It’s been, what, three-and-a-half months since Blackest Night #8? If you’re missing the cold, gray touch of the Black Lanterns, well, looks like you don’t have long to wait. DC Comics offered up this teaser image today on their official blog The Source, with no comment other than the subject title: “What is October’s RETURN OF THE BLACK LANTERNS?”
As anyone reading Brightest Day knows, those characters — Hawkman, Firestorm, Martian Manhunter, Deadman, Hawkgirl and Aquaman — might have come back from the dead in Blackest Night #8, but they didn’t come back quite right. Apparently very not quite right, based on that image, though we don’t know exactly what it’s from — a future cover of Brightest Day, or something else? — or anything else at this point. It’s a David Finch cover, so Brightest Day seems like a good bet (and boy, he’s had a newsworthy day, huh?) Still, this sounds like something we’ll hear more about next week in San Diego. But feel free to speculate!
