REVIEW: Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Blackest Night #1

Written by Eric Cahill

Out this week is Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Blackest Night, a monstrously named one shot that explores one of those “what if” type scenarios where someone fucks up some major event and cool shit ensues. Usually the world ends, new costumes are designed, and undoubtedly a few adults fondly half remember these as the best stories they read as young adults (Wolverine Lord of the Vampires FTW BTW).

Nothing is certain and we can have actual endings! Bleak ones too! {Sigh} Excuse me while I go and dig out some old DC Summer annuals & work on my ‘Citizen Wayne’ cosplay…

FIRST LOOK: Green Lantern: Blackstars #2

“It’s my cruelest portrayal of Superman that I’ve ever done, that makes him out to be the worst he can possibly be. I’m hoping people will really dig it, because it’s almost a roast of modern comics, including my own.” –Grant Morrison

Hal Jordan and the Blackstars will stop at nothing to bend the planet to its leader’s whims, and Earth’s greatest heroes pull out all the stops to fight these fascists. Betrayals of cosmic consequence abound! And why is Earth’s sun turning orange? We can only hope Superman figures that one out before it’s too late..

Take a look at some colored pages from Xermanico and Steve Oliff below! Green Lantern: Blackstars #2 is out on December 4th!

REVIEW: Secrets of Sinister House #1

Written by Eric Cahill

Timed for that sweet, sweet holiday-themed release, ‘Secrets Of Sinister House’ is an anthology of all new stories featuring lots of fun work by very talented people. Some are names you see often and others don’t get a lot of spotlight. Whether it’s worth it depends on your appetite for this type of thing. As expected, most of the stories are one off adventures featuring the characters dealing with some kind of Halloween angled threat.
