My three favourite characters from DC’s “Blackest Night” event: Wonder Woman, The Flash and Scarecrow. This Yellow Lantern Scarecrow with his hat, mask and jacket looks too good for a 6-inch figure.
The Blackest Night comic is good, but strictly for fans only. If you are not a huge DC Comics follower, then you will have a very hard time keeping up with all the relationships and backstory of all these characters. But if you are a die-hard DC fan, then Blackest Night is an epic crossover of many superheroes and supervillains (Orange Lex Luthor!), especially some of the lesser known ones like Deadman or Firestorm.
I have started reading the follow-up event “Brightest Day”, and the story only gets more interesting from there. In fact, I think I’m a newly converted Aquaman fan now because of Brightest Day.
