The Book of the Black is to the future Black Lantern Corps what the Book of Oa is to the Green Lanterns, or what the Book of Parallax is to the Sinestro Corps. Written in black, corrupted Guardian blood by the mad Guardian Scar, the Book of the Black has been issuing troublesome prophecies, indicating whose Earth heroes have the abilities to weather the Blackest Night and ensure the survival of the universe. The Scarred Guardian imprisoned Sinestro Corps talekeeper Lyssa Drak within its pages in an effort to protect its secrets. The Book of the Black is hidden within the vaults of Oa, from where the Black Guardian peruses its secrets to machinate the beginning and continuation of the Blackest Night in order to destroy the universe.
