Blackest Night Prophesied 23 Years Ago?!?
Although he's largely known as the master storyteller behind Watchmen, V for Vendetta, From Hell, Miracleman, Batman: The Killing Joke, Swamp Thing, Tom Strong, Promethea, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and numerous other works, Alan Moore also contributed some rather unique tales to some of the cornerstone characters of the DC Universe. One of those stories, "Tygers" from the Tales of the Green Lantern Corps Annual #2, introduced a chilling prophecy of doom for the very Guardians of the Universe and their corps of galactic policemen. So here we are 23 years later and I'm wondering if this is the predication of doom now set to befall the Guardians and the Green Lantern Corps?
The planet Ysmault, the Daxamite Green Lantern Sodam Yat, the sentient city of Ranx... we have seen all of these pieces of the prophecy... will OA soon lie in ruins too?
And does it surprise anyone that such an anticipated event such as Blackest Night has a touch of the genius of Alan Moore?
