So what doesn’t this preview of Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Blackest Knight #1 have going for it? The creative team is just insanely good to an unfair degree: Tim Seeley, Kyle Hotz, Dexter Vines, Danny Miki, Walden Wong, David Baron, and Allen Passaelaqua. It has a cover from the inimitable Lee Weeks, who is on my ”they can draw anything they want forever and I’ll buy it” list. The story is a grim twist on an already grim and beloved story.

And then there are the characters. Oh man, the characters.

A rather emaciated Sinestro is once more the White Lantern, crosses with the powers of the Black Lantern Corps, and who is he leading in a likely suicidal charge? Lobo and Mister Miracle.

Per DC:

Blackest Night is the Next DC Event to Feel the Corruption of the Dark Multiverse!

Tales of the Dark Multiverse: Blackest Night retells the tale of the Green Lantern event that changed the DC Universe forever, only this time the Black Lanterns emerge triumphant! Twenty-three days after the cataclysm, Sinestro, trapped between life and death as a White and a Black Lantern, emerges as the world’s last hope—the Limbo Lantern – against the threat of not only a horde of Black Lantern-infected New Gods, but Darkseid himself, also infested with the Black Lantern’s evil power. 

In order to save the universe or end his life, Sinestro will need the help of some unlikely survivors—Dove, Lobo, and Mister Miracle—all of whom will put their lives on the line to give their world one final chance!
