Blackest Night Series by Geoff Johns
Before Blackest Night (Green Lantern) reading order!
Geoff Johns has identified the series' central theme as emotion. Various other limited series and tie-ins, including an audio drama from Darker Projects, were published. The storyline was first mentioned at the conclusion of the " Sinestro Corps War " in Green Lantern vol. According to the prophecy, the two existing Corps would be joined by five new ones, each driven by a specific emotion and empowered by a specific color of the emotional spectrum, leading to a "War of Light" that would subsequently destroy the universe. The standalone, self-titled miniseries consists of Blackest Night 0 and eight monthly issues. Van Sciver and Ivan Reis created many of the designs for this storyline. After touching the battery, Saarek reports that their presence has awoken something.
