I really, really enjoyed this epic DC event.

My only problem, as with all crises and events, is not so much the fault of the comic itself, but with the fact that they include so many characters with whom I have no emotional ties. With all the preludes to the Blackest Night, I got closer and closer with different characters, and I became emotionally invested in their stories. Then most of them are gone, or their stories are diluted by a ton of others who I don't know and therefore am not invested in.

That being said, this is an amazing story, filled with some real emotional weight and true peril. Geoff Johns does an excellent job of making us question all the past events in the DC Universe, while leading us by the hand and watching him rip hearts out of our heroes.

Loved it.

Justyn Rampa I wonder if the format of "Brightest Day" will address some of the problems you had with Blackest Night as the format is more geared towards individual characters. Although, maybe not if you aren't invested in those characters. We'll see. Let me know what you think though whenever you have time to read them:-)
