"Across the DC universe-- the dead shall rise. They are driven by the darkness of death itself. They seek to blot out the light of life forever. And they use the resurrected bodies and minds of the dead to do it. They are the Black Lantern Corps. And the shadow of their Blackest Night has fallen on every corner of the DC Universe. In these chilling stories, the Black Lanterns have come for the hearts of an army of the DCU's most powerful heroes and villains. The souls of Superboy and Green Arrow-- Catowman's deadliest enemy and the Atom's closest allies-- the legacies of Starman and the Question-- the weirdest, wildest Western heroes-- the magic of the Phantom Stranger-- the power of Shazam! All will be used to fuel the fire of the Black Lanterns. And the lives of all they touch will be changed forever"--Dust jacket

A series of special tie ins collected together, tied into the larger Blackest Night storyline. As is the case with any collection of multiple artists and writers, some stories work better than others. The stories tied to The Atom, The Question, and Osiris stand out particularly.

This collection is one that puts all of the one-shot stories from Blackest Night from across the DCU in one volume. Excellent reading for the people who want to read the ENTIRE storyline.

This suprisingly thick graphic novel had its highs and lows. From the extremely compelling story in Power of Shazam to the bizarre and irrelevent tale under Weird Western Tales. Rise of the Black Lanterns is an average read consisting of unrelated one-shots that are unneccesary with the continuation of The Blackest Night event. However, I would recommend it only for the ressurection of Osiris.
