So I'm bringing this back up again. Ever since I read that online capture of the interview with Geoff Johns I've been super excited at the idea of a ring for each issue of Blackest Night.

Yesterday though, when I dropped into my LCS to pick up my stuff, I asked him about it and he didn't have a clue as to what I was talking about. Mentioned he saw nothing in the orders about it. Nothing.

So.... I guess I'm wondering can anyone confirm what John's said? Are actually getting more rings? It'd be awesome if we were, but now I'm not so sure.

It's not surprising that he might not know anything; my own LCS didn't order the rings, had no clue whatsoever that they would really be released, but got a load of them and started handing them out.

It might still happen, one of those sweet bonuses that DC wants to keep under wraps until you go to pick up your stuff.

I spoke to my LCS people and they've heard nothing about other rings.

Maybe your heart is filled with Rage, or you like the throwing up blood prospect, or maybe because they look so Bad-ass or maybe because their symbol is cool... Either way, yes sir the Red Lanterns are indeed great!

I'm surprised. My understanding is that you have to order them, even though they are free.

The guy at my LCS knew all about the Black rings, but assures me that, if there WAS a ring coming with the next few issues, he would HAVE to know already, since they would have been on the order forms. He maintains that there are NOT. If one shows up, I will have to trust that he will save me one, I guess.

I'd be very surprised if they make giveaway rings for all 8 corps (not saying it's impossible though). That kinda screws over DC Direct with their JLA Trophy Room ring set, because given the choice, most people would prefer the cheaper option of obtaining all of the rings. And as people have already said, if anything was happening for Blackest Night #2, it probably would've leaked by now.

Still, the SDCC Hal Jordan figures show that molds exist for five other rings, so there may be a chance that those may come out again, unless those molds were destroyed for some reason.

Well, he said if they order 50 issues, they get a bag of 50 rings; if they order 75, the get a bag of 75 rings, etc. But if no one else's LCS knows about it, I wonder if he was just assuming or what. Guess we'll see.

i think releasing new rings with every new issue of bn is the only right way to do it the numbers work perfectly 8 rings 8 issues.

Those numbers work well, but I can't imagine the financial numbers work too well. I would assume that the first ring was an incentive to get people to try the first issue. From there I think they are relying on interest in the series to sell it. (Certainly a lot cheaper than giving out free rings with every issue.)

I spoke to a friend at midtown comics he said that there's a good chance that with bn2 there will be a new ring
He could just be leading me on so that I buy bn2 there but I doubt it bc he always sees me there and I've spent massive amounts of money there so he knows ima by bn2 there I really hope they have new rings

My LCS said they know nothing about new rings yet but they will order if they become available.

Rumor starts up again of a-ring-an-issue for Blackest Night on another board I frequent. I'm personally keeping fingers crossed. My LCS was giving out 1 ring per complete sale of BN and whatever tie-in was sold during that week of release.

I'm going to try and talk him in to throwing and extra or two into my bag, since I've been going there for decades now.
