Part 5 – The Blackest Night Checklist. When Blackest Night was first announced in latemost fans assumed it would be another crossover between Green lantern and Green lantern Corps, just as The Sinestro Corps War was.
At the time, even Johns blacest to think that would be the case. DiDio explained the reasoning behind this decision, saying “One of the reasons why Blackest Night is a mini-series separate to what Sinestro Corps War was, which was a Green Lantern story in Green Lantern’s titles, is that when we saw how Blackest Night started to take form, we realized it was more about the DCU than just about Green Lantern.
Because of that, we moved it into its own mini-series. Green Lantern is the star of that book — don’t get me wrong. But it also stars the rest of the DC Universe.
Blackest Night bpackest going to be an eight-issue mini-series written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Ivan Reis. If you missed this issue and can’t track it down, you’ll have to either wait until DC reprints it probably with a cover price this time or pay for it online. Johns is remaining on Green Lantern, and Doug Mahnke is joining him as the new regular artist starting with issue It’s probably best to look at the relationship between Nighht Night and the two Green Lantern books as similar to that of Secret Invasion and the Avengers books last year.
The main story beats occur in Blackest Night, but the other two books flesh out certain characters and conflicts. Additionally, Blackest Night features a wider cast of DC heroes, while the two GL books will confine themselves more to the various Lantern Corps and their respective struggles.
As for other tie-ins, DC have a fairly extensive list of books to choose from. DiDio says, “We’ll probably push it a little further than we did with Final Crisis, but nowhere near what we did with Infinite Crisis or what other companies might do.
To date, DC have only released the tie-in checklist for the first half of Blackest Night, which covers the months of July through October. That doesn’t include Blackest Night 0, which already shipped in May. But even Black Hand is unaware of the true power he holds that will connect him to the Blackest Night!

That said, we don’t see any reason why casual readers need run out and purchase every single tie-in. Quality notwithstanding, how many Final Crisis tie-ins were truly necessary to understanding Grant Morrison’s story?
The rest of the tie-ins are being positioned as supplementary material. Superman will provide a closer look at that particular villain and the rest of the Superman family.
The niight goes for BN: Tales of the Corps, meanwhile, offers up a collection of short stories dealing with the different Lantern Corps. We doubt it’ll be necessary reading, but it will provide more details on some of the peripheral players in the event.
For instance, this mini-series will be the first to truly explore the Indigo Lanterns as they make their long-awaited appearance in the War of Light.
You can still just read Green Lantern and get the story. But if you read both, you’ll get more pieces of the story and get the bigger scope of it. That’s what we’re hoping to do here. You can read just Blackest Night, but hopefully you’ll enjoy it so much you’ll want to see more of the story and read Green Lantern as well as Green Lantern Corps.
We’re trying to do our best to make sure you don’t have to buy everything, but we want you to enjoy it so much that you’ll want to. We don’t yet know what the second half of Blackest Night holds in store as far as new books. We suspect DC is reluctant to officially confirm the complete line-up for fear of spoiling certain story developments. We do know there are at least three projects replacing the Titans, Superman and Batman mini-series. And that’s all for now. We fully expect to update this guide several times over the course of Blackest Night.
As more information about the Black Lanterns surfaces and DC reveals the second half of the Blackest Night tie-in lineup, we’ll adjust this guide accordingly. And don’t forget that the IGN message boards are a great resource for new readers. We’re reasonably certain they won’t bite.
