Oh, and that was a great story. Very creepy, the ending had a kinda "Twilight Zone" feel to it, if you know what I mean. The mean-spirited sting in the tail.

I'm saying that the Five Inversions are the survivors because they are the only 5 with bodies, the others are spirits. And yes, physical creatures have innards. If I rip Etrigan in half, there's innards, but his spirit remains.

Even that would be a retcon of the origional story wouldn't it? Origionally there were all bodiless spirits. Anyhow, you could be right ... they might be bodiless demons imprisoned on Yasmault.

.... but if there ain't, I wouldn't be at all surprised.

Could be that the five inversions created the Red Lanterns while the spirits of Ysmault are behind the black. Atrocitus seems to be very interested in helping out whoever is controlling the black and wants to bring it into being.

He wanted to find William Hand so to bring about the rise of the Black Lanterns and the destruction of the GLC and the guardians. and since he couldn't he found how to build the red and with them join the battle to again help enduce the Blacks creation.

I'm really on the fence about posting up mega scans of issues like this... even super old ones.

I don't think it is screwing with sales of any kind, unless this story is reprinted.

It was reprinted in DC's Alan Moore trade, along with many other stories he did for DC (Mogo's, the blind GL (blanking on the name), the killing joke, and others.

I am pretty sure hun that this would fall under Resonable Use clause of the law. I didn't post the entire issue of the comic, just 12 pages of it. DC and Geoff have been promoting a new up comming series Blackest Night which is in part based off these pages. Given all that I think the Resonable use clause in the copy right laws would apply as I posted these pages in a "Reference Material" copasity.

Then someone can post the pictures of Hal Jordan fighting Nekron and Krona and their army of the dead.

I think the guardians said that the inhabitants of Ysmault were demons. It was near the Sinestro Corps War arc where the Guardians are discussing the Blackest Night.

The original prophecy sounds more like SCW than the Blackest Night, unless there's more to it than Quill was letting on, like how the Empire of Tears wasn't part of the war, he said he'd lie but he didn't say he'd tell Abin Sur everything either, unless the Empire of Tears will back up the RLs the same way the Manhunters backed up the Sinners

What exactly is left of the Empire of Tears besides Atrocitus?

That wasn't the first explanation for Abin Sur traveling around by ship, though.

Good bump, love this story. Was one of my first GL issues when I was younger. (Actually that WHOLE issues got great stories)

And how the hell can this violate copyright??? We don't pay money to post here (so its free of charge) plus DC doesn't get royalties or anything for old issues in the back issue market, so whats the beef?
