    This issue wraps with another one of the twelve apparently done for, but given the happenings of this issue proper, I'd wager next week's comic budget that the "final" bows we've seen to this point really aren't that final. There are, after all, eight surviving returned characters and only a trio of issues left in this series. Johns and Tomasi are ready to really pick things up here in the final three installments, but in the meantime, this issue does a pretty good job of providing a summary. Read Full Review

    Brightest Day is finishing big and we're getting to see some hints of where this is heading (for those that are following the Green Lantern series as well). This is looking to be as cosmic as Blackest Night, which could make this quite cool. Read Full Review

    With only three issues left, its hard to see how theyre going to wrap everything up the Star City Forest, Deathstorms army, the missing Aquaman and Hawks, the end of Deadman's quest, and the assorted returnees who have yet to accomplish their missions. But if anybody can end it well, this is the team to do it. Heading into the final stretch, Im feeling great about this story. Read Full Review

    Issue #21 of Brightest Day isn't the strongest we've seen, but it isn't the worst either. If for nothing else, Brightest Day #21 makes the Martian Manhunter seem significant again, and that's always a plus. Let's hope Johns, Tomasi and the art crew bounce back in two weeks with an issue that's up to snuff with the previous two Aquaman-centric issues. Read Full Review
