Six issues in, and I have to say Blackest Night is certainly something to read. Whether you love it or hate it, the one thing I can say about this series is that it always leaves you wanting more. That can be good and bad.

I can’t say I have a leg to stand on as I’m only reading the main series and the mini’s. I’ve read the Booster Gold tie-in as I pick up that title regularly, but I haven’t been able to pick up Green Lantern or Green Lantern Corps. So, I often feel I’m getting bits and pieces of a larger story. I’m left wanting more in that I wanted this to be somewhat on a larger scale. The one thing I heard about Sinestro Corps War is that it was a sweeping epic. With this, it kind of feels epic but I just don’t feel the grand scale.

The upside to this issue and the series as a whole is that Geoff Johns really loves the characters and that shows in the writing. He’s made Ray Palmer something to take notice of. And his choice for the “Rainbow Corps” as it’s been called has certainly been interesting! This series has a lot of great last pages. Speaking of pages, you really do get a bang for your buck.

Blackest Night #6 is moving the story along, but with two issues to go, how do you wrap up a story like this?

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 4 - Very Good


  1. You need to read Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps. While Blackest Night is the namesake book, all three are equally invested in the story.
