Blackest Night

I really am liking Blackest Night. I wondered when word leaked about Guy Gardner and the Red Lantern angle what could do that and who could be dying? I saw it in Green Lantern Corps. It was fitting and I hope not a permanent death. I still say the white light will be the way it all ends. What is neat is how creative they are being with this story.

Everyone was making zombie comparisons and yet we now know it is more a puppet master thing going on. The recent ring give a ways have been trickery into selling lower tier titles, yet have had useful tidbits in them. Still, it was such a Marvel thing of DC to do. I will say that the return of Ted Kord in Booster Gold was really good. It helped that the new Blue Beetle is there as well.

Really just felt a need to check in. Don't forget good reads like Echo, Buffy TVS, Witchblade, and Batgirl while Blackest Night rolls onward and upward.

Have you been reading Power Girl? I must say that this is a comic book I could gave a tween and not be worried about. It is like classic comics, smart, funny, and not dumbed downed. The set up has been a slow boil with many over the top battles along the way. One amazing feat being PG slowly down a falling Manhattan Island while her sidekick Terra made a cushion of earth to catch the land mass.

Terra is the added plus. She is being mentored I guess by Karen Starr. The dynamic between the two women is very well written and fun as well. I like this being part of the book. I also like that it is a title you actually read. Text is very included in the pages. It makes me hopeful that maybe we can get more of this type, if all of you will read it.

In the coming months I know Dr. Mid-Nite will be along and I figure more of the JSA as well. I would love to see a Babara Gordon appearance from the Power Girl side. I have seen PG come into the Birds of Prey and to see Oracle from her side would be a nice story.

If you haven't checked the book out please do. It is a nice and fun read that has become one of my bottom of the stack. Yeah, I do it in reverse. I do read some first because of the "I can't wait" factor, but a few are at the bottom. These are the books I want to savor. Power Girl is in the Savor Stack.

Blackest Night Rocks!

OK, so I am having trouble being regular with the post. I have been getting my Blackest Night fix in major clumping doses. One advantage of not being able to get to the shop every two weeks (maybe the only advantage) is I get to read consecutive parts of the story. It seems I was on to something with the whole White Lantern idea, "Hal's Final Ring," just maybe not as it will in, but pretty close so far.

Looks like miss Dove is at Peace and Peace gives off a white color for the emotion. She also fried the Black Lanterns around her and deactivated the rings. So Cool!

Many are feeling the economic pinch, this event is at the very least delivering your monies worth. I am worried about what I heard concerning Guy becoming a Red Lantern. I do so like the Indigo Tribe. They rock so far. I like that they seem to have been hidden just for this occasion. I also loved the scene where Larfleeze is being chased by the Black Lanterns he killed to make his construct Corps from. That was so funny.

I am trying to figure out a schedule and a way to post more. I just need so passion to write about things again.
