I love this issue, black dawn concludes with the good guys winning and doesn't make the same mistake of killing off Manchester black(He's stuck in a cow's body). But it still didn't explain Lois's leg being back(got heat visioned by supes -0.7) and what that black ooze is(the black symbiote-looking thing Manchester black was using -1). SCORE: 8.3/10
