I have to admit, I'm really liking the storyline now. This kinda kicks the whole Marvel Zombies in the ass. There's some real stories going on and it really warms the cockles. :)

I think it's a toss-up whether I like the Flash storyline better than the Wonder Woman.

Nah. It's Flash all the way, baby. :)

Gotta love those deputies.

There are three miniseries collected here, all tying into Blackest Night: Flash, JSA, and Wonder Woman. I'll get JSA out of the way: didn't care for it. This is probably because I had little to no background in these characters and the team in general, at least in part. On the other hand, I really enjoyed the Flash storyline, even though I'm on shaky ground there when it comes to backstory. Maybe it's because the Rogues, at least Captain Cold and Weather Wizard, are getting interesting to me, an ...more

This is the latest volume of the Blackest Night crossover for me as I continue my journey through all of Pre New-52 DC.

I will repeat some of what I have said before. Blackest Night is possibly the best crossover event in comics (at the very least it is the best I have read so far).

This volume focuses on the Earth heroes Wonder Woman, The Flash, and the JSA. So, this book does continues the more personal, Earth-bound perspective of the epic space war going on as part of the Blackest Night. Like t
Meh. I liked some parts, I was bored through other parts. Quite a few parts. I admit I had to do some searching on some new faces for me and for some I had forgotten the details of. In general I just didn't get into this volume like I have through other collections from this event. There was very little adrenaline, I didn't have my emotions ripped out in the same way... This probably had something to with the fact that I haven't read much of Flash on his own and that I'm rather ambivalent about ...more

Tangential tales...that I would have been sad to have missed.

I know that some were less than impressed With the Flash/Rogues story arc...but, I enjoyed it. It was kind of fun having some old-school comic art via Scott Kolins. Also, since the main Blackest Night storyline...I've been converted to Flash-fandom.

I was particularly impressed with this scene: Geoff Johns juxtaposed Flash and Captain Cold - each reaching their own personal solid determination to continue the battle against the black la

An improvement over volume one of Black Lantern Corps. Two of the three writers play to their strengths. Geoff Johns excels at dealing with the Flash's rouges gallery of villains, and they get some character expansion here. If anything Cold is slowly becoming a favorite character of mine when written by Johns, a villain with a code, still a villain but one with "ethics" that I can understand. James Robinson again delineates JSA characters, and in doing so give us nice small glimpses into each. W ...more

it was a good book it was made in to 3 diffrent stories. It is a super hero comic book and if you like that kind of stuff this is a good comic series to start. it has blood and Gore in the comic. it has a good story line too.
i would reccemend ot to people who like super hero and a little blood and Gore this is a great book to start readeing. i gave it 4 stares because it is a great book and good storyline but it is not the comic book i am in to but it was a great book.

When you read all six miniseries, they're pretty redundant. Batman was okay. Superman a hair better. Titans a little less so. Flash the worst. JSA, hard to get invested in, as I don't know the characters at all. Wonder Woman, choppy, too caught up in the main event and various ring permutations Diana goes through.

The trick of seeing the characters in the emotional color spectrum was neat, but over-used.

Excellent. I have to admit these Blackest Night stories are a magnificent tie-in to the events of the main story. Though its a bit confusing. I imagine all these stories together would be the size of a textbook. But its still good to read them nevertheless.

This collection of the Black Lantern Corps takes its involvement with the Black Lanterns striking in three more major places. The first being Central City where a resurrected Barry Allen returns in glory to save his city and speedster family.

Well I think I liked this better than Volume 1, but I also read Vol. 1 out of context. This one had Wonder Woman stories by Greg Rucka, and he can write anything he wants and I'll enjoy it to some degree. The Flash stuff was solid, being by Johns of course will do that. The more I see Captain Cold, the more I think he needs a book all on his own as a sort of anti-hero. If we're being honest, he's not evil, he won't kill women or children, and rarely kills outside of necessity. I also like the mo ...more

I don't think it was as good as the first volume.

The beginnings of the JSA issues were organized strangely. And I really don't know that much about the JSA characters, unfortunately. At least, not the ones that became Black Lanterns. But I knew enough to understand most things and relate them to the main BN story.

The Wonder Woman stuff was good. I especially liked the parts with Max Lord. And I love her respect for the fallen soldiers. Although, I was a bit confused about how and when Wonder Wom

Dropping into this storyline - which, I must say, is impossible to track considering there's like 3 or 5 fucking storylines all going on at the same time and all encompassing the same overarching plot - was pretty confusing. It's also like being forced to watch your grandma's daily soaps while you're over visiting; bizarre, contextually incomprehensible, and saturated in what you have to assume was built-up melodrama but which comes across as simply histrionic. It's hard to care about a (version ...more

This collection concerns The Flash, The JSA, and Wonder Woman.

The Flash chapters were decent. He's an interesting character. Also he was deputized a Blue Lantern, which was really interesting.

The JSA chapters were too muddled. Knowing nothing about the JSA, there were too many characters for a neophyte to follow.

The Wonder Woman Chapters were worse than The Flash but better than THe JSA. She's a very military influenced character. She also becomes a Star Sapphire, which was unexpected but well

Better than the first volume, but still weak overall. The Flash story was interesting as it explored his rogues gallery a bit and you didn't need a degree in Flash canon to understand it. The JSA story wasn't very interesting for a non-JSA fan. Lastly the Wonder Woman story was really two mini-stories. Both were pretty average Rucka tales. Again, this volume should only be for Blackest Night completists as it really doesn't add much to the parent story and the individual stories don't hold a lot ...more

This volume contains The Flash, JSA, and Wonder Woman.

The Flash was probably the most interesting of the three and I look forward to reading "Flashpoint" when it is released later this year. I had no idea that Flash had so much to do with time travel.

The JSA was the most confusing because I had literally no background knowledge with them, but again, the context clues helped.

Wonder Woman was okay and slightly interesting given her special case with the Black Lanterns.

Again, reading these doesn't

The Flash story has a lot of the repetitive zombie fighting that makes up the BLC stories, but also has a nice reunion of both Flashes and Rogues [6/10]. The JSA story offers nice reminders of the team's origins and the Jesse Quick plotline is even quite touching, but beyond that there's the usual zombie fighting and a one-time deus ex machina [6.5/10]. Rucka's story of Wonder Woman starts off strong, but then gets badly fractured by moving in and out of the main Blackest Night storyline [5/10]. ...more

This compilation is part 2 of the Black Lantern Corps, this time around focusing on Flash, Wonder Woman and the Justice Society of America. This one as a whole I found to be less enjoyable than the previous volume- particularly because of the JSA. Despite being a very similar team up as the Justice League, for some reason they always manage to fail at holding my interest; it might have everything to do with being B-List characters as it is. Additionally Flash and Wonder Woman are two of my least ...more

JSA 1-3: 2 stars but confused again..if I knew these characters maybe I could follow? Zombie superman?! I'm so lost.

Wonder Woman 1-3: Wonder Woman is my favorite super hero and her stories were my favorite in this book. The artwork was beautiful but the storyline? ehh.. Wonder Woman turned evil and killed all of her friends, then she snaps out of it and turns sapphire purple and heals everything because she is the color of l

It gets three stars just for the Wonder Woman one-shot by Greg Rucka, who in my opinion was one of the character's best authors besides George Perez, but the rest of the stories varied greatly in quality. Ultimately, I don't feel like it was worth the money I spent on the hardcover edition, but I would probably still buy it in paperback just for the Wonder Woman story.

The current goings on with other super heroes and their families and various dead people don't really interest me. If I liked the entire DC universe and was on top of everything then this would be great, but I don't really care about any of these characters and this didn't make me want to read more about them.

The second collection of Blackest Night tie-ins, this group offers a better selection of stories. Flash's rogues must contend with their former members back from the dea, Wonder Woman faces both the black and violet rings, and the Justice Society members confrot their predecessors. The Rogues, ironically enough, provide the most compelling tale for this volume.

A solid collection, but nothing exceptional. Collects 3 different storylines from Blackest Night, which I enjoyed, and I am always a sucker for anything featuring the JSA.

This is what happened to Flash, Wonder Woman, and the Jsa in Blackest night. They are all good character pieces with individuals confronting those that they cared about who are trying to eat their hearts. The Wonder woman story does have some very nice artwork too.

Not the best of the Blackest Night arc, but still pretty good. I really don't like Superman so it took me a bit to get through that part but the rest was alright. I found the part with Barry Allen to be really interesting as well as the Wonder Woman sections.

A collection of side-mini-series, these stories worked OK. The top pick was Greg Rucka writing Wonder Woman again, even if she got stuck in that utterly ridiculous Star Sapphire costume. The other two, Flash and Justice Society, worked OK.

This one was more entertaining than Volume 1. A few have mentioned to me that they didn't enjoy Robinson's JSA arc but I found it great. The Flash arc put me to sleep. Snore-fest. The Wonder Woman arc was entertaining and Nicola Scott's art was sharp.

this volume of the blackest night has some of the stories from the other dc titles that were going on at the time. this one contains three titles, the flash, justice society of america, and wonder woman. all three are very good and fill in some of the gaps in the blackest night title.
