    Its no surprise that my enjoyment of each individual issue of this title seems dependant on how much I like the stories featured therein. This issue is one of the better ones. Read Full Review

    With ten issues remaining, I'm expecting to start seeing the stories of these characters (all of them, not just the two here) come together, but the last page of this issue has me wondering what comes next. There are cliffhanger final pages and then there are cliffhanger final pages that have you checking the calendar to see just how long you're going to be strung out for. That's a bigger concern with "Brightest Day" as it could easily be a pair of issues (or more) before we revisit these characters again. Until then, it might be worthwhile to go back and re-read these first seventeen issues. Read Full Review

    For those of you out there who have not yet bailed on this series, do pick this one up. It's worth it. If you abandoned this series, I don't want to be responsible for bringing you back. Read Full Review

    This issues moves plot points significantly forward, but there are still questions. What happened in The Atom's lab? How exactly is Aqualad the key to keeping Mera and the rebel Atlanteans locked up in Xebel? Because the Aquaman plot has moved forward so much, I'm afraid that we won't see them return for a couple more issues. I hope I'm wrong, because this issue made the Aquaman plot my new favorite of the series Read Full Review

    It is true that I didn't enjoy the issue, but that doesn't mean that it was uneventful. Both of the major storylines took a step forward, with Aqualad taking his mantle and Firestorm fatefully becoming what they had feared. For those still interested in all the story threads of Brightest Day, there is plenty to sink your teeth into here, but I know for myself that I found it to be a bore with the only redeeming quality being the artwork provided by Ivan Reis, Scott Clark and Joe Prado.
