I love Blackest Night, but I am tired of everyone assuming there will be a white lantern (or lanterns). It's too easy to go there--I think Geoff Johns is a better writer than that. Infact -- If there's a white lantern, I'll frickin, wear white underpants (tighty whiteys), and run down the street -- That's how positive I am that isn't going to happen. It's too predictable and he's quite good at throwing curve balls. I could see white energy from the various rings being combined, but I just don't see an actual white lantern or lanterns.

Do you still have the other rings available?

So... who's gonna need a ring?

;)

Check out the Secret Headquarters (my store) website! It's a pretty lame website, but I did it myself, so tough noogies

Listen to WOXY.com, it's the future of rock-n-roll!


I love how DC assumes we all buy/read our comics on new comics day. The DCU blog has already revealed the end of Blackest Night #7. Sigh...

Can we get pictures, Larfleeze?
Easier if I give you the link, I think - and it's a payoff from Rebirth...

No, I meant of him running down the street in his tighty whiteys.
I just read Blackest Night #7.

I'm very disappointed.

I expected more out of Geoff Johns.

You can wait until it's around 40-degrees to run down the street...we'll wait.

Don't give up on him yet, my friend. I'm sure he'll surprise us. Heavens, even the identity of the first White Lantern was a shocker. Who'd've seen that coming?

I agree. Serial fiction is a tricky business. The White Lantern thing in a certain sense is *too* obvious -- there are plot elements that point toward it, as well as a host of thematic and cultural elements that point in the same direction. So much so that telling the story *without* a White Lantern could wind up unsatisfying, which is just as big a trap as an obvious ending. So Johns's problem was: How can he take this element of the conclusion that everyone expects, and *still* make it surprising?

And with the ending of BN #&, I think he did just that.

Still, though -- bad news about your pants. Any particular place you're thinking of putting that White Lantern ring?

Oof. Sorry that was spoiled for you, BattMatt. Whenever I'm a day or two late picking up my comics, I avoid most comics news sites like the plague.
