Blackest Night

Basically, the last crossover that Geoff Johns spear-headed that was actually worth reading. A fantastic culmination of long-brewing stories in his Green Lantern. Led directly into Brightest Day, a confused mess that is now, thankfully, out of continuity. Fits into the continuity here.

Notes:

  1. Each of the stories in these issues serves as an introduction to the members of the various Lantern Corps who will play important roles in the crossover.
  2. Placed based on the “Power Levels” specified.
  3. Parallels the immediately preceding issue of Blackest Night.
  4. Utterly inessential – the crossover literally consists of the last two pages of the volume – and included only for completeness’ sake. But a decent read in its own right.
  5. Must take place after Blackest Night: Batman.
  6. Follows on directly from Suicide Squad.
  7. Must occur after Green Lantern #47.
  8. Barry Allen sends a message in Blackest Night #4. and it propagates across the story.
  9. This issue contains a range of stories and deleted scenes from various points in the crossover and is best read after everything else.
