    Brightest Day #20 is the action packed issue that fans have been clamoring for since the series began. Though it might be too little too late for some, the culmination of the Aquawar has been well worth the wait in my opinion. It never gets old to see a hand get chopped off with high intensity drama.

    Johns, Tomasi and an art army have served up a good issue, succeeding in transforming, at least for this issue, a mid-list superhero into somebody important. They also succeed in expanding the Aquaman mythos. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Theres an interesting cliffhanger ending, and I get the feeling (with just four issues left) were seeing our heroes being drawn together for the grand finale. As such, its working well. Read Full Review

    In the end, though, the White Lantern proves once more to be batcrap crazy, as a hero accomplishes his mission and is strangely rewarded. There are four issues left, and I'm fairly certain there's going to need to be some quick resolution on some of the other stories. Read Full Review

    The art is of acceptable quality but some portions seem rather rushed. Perhaps the inking was too heavy, so that it left the title looking a bit 'muddy." The art is still good but Ivan Reis could do better. Read Full Review

    I don't know about anyone else, but I'd rather read one linear story as opposed to 31 different stories in the same comic. Read Full Review
