#1 Posted by AgentOfAnarchy (134 posts) - - Show Bio

Hey, so I really want to read the blackest night but I cant find a complete list of graphic novels that cover preludes, the events and afterwords. Also some on the internet say read half of one book, hten half of anouther and so on. Is this really necissary as it seems awfull confusing. If it is any help I have green lantern secret origins and the hardcover blackest night. Any help is appreciated.

@danhimself: 
Thank you, I will compare the issues to the issues that are featured in the graphic novels and use the power of deduction xD
If the issues such as the green lantern issues are mixed up in the reading order (If that makes sense) then why do they bunch them all together in the graphic novels :/ dang nabbits dc, why do you confuse me so.

@danhimself: Wouldn't happen to have a nifty list like this for Final Crisis would you? Sinestro Corps. War is the most recent thing I've read =/
