DC Comics' Blackest Night crossover has been a demented monster mash of superheroics and ravenous zombies. Sadly, it looks like DC's do-gooders will prevail over the undead when DC releases its newest mega-event – Brightest Day – this April.
Brightest Day will be a standalone series whose plot tendrils will rope in ancillary DC titles. Unlike the relatively compact eight-issue Blackest Night, however, Brightest Day promises to be a whopping 26-issue biweekly behemoth. Luckily for readers, io9 New Media Master candidate and Blackest Night scribe Geoff Johns will be corralling the new series to friendlier, less-undead-Martian-Manhunter-filled narrative pastures.
