This week Blackest Night #1 is out.  Participating retailers will be giving you a chance to join the Black Lantern Corps when you pick up the issue.  How is this possible?  What am I talking about? 

When you buy the issue, you can a FREE Black Lantern ring with the issue.  According to Rich Johnston, they are a higher quality than what DC has given out in the past with certain Green Lantern issues.

Don't just assume you'll be able to get one just by showing up at your local comic shop.  I would suggest calling them in advance and find out if they're getting them, how many are they getting and (possibly) could they hold one for you.  I'm sure even though DC would frown upon it, some retailers might try to sell them (whether it's in store on or ebay). 

Good luck and happy hunting.

Sadly, I put it back. Although I work there, I won't officially take a ring until I buy it on Wednesday or Thursday.

I really hope they are at my store, but i doubt it, the store is small and in England so it never gets anything like this :(

i just called my LCS and they have them!  i am SO excited for that! the guy that works there told me that they are of a MUCH higher quality than the rings that DC usually gives away (like the Green Lantern ring and Flash ring that was given away at conventions for the last few years).  this is going to be AWESOME!

#9 Posted by DEGRAAF (7869 posts) - - Show Bio

lol i called my LCS and they said they are pretty sure they are getting them in but wasnt sure if they were being sold with the comic or if they were of any better quality as the "crappy" ones sold not to long ago. that is how they described them

Same here man...ever since Geoff Johns brought back Hal the series just keeps getting better & better. What with the Sinestro Corps war, the expansion of other Corps and now with the Black Hand Corps having former friends being members.

I've already got one on hold for me along with a copy of Blackest Night. I also got to try on the Promo Ring my LCS had, I wasn't allowed to take it with me, it was just for customers to try on and feel the power of The Black Lantern Corps! Best of all...it can change size to fit your finger. I mean I have quite a large middle finger and when I put it on I thought the Ring wasn't going to fit because it was so tight but then suddenly it loosened up and I was like "Hell, yes! I HAVE THE POWER!!!" Then of course I put the Ring next to my temple and pretended to do this so that it'd "work better" (because you know in the comics you gotta be dead in order for them to work):

Needless to say those Rings are awesome! I can't wait until I get mine Wednesday!

Tomorrow 11 am... I'm gonna be in the shop picking up my stuff... Bl#1 Bl Tales of the corp and Titans #15... I'll be ultra heated if I dont get a ring...

@Bruce Vain:  I never thought they should've gotten rid of Hal for 10 years. He is clearly the character that gives the series life.
#36 Posted by Bruce Vain (1869 posts) - - Show Bio
@Futureman:
I'm in total agreement with you . For a long time I didn't like Kyle Rayner cause he wasn't the Green Lantern to me. Hal was the true Green Lantern, but then I started to like Kyle when Hal was gone.
 
But Hal's back and better then ever. =)

The basic ring is pretty cool, but if you feel up for some modifying you can step it up from pretty cool to awesome.
First up, put a drop of superglue in the gap that allows the ring to bend around thicker fingers. Hold it shut (and with the ends lining up) for a bit and the glue will get a good hold. Leave it for a while and it'll be a proper ring. However, before you do this, put it on and see if it can be held shut over your finger without it being too tight. My fingers are about average, I think, and it fits fine.
Next, take a simple silver marker and carefully color the raised logo. It's fairly easy to do it without marking the rest, just takes a feather touch.
The finished product is, as promised, awesome

I actually didn't get one.  My comic shop didn't order them. DC is making shop owners PAY for them to GIVE away.  With the economy the way it is, I don't blame my store for not ordering it.  Buuuut if anyone has a spare you'd like to send my way...our mailing address is on the HELP page...

As you can see, it's WELL worth it.
Just make sure it'll fit you after you glue the ring shut. Coloring the logo isn't hard, just use fairly fine tipped marker. I accidently hit the rim once or twice with the marker, but I scraped it off with my fingernail.
