Please help me "get into" blackest night
First off -- I know next to nothing about comic books. I have The Watchmen on my bookshelf, which I did read and enjoy, but that's the extent of my experience. So any help is much appreciated.
So, with that out of the way, I really want to read the blackest night storyline. Dunno why, I guess I just saw some of the images and thought, "wow, that looks cool".
I wanted to "pick it up", but it looks like there are a bunch of trade paperbacks for this...event? series?
and I didn't know where to start. So...which one should I pick up first?
I'm not made of money (poor grad student) but I also saw there's a trade paperback called "secret origins" that came (I think) right before blackest night. I don't know how much this ties in with blackest night, but I thought it might be useful to know the background of the...main character? The green lantern?
Would this be for the best, or is it completely unnecessary? I really don't know anything about the green lantern's other than what's posted on wikipedia.
