The Black Lantern ring giveaway to kick off the Blackest Night event was an immense hit, with demand booming for these chunky stylish collectable black plastic fingerwear, and a call for similar rings to match the different Lantern colours seen in the series went out. And DC listened.

So for every 25 copies of Doom Patrol #4, Booster Gold #26, R.E.B.E.L.S. #10, Outsiders ‘24 and your retailer orders, they can order a bag of fifty Sinestro rings, Agent Orange rings, Indigo Tribe rings and Star Sapphire rings respectively.

And for every 50 copies of Justice League of America#39, Blackest Night #5 and Adventure Comics #4 sees you with a bag of fifty Red Lantern rings, Green Lantern rings and Blue Lantern rings, also respectively.

What do you guys think? It'll get me an orange ring in the bag easily, but I'll have to buy R.E.B.E.L.S. #10 to get the ring I really want (who's got something positive to say to sell me on it?). The only part that really bugs me is the way the rings are being every two weeks, so they won't all be in till the end January, and by then won't most of the relevant issues be outdated?

What’s blue and gold and bloody all over? This BLACKEST NIGHT tie-in issue!

I'm confused.

I thought Ted was kinda/sorta resurrected during Booster Gold?

He had to sacrifice himself again to fix the timeline.

Well, he had to give Max something to shoot. Or possibly this is something else entirely? He wasn't wearing that costume when he died.

the aftermath had a shadowy figure going into one of Teds blue beetle warehouses and laughing in his trademark style, in subsequent interviews it was said that this was meant to be Ted.
Now what I think (hope) is going on is this: Theres two Teds, the one shot by Max and who is considered by everyone to be dead, and the Ted that somehow escaped his death and was shown at the end of the blue and gold arc and is displaced from time.
This will all lead into a massive comfrontation where both beetles kick zombie Teds ass.

Wait... if the Rings can regenerate tissue, then why are all the Black Lanterns' skin decomposing?

I suppose you could say it's to look frighting. These undead do seem to gain power from strong emotions like fear, and it would be pretty tricky to have a series where everyone comes back as sexy violet energy zombies.

I'll definitely be getting the Orange, Blue and Green rings but the rest, I dunno, I'm not exactly gonna buy a title just for the ring.

I picked up a Black Lantern ring when I bought BN #2, and I wore it all day :).

Problem is, I buy my comics online, and I doubt my LCS, despite having an internet-side of their business, will offer to sell the rings by post. But having said that, I'd really really really love a full set.

Correct me if I'm wrong...

Doesn't the Indigo Tribe use those staff things, not rings?

REBELS is fun comics. I like it- mainly for Mr. Magnificent Bastard, Vril Dox. (What is it about the Brainiac family that makes them all insanely awesome?)

Wait what

I may be missing something, but when are these rings in stores exactly? November? I seem to have completely missed the black ring, which is okay I guess, but I really want an indigo ring durnit.

Pffftt, Indigo. Indigo's just a purple wannabe. It's all about the Sinestro Corps and Violet Lanterns.

Fear and Love REPRESENT.

hmm I really want all of them, but I know my LCS won't be ordering that many Comics for all of those titles listed, I hope DC releases them in a set separately I know they already have that Justice league prop but the metal rings aren't intended to be worn and $250 is way out of my budget
