    Overall, this is a fine ending to a very good series. Well done, Johns and Tomasi. Read Full Review

    It's not a bad series at all, but it doesn't live up to the Blackest Night series. It is a worthy effort and I'm happy for some of the end results - but I think they could have told this story in half the space. Read Full Review

    But the fact that the writers manage to elicit that sort of response is a sign of some amount of success. Brightest Day #24 is a suitably competent finale to the bi-weekly series. It doesn't rise to the level of Johns or Tomasi's best work, and the art is particularly haphazard given all the creators working together, but it could have been a far worse finish.

    With each issue, "Brightest Day" offered up genuine surprises. As we all know, those are a rare commodity in the comic business today. The reveal of Swamp Thing was a genuine surprise, and a welcome character returned to the DCU proper. Unfortunately it robbed this last issue of the opportunity to be a stellar surprise.

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Apr 27, 2011

    Overall, I enjoyed Brightest Day as a whole, but it was far from the cohesive, directed story that it could have been. It doesn't seem as though the various roles that the twelve resurrected heroes and villains were to play were really hashed out all that clearly from the start, and as a result, it felt as though the writers were scrambling to jam some of those pieces into the puzzle they ended up putting together in the end.

    Comics Bulletin - Chris Kiser May 2, 2011

    Its rare that a floundering conclusion doesnt cast a dark shadow upon the entire tale that preceded it, but thats exactly the case with Brightest Day. Despite the pretense of a cohesive big picture, this has essentially been an anthology series, the bulk of which was fairly enjoyable in and of itself. Johns and Tomasi can keep their whole; Ill take the sum of Brightest Days parts. Read Full Review

    Those who kept reading this one every couple of weeks have stronger constitutions than I do. However you feel about it, Swamp Thing is back and it seems like the beginning of reincorporating Vertigo properties back into DC proper has officially begun, especially considering the tease of a certain Hellblazer we're given as well.
