A war has been brewing between the different colored Lantern Corps--the Green fighting the Yellow, the Red trying to destroy all, the Blue attempting to broker peace between the tribes. However, the real battle is yet to come: the undead Black Lanterns are coming and seemingly nothing can stop them. Putting aside old vendettas, it's up to Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps to lead DC's greatest champions as well as their deadliest foes in a battle to save the Universe from an army of the dead.

The DC Essential Edition series of graphic novels highlights the best standalone stories the medium has to offer featuring comics' greatest characters. These trade paperback editions focus on the easiest entry points DC has in its vast library, with seminal, groundbreaking tales that transcend the printed page. Start with the Essentials.

This collects GREEN LANTERN #43, BLACKEST NIGHT #0-8, and two stories from UNTOLD TALES OF THE BLACKEST NIGHT #1.
