Happy New Year, Source readers. As you can imagine, we've spent the morning sifting through emails and getting our system used to waking up at a reasonable hour. But there's little time for that. Time to shake off the vacation rust and get rolling, as stuff is always happening in the DCU. And by now, you're well aware of a little thing called BLACKEST NIGHT, right? Having read #6, I'd imagine you're chomping at the bit for any and all things related to the event. Well, GREEN LANTERN #50 is coming on 1/27. Dubbed by GREEN LANTERN Associate Editor Adam Schlagman as "BLACKEST NIGHT #6.5," the issue is a perfect bridge between the issues, and full of some major turning points for our heroes. But enough of my banter. We gave GREEN LANTERN writer Geoff Johns a buzz for more on the issue. Take it away, Geoff: "Picking up right where BLACKEST NIGHT #6 left off, things get a whole lot brighter in GREEN LANTERN #50 as Hal finds himself side-by-side with the newest Corps recruits.  But not all of them are exactly suited for the job.  And none of them are prepared for the power of the Black Lantern Spectre.  Doug Mahnke has done some of the most amazing work of his career on this issue." And, because it's not a Monday morning post without some cool art, here's an amazing pair of pages from Mahnke. Nice way to kick off 2010, huh?
