Graphic Novel Friday Geoff Johns Blackest Night The Green Lantern

I have turned into a huge Geoff Johns and Green Lantern fan. I saw this and had to pick it up; The Green Lantern and zombies. Could it get any better? Yes, I opened it up and began to get absorbed in it. Check out the particulars on this graphic novel:
“Comics hottest writer Geoff Johns (GREEN LANTERN: SINESTRO CORPS WAR, THE FLASH, ACTION COMICS, JSA) and superstar artist Ivan Reis raise the dead in this hardcover collection of the most anticipated comics event of the year!
Throughout the decades, death has plagued the DC Universe and taken the lives of heroes and villains alike. But to what end? As the War between the different colored Lantern Corps rages on, the prophecy of the Blackest Night descends and it's up to Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps to lead DC's greatest champions in a battle to save the Universe from an army of undead Black Lanterns made up of fallen Green Lanterns and DC's deceased heroes and villains.
This collection of the best-selling epic is the culmination of the events that Geoff Johns has been leading to since he relaunched the Green Lantern franchise in 2006! “
The artwork was the best I have seen from DC Comics, period. That, in and of itself is worth getting this and turning the pages, panel after panel of just amazing work. The dialogue is not too shabby either. The fight scenes are epic and overall I have to say that this is one of the best DC Comic graphic novels I have seen in a while. I tried to take in not just the artwork and story, but the extra material the graphic novel has to offer. The Introduction by Donald DeLine is fun to read and offers an insider’s viewpoint. The director’s commentary was informative, educational and plain fun to read. At the end of the story the extra artwork was just incredible and further displayed the talents of Ivan Reis. Basically this is the real deal from front cover to back, no wasted space or fillers.
I am not a big zombie fan, this is just a great Green Lantern feature written and inked by two of the best in the industry at the top of their game. I would go out of my way for this and enjoy the ride.
