Interesting. I like both of the designs for Black Lightning and Blue Devil. I wonder why this pairing was chosen.

I'm REALLY liking how they both look here.

DC's going crazy. Hitting me left and right with these comic books. Having me see Black and Blue.

Crazy!

They just announced that Action is getting an annual if it makes you feel better, but I don't see him being in DCU presents anytime soon

Don't like that they de-aged him. Too similar to Static in age and powers now. I am excited about the arc anyways.

Even liking both of these characters (and I do) I think this is yawntastic. The Blue Devil design is scarier looking, which I could believe more from Hollywood (although...Hellboy...<shrugs>).

I am digging this to the maximus

#15 Posted by Mega_spidey01 (3078 posts) - - Show Bio

maybe this will be DC's version of luke cage & iron fist.

#16 Posted by WaveMotionCannon (5166 posts) - - Show Bio

Im checking for this, 2 of my favorites. I miss the old Paris Cullins version of BD but this has promise.

#17 Posted by ARMIV2 (8283 posts) - - Show Bio

Nice, and I'm really diggin' that art.

#18 Posted by _Black (2302 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm hopefully optimistic about this.

#19 Posted by Greenflashlight (183 posts) - - Show Bio

After reading it and looking at the new designs I am really pumped about a Black Lightning/Blue Devil comic book

I hope they do not call it Black and Blue. For some reason I think it will be like

"He is a no nonsense by the book cop protecting the city against anarchy, name Black Lightning but he will be shocked by his new partner

a wacky, fun loving, devilishly clever rooky name Blue Devil

Can these 2 get along to save the city from certain doom find out next month in Black and Blue"

That is what I am afraid of I really hope it will be good

I'd read/watch the hell out of that....

@BlackArmor:Yep I would have it added to my pull list as well

#23 Posted by _slim_ (13054 posts) - - Show Bio

It's an odd pairing that's for sure.

I'm not worried about that, him taking on Demons with BD would suggest that they're stepping up the magical aspects of BL's powers that has been there for a while but was never really expanded on

Black Lightning. WIN!

My wallet cries, but my fandom says YAY!

#26 Posted by Strafe Prower (11887 posts) - - Show Bio

Im actually excited about this! Im just glad BL is back!

#27 Posted by AskaniSon295 (427 posts) - - Show Bio

you know what would be funny if Black Lightning addressed the other Dc characters by their race. White Superman,

White Batman , White Green Lantern, Black Green Lantern, Ginger Green Lantern.

#28 Posted by Onemoreposter (3948 posts) - - Show Bio

Odd pairing. Don't particularly care for either of the designs. I'm interested though with what kinda concept they'll be going with in the book. Will definitely check it out.

LOL...........that Black Green Lantern thing has been done before though.

The more the covers come out, the more I dislike the scratchy art and design.

#32 Posted by Black_Claw (2892 posts) - - Show Bio

Loving that Black Lightning design!

#33 Posted by Thunderscream (1809 posts) - - Show Bio

Adding this to my ever expanding DC pull list....

if not for Uncanny X-Force, i'd be off the Marvel bandwagon for good

Here's a preview from CBR:

I'm pretty excited, but my biggest question is on why they didn't use the same coloring for BL that's on the covers. BL seriously needs more yellow on his costume, because he looks like he's wearing Dick Grayson's old Nightwing outfit in this preview.

i wouldn't mind them getting rid of the blue on the suit and replacing it with yellow. i cant help but think how awesome Blue Devil's costume would look on the Creeper, without the chains and stuff, and in his colors of course.

doesnt he have 2 solo series and a team book? why does he need to be in a book meant to showcase lesser knowns?

#37 Posted by Black_Claw (2892 posts) - - Show Bio

Looking good so far. It would be awesome if a tv show about these two was made.

Blue Devil looks like a frakkin' pimp. I like his redesign almost as much as Etrigan's (almost -- Etrigan's is the bomb, dat armor).
