Sneak Peek: Brightest Day

Published on January 11th, 2010

What a way to start off the week with DC announcing a new and biweekly / spin- off of BLACKEST NIGHT call BRIGHTEST DAY. Brightest Day will take place after BLACKEST NIGHT in will start in April with a Brightest Day # 0 that will have artwork by Fernando Pasarin. 

Geoff Johns and Peter Tomasi will write the biweekly book. Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps will both have a brightest day banner on their books. Which will let readers know these books are key to the entire Brightest Day story.Same for the new FLASH ongoing series, by Geoff Johns and Francis Manapul in April.


Titans is another series that will fall directly under BRIGHTEST DAY, with Eric Wallace and Fabrizio Fiorentino coming on board, starting with the TITANS: VILLAINS FOR HIRE SPECIAL and then the regular series. Now under a new leadership of none other than Deathstroke, the Terminator. Part of Deathstroke’s team will be Cheshire and Tattooed Man from the INK comic.

  • David Finch will be doing all the covers of all BRIGHTEST DAY.
  • Justice League of America (JLA) will also feature the BRIGHTEST DAY banner, starting with April’s #44.

Like BLACKEST NIGHT it’s an event that happens across the entire DC Universe, affecting a number of titles Dan DiDio told the press. 

Who knows maybe at the end of Blackest Night number 8 there will be White Lanterns that will be bringing peace to the DCU. Brightest Day will be showing how they help clean up the mess that was made in Blackest Night.
