BLACKEST NIGHT #0 TO DEBUT AS DC COMICS’ FIRST-EVER ALL-NEW FREE COMIC BOOK DAY TITLE

This May, DC Comics will debut its first-ever all-new title for Free Comic Book Day: BLACKEST NIGHT #0, the prelude to “Blackest Night,” the biggest comics event of 2009!

Featuring a story by writer Geoff Johns, BLACKEST NIGHT #0 is illustrated by top art teams Ivan Reis & Oclair Albert and Doug Mahnke & Christian Alamy. The issue also features an introductory text page by Johns that sets the stage for new readers and a cover by Ivan Reis.

The issue includes a lead story that leads directly into BLACKEST NIGHT #1, as well as a special guide to the various Corps that have recently emerged as forces in the world of GREEN LANTERN.

BLACKEST NIGHT #0 (JAN090005) is solicited in the January Previews. It is scheduled to arrive in stores on May 2 and has a Final Order Cutoff date of February 26.

Indeed. DC has been missing the ball by only churning out reprints for FCBD. This is certainly a step in the right direction.

Why, I'm drooling in anticipation.

By Lincoln, it looks like DC's marketing arm is actually going to do something right!

I dunno.....isn't the point of free comic book day that it gets new readers involved?

How is something that is integrally tied to a story that's been building for the past couple of years something that will at all interest a non-comic geek? The corpses of Thomas and Martha Wayne and Ted Kord mean nothing to people who aren't already invested in the DCU to begin with......

(they're not spoilers by the way, just the first three big dead I could think of)

It's a bugger for UK readers, as not all shops carry the FCBD stuff!
