This was great. I'm not going to be a hardcore Brightest Day follower, but the events of this issue could lead up to some really cool shit. Reis, Prado, and Sinclair did a nice job with the art. I'm hoping that Sinclair posts the huge multi-page spread on his DeviantArt account.

I'm hardly angry.

I just have no tolerance for haters.

Haters gonna hate, after all.

"I'm afraid of one thing, I'm afraid to get close to people" right from the off of this issue, you're treated to some typical Johns cliche' spell it out for you dialogue from Hal. No longer is there any subteltly, like Claremonts best work from the 80's or Stan's work in the 60's, everything is spelled out for the reader. Unfortunately, I like to think things have moved on since then.

"What else is new"

"Sinestro is now joined with the very light which was driven into the universe. Sinestro is now one with the entitiy"

"It was a rhetorical question"

That's twice in the opening pages that I'm rolling my eyes at the dialogue on show, and that's without the actual story and plot itself. The whole war of colours thing is again a very silver age concept, and whilst they might be fun, the whole premise of this arc is very hokey and IMO fan fiction level bad.

Soon follows a moment with Larfreeze and Lex Luthor. Lex with an orange lantern ring is yet again an idea which Geoff just threw out there, and failed to do anything with. It sure made a kewl splash page though.

"Hey I'm just the ghost with the mossttt...."

Honestly, this is the last time I'll insult Johns dialogue.

Then comes the resurrection scene. Nothing annoys me more, than something like this, it was stupid when Marvel kept only the most popular mutants after House of M, but this is even worse. Why are random popular superheroes just bought back? What is the point. These were characters which were killed, and now there death means nothing, the status quo is reverted to what it once was, and randomly the most popular characters at DC are all back alive again. Will any comic have a sense of finality anymore? Thankfully Johns kept some characters dead (Blue Beetle, the Dibny's) for story reasons, I imagine, because they were better off dead, but the same could be said about every single person he bought back, and it just furthermore adds to the revolving death door in comics.

Stupid Stupid Stupid.

The art was good though. Very nice art, from EVS who I thought had been putting in average work recently.

2 out of 10. (For the art)[/b]

I didn't realize Osiris, Deadman, and Hawk had legions of adoring fans.

And EVS wasn't the artist, do keep up.

I'm going to line by line shit on the next Bendis book you guys review. Line by line. panel by panel.

BTW- How did this make any sense? The heroes returned because they wanted to live again? So somehow the "White Lantern Corps :lol: " gave access to those people who wanted to live again, and the only dead people who wanted to live again were the ones ressurected? Or were they just random? Waht actually happnened.

Haters will hate.

I've moved beyond hatred.

But still, they want me to go to the bad place.

Were you born this bad-ass? Or did you learn to be this bad-ass somewhere?

I don't think Twigg wants you to go to 'the bad place', he's just posting his honest opinion on the book, you don't need to get so riled up by it.
