lantern recommended.
Alright, that's a little funny, right?
But good for you Don. Good for you.
It's a bit of a plot point.
And there Pariah goes.
Well, that was also kinda funny.
I don't think Jim's comfortable with that
AHHHH THAT IS NOT RIGHT!
Hell yeah, Hal.
This is why you live, so you learn Hal.
wherein if there was a band they would be getting back together!
wherein Oa is overrun
Ahh, well, at least you had the courtesy to delted the one with the other DD's name.
You should go ahead, hope that it doesn't get all bloated.
And we're gonna be NEEDING A SECOND THREAD SOON!
Who knew Kryb had a soft side?
wherein this is the last of the thread
