Green Lantern : A Series Recomendation

I have just finished watching Green Lantern: Emerald Knights on Blu ray, which honestly I rated 3 stars, as it was just okay. A lot of dialog, and the fight scenes were what I liked most. It was good for origins of key characters in the GL series, and a good set up for one series that I would recomend reading for super hero fans. I'm not really a DC comics fanboy, but the series Blackest Night, and the follow up The Brightest Day are worth checking out of you are a fan of super hero storylines with intense stories. The Blackest Night is about a prophesy come true involving an ancient evil that wants to consume all of the life in the GL universe. They manage to try this by resurrecting fallen heroes and villains which try to guilt the living into becoming as empty and unforgiving as them.

That storyline immediately leads into the next storyline of The Brightest Day, in which Sinestro is chosen to wield the white ring.  This is sort of a cleaning up period in which the different colors that represent the known DC universe must join forces to fix what the damage that the Blackest night had wrought on the universe. I did not find this one as enjoyable as the previous series, but it was a nice follow up to it.
