    Oh yeah, I most definitely enjoyed this issue! Besides the main story, you also had the JSA coming face to face with their recently deceased teammate BL Damage, as well as Earth-2's BL Lois Lane going after Ma Hunkel, who is saved by the timely arrival of Power Girl, who is originally from Earth-2 and was like a daughter to BL Lois, plus we also get Liberty Belle running into her dead father, Johnny Quick.

    This is a very good "Blackest Night" tie-in, perhaps one of the best yet, as Robinson steps up to the challenge. I just hope the other two issues are just as strong. If timing plays out, the "Blackest Night: JSA" #3 will come out the same week as "Blackest Night" #7, and I have to believe that the timing of those two issues, combined with the professional relationship between Geoff Johns and James Robinson is more than just coincidental. The JSA will play a big part in ending the "Blackest Night," but first they'll get much deeper into it. Read Full Review

    That's the plot in a nutshell. To say this comic lacks substance and consequence would be giving it too much credit. There have been quite a few excellent Blackest Night tie-ins since the event began. This is not one of them. I have a hard time believing even the most adamant supporters of all things Blackest Night will find much to enjoy in these pages. Although I have to say, the idea of a Black Lantern Robinson deliberately ruining the writer's reputation is quite amusing. Read Full Review
