Black Lantern ring

Remember those Black Lantern rings that DC Comics offered to retailers to help promote the comic? If you missed yours, or if you had misgivings about supporting the bad guys, you’re in luck. DC is going to create rings based on all of the other colors of the various Lantern Corps., so you’ll have the opportunity to show your support for Sinestro and his the devious Yellow Lanterns, Saint Walker and his boys in blue, or even the mysterious Indigo tribe.

Show your true colors, or sell them on eBay … your choice.

Here are the details on how retailers can get a hold of the rings, per DC’s Direct Channels email to retailers … each bag of rings costs $8:

  • For every 25 copies of Doom Patrol #4 ordered by the order increase cut-off date, retailers may order one bag of 50 yellow promotional rings, scheduled to arrive in stores Nov. 4.
  • For every 25 copies of Booster Gold #26 ordered by the order increase cut-off date, retailers may order one bag of 50 orange promotional rings, scheduled to arrive in stores Nov. 18.
  • For every 50 copies of Justice League of America #39 ordered by the order increase cut-off date, retailers may order one bag of 50 red promotional rings, scheduled to arrive in stores on Dec. 2.
  • For every 50 copies of Blackest Night #5 ordered by the order increase cut-off date, retailers may order one bag of 50 green promotional rings, scheduled to arrive in stores on Dec. 16.
  • For every 50 copies of Adventure Comics #4 ordered by the order increase cut-off date, retailers may order one bag of 50 blue promotional rings, scheduled to arrive in stores Dec. 30.
  • For every 25 copies of R.E.B.E.L.S #10 ordered by the order increase cut-off date, retailers may order one bag of 50 Indigo promotional rings, scheduled to arrive in stores Jan. 13.

…or they could’ve done for each issue of the main series…? 8 corps, 8 issues…?

Does >25 copies = first 25 copies?

My LCS normally only orders one or two copies, does that still allow him to order a bag?

Sorry, I meant <25

I agree with matt, it would have been much more fun to get a ring with each issue of Blackest Night.

Cheers,

Cherry:
Probably not. When DC or Marvel have these kind of dealer incentives, its usally based on a minimum number.

Having said that, I’d much rather have these rings than variant covers. Sure, they’re cheap plastic, but at least it’s something. If this incentive works out, they could do it with other rings, a series based on rings the different Green Lanterns have worn, one the different Flashes have worn, The Legion flight ring… what else am I missing?

they could do lois’s wedding ring…

I’m havin’ these.

No violet?
