Black Lanterns were the resurrected forms of various deceased creatures and people that were simultaneously raised from the dead by the will of Nekron, Lord of the Unliving, in order to carry out the Blackest Night and destroy all life and light, so that the universe would go back to being dark and dead again. All Black Lanterns are in some form or another, dead.
Both Corps were temporary for that event. The Black Lanterns functioned until Nekron was defeated, and then a smaller group of them operated into the Brightest Day until being defeated. The White lanterns too only appeared in order to defeat Nekron, and then to renew Swamp Thing during the Brightest Day storyline, after which both Corps. mostly vanished.
Woot! A Black Lantern recruiting poster just in time for Blackest Night!
BN has been soooo good so far, each issue has me waiting in anticipation for the next one. I really liked #2 when Barry and Hal were up against BL: MM and you really got to see how mighty MM is.
Like when he lifted the building and was like, "I'm as powerful as Superman! Why does nobody remember that?!"
And then his mind trick at the end of the issue was awesome.
Anyway, just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that your new recruiting poster is fantastic. I like that you included all the big guns of the BL Corps and the symmetry of the image similar to the triangle and the rays of the BL Corps/Black Hand logo.
No prob. Keep posting the fantastic recruiting posters and I'll keep commenting.
As soon as they DC shows us a little more about the Indigo Tribe you can try to make a poster with them. Since they focus on compassion, I guess that sort of makes them the Red Cross of this whole Battle of Lights or whatever.
