Published on July 2nd, 2009

So Captain America is back… or is he? I guess you just have to wait untill this week’s POW (Pick of the week) podcast to find out!  But let’s talk about the next big event this summer in comics that is over five years in the making- Geoff Johns’ Blackest Night where “The Dead Shall Rise.”

IGN has posted an interview with DC Direct discussing their plans for the upcoming “Blackest Night” toy line, including a look at waves 1-4 and even a few spoilers….

Now before  you read any more of this post, WATCH OUT THERE ARE SOME MAJOR SPOILERS!!! So look away if you like surprises.

Ok, here goes:

  • The line up for the figures  is collaboration with the Editor, the DC Direct team and Geoff Johns.
  • They are still working on some more Blackest Night Figures as later waves are in the planning stages.
  • It does not look like there will be a Hal Jordan and Sinestro figure. The only Hal will be a convention exclusive.
  • It sounds like they are working on a 1:1 Mogo figure (SEXY)!
