Four scans from Blackest Night #2, one of which I found particularly interesting.
So dead rising, blah blah, you know the story.
First, what might possibly be a very significant story point:
That's the only person who's resisted the rings so far (up to and including, in this issue, the Spectre).
In terms of page-count, the main thread of this issue would be Mera and No-Longer-Aqualad fighting Zombie-Aquaman (and a couple of No-Longer-Aqualad's Zombie ex-girlfriends). Mera hasn't had much to do in...a very long time, but she's pretty cool here. If the constant rumours of Johns doing something Aqua-related ever come true, this bodes well.
Garth is killed, and joins the Black Lanterns; if nothing else, it's unmistakeably clear that the end of Blackest Night is going to bring back a lot of characters..
