DC Comics: ‘Blackest Night’ Leads To ‘Brightest Day’

DC Comics is kicking off another week full of announcements in a big way by first outlining the mini-series to not only follow on from the acclaimed Blackest Night, but also define the DC Universe going forward. Much more about this mini-series and its related titles should come to light (pun intended) with DC’s April Solicitations, which you’ll be able to check out right here on Pop Culture Zoo next Monday. Here’s a run-down of what’s being announced and keep checking back as we will be updating this throughout the day!

Following Blackest Night will be a new mini-series entitled Brightest Day. This will be a 26 issue, bi-weekly mini written by Geoff Johns and Peter Tomasi, with the art for it’s 0 issue being handled by Fernando Pasarin. This series has been referred to in DC meetings as DCU: Rebirth, so expect it’s scope to encompass the breadth of the DC Universe. In fact, a number of titles, most prominently Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps, will carry “Brightest Day” banners on their covers to signify their importance to the story.

Says Dan DiDio of the mini-series: “…I’m happy to announce that for the DCU, after the BLACKEST NIGHT will come a BRIGHTEST DAY this April. A biweekly, 26-issue series, kicking off with BRIGHTEST DAY #0. We have a number of wonderful artists slated to contribute to the book, which we’ll be announcing soon.”

 

 

 

The first title announced to carry the “Brightest Day” banner is the new ongoing Flash title. This title was no secret, yet little has been revealed about it apart from the creative team. Again, from Dan DiDio:

“We’ll be launching the new FLASH ongoing series, by Geoff and Francis Manapul in April with a BRIGHTEST DAY banner, and there will be several more titles utilizing it come May and June. With this book, Geoff and Francis are really bringing Barry Allen back into the spotlight and cementing him as the premiere Flash in the DCU in his own monthly. It’s no secret that I’ve been waiting a long time to see this. I’ve always been a huge Barry fan, and I can say that Geoff and Francis are reinvigorating him as a character in much the same way Geoff did with Hal Jordan. Should be fun.”

 

 

 

 

The Next title announced to fall under the “Brightest Day” banner is Titans which has previously been mentioned as targeted for some big changes. Writer Eric Wallace and artist Fabrizio Fiorentino take over the regular series following the upcoming TITANS: VILLAINS FOR HIRE SPECIAL. The two will have the Titans longtime foe Deathstroke recruit a new group of Titans comprised of villains.

As far as who may be a part of the new team, Dan DiDio says, “Seeing as how the creative team is coming off a great mini-series like INK, it’s not a surprise that the Tattooed Man will be a member of Deathstroke’s Titans team. [And] it wouldn’t be much of a Deathstroke team if there wasn’t a femme fatale in the mix, and we’ve definitely got one – with ties to the original Titans, to boot – in Cheshire. We’ll save the full roster for a later date.

 

 

 

Next up, Dan and Alex revealed that April’s Justice League of America #44 would not only carry the “Brightest Day” banner, but would also see new members joining the team. The cover seems to herald a crossover with Justice Society of America which makes me wonder if the teams may be swapping some members. Dan did not reveal anything else about this particular issue so we will all have to pick up issue #44 to find out!

To wrap things up Dan and Alex also revealed that David Finch, newly exclusive to DC, will be the cover artist for all 26 Brightest Day issues. They also promised more Brightest Day news as well as further announcements regarding DCU 2010 throughout the week. Stay tuned to Pop Culture Zoo as we bring you the latest!

SPOILERS ****** ***** Chooses A Lantern?

WARNING: ‘BLACKEST NIGHT’ SPOILERS ABOUND!!!

Earlier this year there was much ado about DC Direct revealing the identity of two dead heroes turned Black Lantern from Geoff Johns’ epic mini-series Blackest Night. It looks like they aren’t done with the spoilers. In the November solicitations out today, there is a blacked out image labeled as Wonder Woman included in the Blackest Night Series 4 Action Figure wave and featuring the following text:

“This series includes Wonder Woman, who is surprisingly transformed by the happenings of the Blackest Night (Read the comics to learn more!)”

The image is below. Even thought the figure is in silhouette, you can make out what appear to be bands on the legs and arms, which would be consistent with a Black Lantern uniform. Neither the Blackest Night #5 nor the Wonder Woman #38 give any indication of any change severe enough to warrant Diana becoming a Black Lantern. It’s possible, much like Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Tempest and The Spectre, that she gets transformed with the mini-series and the change of status quo will appear in Wonder Woman #39. Just as likely, though, is Wonder Woman taking another power ring. Or, is it possible that this might actually be Hippolyta, Diana’s mom and the Wonder Woman of World War II? No matter what happens to the Amazon it will certainly be exciting to read. Study the image below and let us know what you think.

Written by Brian Azzarello
Art by Phil Noto
Sketchbook material and variant cover by Rags Morales
Cover by JG Jones

Doc Savage returns to DC Comics…and comes face-to-fist with the Batman! Superstar scribe Brian Azzarello (100 BULLETS, JOKER) and the breathtaking art of Phil Noto combine to shine the first light on a shadowy new version of the DC Universe, where the thugs run rampant, corruption runs deep, and even heroes can’t be trusted! Doc Savage, the Man of Bronze, hates what he’s heard about the connections between a grisly murder and Gotham City’s violent new vigilante. But the Batman can’t abide do-gooders getting in his way…and his .45 just won’t stay in its holster!

Be here for this vital prologue to an upcoming 6-issue miniseries by Azzarello and Rags Morales (IDENTITY CRISIS), which will pull back the curtain to reveal the full width and breadth of DC’s new pulp-influenced universe. This special issue also features sketchbook material by Rags Morales that will show you just what you’re in for! You might think you’re ready – but you’re very, very wrong…

Retailers please note: This issue will ship with two covers. For every 10 copies of the Standard Edition (with a cover by JG Jones), retailers may order one copy of the Variant Edition (with a cover by Rags Morales). Please see the Previews Order Form for more information.

CHILL (Custom)THE CHILL HC
Written by Jason Starr

“Starr has a hard-edged style that is clean, cold and extremely chilling.”
— Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times

It’s summer in New York, but a “chill” has settled over the city – a serial killer is on the loose, and the ritualized murders are becoming increasingly sadistic. The NYPD and the FBI have a suspect: a gorgeous young woman named Arlana. The only problem is that every witness provides a different description of her. None of it makes any sense to anyone except Martin Cleary, a beaten-down Irish cop from Boston with a whopper of a secret in his past – and a past that may go back a century or two . . .

When supernatural artifacts from the Homelands begin surfacing in the modern world, it falls to Cinderella, Fabletown’s best kept (and best dressed) secret agent to stop the illegal trafficking. But can Cindy foil the dark plot before Fabletown and its hidden, exiled inhabitants are exposed once and for all? And how does her long lost Fairy Godmother factor into the equation?

Whether she’s soaring through clouds, deep-sea diving, or cracking jaws, Cindy travels from Manhattan to Dubai and hooks up with a handsome, familiar accomplice who may be harboring secret motives of his own. Meanwhile, trouble brews back home in Fabletown when Cindy’s overworked, underappreciated assistant decides to seize control of The Glass Slipper, Cindy’s exclusive shoe boutique.

DESIGNED BY DUSTIN NGUYEN
SCULPTED BY JACK MATHEWS

Diana Prince re-appears as an Ame-Comi heroine!

Sure to be as popular as the first Ame-Comi version of Wonder Woman, this figure features the Amazon Princess emerging from battle, with an axe in one hand and a Gorgon’s severed head in the other.

As a special added feature, Wonder Woman’s hair can be worn in two styles – up or down!

The limited-edition, non-articulated, approximately 8.75” PVC statue comes with a base, is packaged in a 4-color window box with J-hook and is manufactured to order.
