    I have to admit that BL Hal fig looks pretty slick. But I have to say making WL Sinestro an exclusive is pretty damn lame.

    Yeah, I'm disappointed that White Lantern Sinestro is an exclusive myself. I really think that's a figure that should be widely available as part of the main Blackest Night toy line.

    Ah, I'm not that much of a Trekkie. I'm mostly a fan of the movies.

    And apparently Trekkie is a word because Firefox didn't say it was misspelled?

    Blackest Night is proabably my new favorite event story. And this is from a guy who loved Civil War and Secret Invasion. Hands down the most satisfing ending an event has recived in recent memory.

    Thank you, Mister Johns.

    Marvel, take notes.

    Did anyone notice that
    Deadman
    , once they were brought back to "life" still retained their White Lantern Ring, where the other 11 did not?

    I keep forgetting to look at that....

    I would've liked for others to retain the white ring, but if they did it for some, they'd have to do it for all and I hate the idea of Superman with a power ring.

    I noticed that also. Wonder if the others who were resurrected have a white ring.

    On a related note, I swung my a comic book shop today and the dealer had a special offer of selling all 7 Corps rings for $.50 each with a purchase of BN #8. He is also kind enough to toss in the Black Lantern ring for free with the purchase of BN #8. All in all, I got myself a comic and 8 rings for under $10. :D

    Not really. I could live with Batman having a ring because he doesn't already have super-powers. Superman doesn't need a ring to kick your ass.

    I never cared for the idea of giving Wonder Woman Star Sapphire ring.

    I almost have the feeling ti was just so part of the Trinity could do something. Or because it was a chance for fanboys to see WW even more scantily clad than usual.

    I think Johns choose her because She has always been the messenger of peace in Man's world. Plus, she really does love life. Wonder Woman is a warrior by necessity not choice. Plus, it also reinforces the idea that WW is not truly alive. She is a creation of magic and the gods of Olympus.

    And yes, she looks hawt in that costume.

    The first part is the idealogical reasoning.

    The second (bolded part) is the functional reason.

    I know I'm behind on this, but just read BN #8. Didn't expect Deadman to be brought back, that'll be an unteresting plot point. Overall I really loved this mini.

    nice man... DC made another run of the rings and allowed shops to order them again, so they can give them out or sell them as they see fit...

    stores had to order them, and IIRC they came with BN 0 and lots of stores passed on the rings... i may have an extra one somewhere, PM me if you want one...
