    Reis was the perfect choice to draw the acrobatic Deadman. It felt like I was reading a Daredevil comic book. I really like how he draws his characters. Every page was lively. Whats good about Reis is that his artwork never gets in the way of the story. It supports and reinforces it without taking over, as many good artists tend to do. Read Full Review

    Out of this issue there are changes on the horizon, both for this title and for others flying the "Brightest Day" cover dress. I'm unclear as to how tightly those other storylines will weave back through this book, but for my money, "Brightest Day" delivers a solid story issue after issue and this one is no exception. There are sure to be a few readers living on Bat-hype right now who find themselves compelled to buy this issue. It serves as a nice (albeit shockingly brief) recap of events to this point while also making for a nice introduction to the "Brightest Day" concept as an event. Read Full Review

    Even though I've been reading basically all of the Brightest Day tie-ins, this is actually the first issue I've gotten to read of the series itself. The storytelling's tight enough, of course, that I don't even need a recap to follow what's going on. Having been a huge fan of Tomasi's run on Green Lantern Corps, I've come to appreciate the unique synergy he and Johns have when they're working together like this. Read Full Review

    Naturally, the newly returned Bruce Wayne factors heavily into the issue. Luckily, his inclusion wasn't as random or pointless as might have been feared. Granted, scenes of Bruce becoming the unwilling host for a Lantern ring are becoming played out, but otherwise his involvement furthers the story. Another benefit to the current structure is that Ivan Reis steps in front and center. Easily the strongest of the Brightest Day artists, Reis captures all the acrobatic grace of Deadman's antics and his tortured emotions. There's even a nice homage to Neal Adams original cover to Strange Adventures #205. This is easily one of the best issues of Brightest Day. Whether it can be taken as a sign of continued improvement is unclear, unfortunately. Read Full Review
