I started reading Blackest Night from DC in the past week, and so far, its been the only big giant crisis crossover event that hasn’t completely irritated me. Actually, i like it. So i decided to draw this. Hope you like it.

  1. okay

    it is sort of okay.

    what bothers me is the black lanterns.

    the green lanterns are regularly given trouble by normal supervillains.

    the black lanterns should be kind of vulnerable to non-lantern superpowers.

    yeah, the black lanterns look like their gonna have some serious villain decay soon, with them being so powerful right now. But i do like that instead of just random resurrection, its based on people’s emotional connection. Thats what i’m liking so far.

    I have been reading them and have found the various story lines pretty challenging to follow. Think I’ll wait for the 7 blackest night graphic novels due out this July…. Regarding the art, wow! You are seriously talented!

    Where’s Larfleeze? Also, who are the characters at the top right of the picture & next to Black Hand?

  35. Ulises says:

    Larfleeze, is that the orange lantern? He’s flying in the tippy top right hand corner. And there’s martian manhunter and a ghost next to black hand, as well as some generic lego figures.
