Blackest Friday

DC Comics and ComiXology are apparently starting a Black Friday tradition with Blackest Friday.

Blackest Friday is the publishing company’s 99 cent sale that features the comic books from the 2009-2010 crossover event comic. All of the tie-ins and crossovers from R.E.B.E.L.S. to the special mini-series comics like Blackest Night: Titans are included in this mega-sale. In fact, this sale moves beyond the hit series into the bi-weekly follow up comic Brightest Day, however the Brightest Day tie-ins are not included.

Although one is yet to be announced, Johns posted to Twitter that he will be writing a brand new Aquaman series, with Aquaman #1 coming out later this year. You can check out this tweet below.

Death Is Coming to ‘Action Comics’ This Fall

The Geeks of Doom   |  @   |

By Jedi of Doom

Comic book fans will be surprised this October with the release of Action Comics #894.

The issue will have a guest appearance by the character Death from Neil Gaiman‘s beloved Vertigo comic book series Sandman.

According to DC Comics, Action Comics writer Paul Cornell thought of the idea himself to bring Death into the issue and then got approval by Gaiman, who he said has been supportive of bringing Death and Lex Luthor face to face. This big move is part of a huge story arc for Action Comics where Lex Luthor will not only go against people he is used to, but other characters he has never met before.

DC had very limited information about the storyline, but they did reassure that way they use Death “will be true to the spirit of what has gone before.”

Geoff Johns Talks ‘Young Justice’ And All New Aqualad

In Geoff Johns‘ most recent post on DC’s The Source Blog, in which he reveals the photos of the live-action Blue Beetle test footage, Johns also talked about the upcoming Young Justice project and the debut of an all new Aqualad. He reveals that not only will this new Aqualad, who will be named Jackson Hyde, be a main character in the upcoming television show, but he will also play a large role in the current Brightest Day title.

If that is not enough information for you, then how about we talk specifics. Johns also revealed that the Aqualad character will be introduced in the Mera and Aquaman storyline in issue #4 and will “come into his own” in issue #10. Both of those issues are a good set up for the show considering they are going to be released before the show hits the airwaves. The best way to understand what kind of character Jackson is is to quote John’s, and here is how he describes the all new Aqualad:

Comic Review: Blackest Night #8

Blackest Night #8Blackest Night #8
Writer: Geoff Johns
Penciller: Ivan Reis
Inker: Oclair Albert & Joe Prado
Colorist: Alex Sinclair
Letterer: Nick J Napolitano
DC Comics
Price: $3.99
Released: March 31, 2010

Well, Blackest Night has finally reached its conclusion, and it’s been a fun ride. Issue #8 is the final issue of the series, so of course we get the big battle, the resolution, and the set up for the next batch of stories.

Was the story as a whole a success? Yes, very much so. A multitude of great character moments: the joy of the Flash as a Blue Lantern; the next great buddy comedy comic in Larfleeze/Lex Luthor: The Orange Couple; Kyle Rayner and the ghosts of dead girlfriends past; and any ton of other things I can’t think of off the top of my head.

I did have some problems with the series as a whole, namely that it did go on for a bit too long (I think it could have stood to be 6 issues instead of 8) and I never felt like I got a good handle on Nekron as the main villain. I wish more time had been spent setting him up and explaining who he is rather than just trotting him out and saying he wants to kill everything. Maybe I need to read the whole story again to get a better feel for his story.

WonderCon 2010: Geeks of Doom Coverage

Geeks of Doom Invades WonderCon 2010

I’m currently sitting on a flight bound for San Francisco where I will provide Geeks of Doom’s coverage of WonderCon 2010 — thus kicking off convention season, which is far more exciting than baseball and football season by default of it being acceptable for those in attendance to dress like The Batman and/or Slave Leia.

“Ridiculously excited” would be an obvious understatement.

Of course if you can’t make it to the convention this year, you can always follow @geeksofdoom on Twitter for all the latest news from WonderCon 2010 and also live vicariously through my own experience by following me at @tched.

This year the show is chock full o’ DC Comics panels — many of which feature new Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. With the Blackest Night arc coming to a close, I’m extremely curious to hear what’ll be revealed about the next big DCU event, Brightest Day.

There’s also plenty of panels with creators and actors from this summer’s big movies — including Kick Ass, Prince of Persia, Resident Evil: Afterlife. There’s also some great stuff in TV with BBC showing the premiere of Doctor Who: Season 5 and a panel for NBC’s Chuck.

2010-02-17_ringsDC ComicsBlackest Night Ring promotion went so well last year, they’ve introduced two new rings that tie into their Brightest Day event.

Special Editions of The Flash and Green Lantern rings have been released, and you can get them FREE when you purchase The Flash #1 and Green Lantern #53 over at Things From Another World.

Head on over to TFAW’s Brightest Day Rings page, and you’ll see two options: individual issues without the rings, or choose the comics-with-rings options. The rings are free, but you will pay a little extra for shipping and handling (most U.S. customers will see a $.50 to $1.00 increase), because the rings can’t ship in a flat package.

2010-02-11-aquamanThe end of DC’s Blackest Night is fast approaching, and with the end of one story comes the beginning of the next [read What Happens After Blackest Night? ‘Brightest Day’].

Now, we’re starting to get more information about that next story, Brightest Day. Today on DC’s The Source blog, the company released an image that will have fans of a certain undersea monarch jumping for joy (check it out here at right; click for larger full view).

The cover for Brightest Day #2, drawn by David Finch, shows what looks like a reborn Aquaman, sporting his classic look, and facing his own shadow. Brightest Day co-writer Geoff Johns expounded on what Aquaman’s appearance means for the upcoming story.
