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.

Its a sad thing that somebody important to the corps had to die.

But on the otherhand, its great because storywise, its shakes the whole status quo.

I still think some of the recent dead will be brought back. The worst scene, but best written and emotionaly dramatic, for me had to be the Firestorm and Girlfriend death. That was gut wrenching.

This has been 1 of the best events DC has done in quite some time.

Agree on the Firestorm "death". that 1 was messed up. I hated the Hawkman/Hawkwoman deaths as well.
