Four scans from Blackest Night #2, one of which I found particularly interesting.

So dead rising, blah blah, you know the story.

First, what might possibly be a very significant story point:

That's the only person who's resisted the rings so far (up to and including, in this issue, the Spectre).

In terms of page-count, the main thread of this issue would be Mera and No-Longer-Aqualad fighting Zombie-Aquaman (and a couple of No-Longer-Aqualad's Zombie ex-girlfriends).  Mera hasn't had much to do in...a very long time, but she's pretty cool here.  If the constant rumours of Johns doing something Aqua-related ever come true, this bodes well.

Garth is killed, and joins the Black Lanterns; if nothing else, it's unmistakeably clear that the end of Blackest Night is going to bring back a lot of characters..

Man Blackest Night has been pretty awesome so far. I really can't find a reason to worry about any characters in this really DYING since I'm sure once Hal gets the White Lantern (I personally gaurantee this is gonna happen) DC'll pull out some Power of Love thing to fix it.

I'm just looking forward to this hopefull shutting the revolving door on death for a while though. It's getting a bit tiring.

As the issue says, Don Hall likely can resist the rings' call because he is at peace with his own demise and doesn't feel any regrets.

Which, of course, is the point of Dove.

Hank Hall is or was Extant right?

Hmm, with all these very confirmed kills, I wonder if Blackest Night will end in resurrection for some.

Awwww. I think it's sweet in a way that Don's perfectly fine with being dead.

That will probably be the key to ending Blackest Night: putting those tormented souls at peace.

I just want to cry a little cause it feels DC's taunting me by bringing back my favorite characters but not how I want them back (alive).

You mean they're not just zombies, they're regenerating zombies?!

Jesus, DC is SCREWED.

Completely random comment, but I feel kind of cheated on Dolphin's costume... She didn't get a redesign, just the hand symbol placed over the left breast, like some boring corporate logo. (On the other hand, having her head exploded and grown back adds some cool points back onto her.)

As much as I want Vic back, he had a really good send off, one of the best in years.

They gave the Spectre a ring? May I request a scan of that, if that's possible?

Didn't Geoff Johns say at comic-con that promotional rings of the different corps would be handed out with each issue of blackest night? If so, did anyone get one?

Why does the spectre always get his ass handed to him in the first couple of chapters of something important. i get that they can't just have him zap and then solve the problem, but do they have to make him so useless all the time

Mera is great! I haven't seen her in a looooong time.
