Writer Peter J. Tomasi and hot artist Patrick Gleason expand on the War of the Light as the evil Black Lanterns descend on all of the Corps throughout the universe in this must-read BLACKEST NIGHT tie-in that features key plot points that are essential to enjoying the storyline to its fullest. Just when things couldn't look any darker, Green Lanterns Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, John Stewart join the rest of the GL Corps in the fight to preserve the Central Power Battery and the planet Oa from being consumed by the Black Lanterns. This deadly battle threatens to engulf not only the Corps, but the Universe itself!

Books reviews
This hardcover edition is much like the two first books (speaking about the edition). It's a big black book with some extra features at the end like alternative cover gallery and some character sketches. The presentation is good.

Regarding the story, is not as great as the main books, but it does have cool moments. The bad thing of reading first "BN" and "BN: GL" is that you already knows about the end of Green Lantern Corps #42. Nevertheless, is was reaaaaaally cool!.

As I said on my title, this is very good to be only a tie-in. I did took out one star out because I don't like much Patrick Gleason's art. He's drawings are ok for books with less importance such as "To Be a Lantern" or "Recharge", but for something as big as Blackest Night... Well, it doesn't work quite well. Ivan Rise and Doug Manhke did a TERRIFIC job on the main books. I couldn't feel but a bit dissapointing with this one.

Other than that, this is a good book. Fun read...
If you read this alone you will be lost, but this was a fun read to have in accordance to Blackest Night. Guy Gardner as a Red Lantern was awesome, and then battling the Black Lanterns was a great as well. Get this book of your reading Blackest Night!
The writing and art in this collection is excellent. However, it's legitimacy is undermined by (admittedly small) ret-cons present in the main Blackest Night story arc. It's really disappointing because it shows that Geoff Johns doesn't even pay attention to what the other people at DC are writing (even when it's directly connected to his story).
I got all of the Blackest Night books not only because I love DC, but because of the zombie angle also. Once you start, you just can't stop with the Blackest Night books. Just make sure you read Green Lantern: Blackest Night first! Nothing else will make sense until you read that first.
Completes my "Blackest Night" trade paperbacks. Outstanding story!
Great addition to the Blackest Night storyline.
You really need this + Green Lantern: Blackest Night + the Blackest Night miniseries...at least, to get the full story.
A great collection of all the comics that made up the collective Green Lantern Corps: Blackest Night. It's a nice addition to any collection and it's a nice hard cover book to boot.
