If this is the BRIGHTEST DAY then what is Black Lantern Firestorm doing on our cover?!

    Front to back, a solid issue with rising tension and first class art. Pick it up! Read Full Review

    The art is great despite practically a dozen artists contributing to the title. It never loses its pace and runs along at a breakneck pace. It was such a fast and fun read that I had thought my copy was missing a few pages. However I really dont know if that should be considered a positive or a negative. I do have to applaud the creative team for managing to produce such a high quality book. I love where this event is heading, even though the cover misleads us in that there are no real answers to why these characters are back (yet). Read Full Review

    The various artists do a good job as usual. I dont feel that there were weak parts although I prefer some more than others. Read Full Review

    While I'm not crazy about some of the grim and gritty images, I like this comic a lot - it appeals to the Silver Age fan in me, and is doing a fine job (so far) of bringing those characters into DC's modern age. Read Full Review

    Brightest Day is simply golden if you're a DC fanboy, but what's more impressive is its accessibility. Even if this is your first foray into DC material, Johns and Tomasi are crafting some riveting and compelling story arcs that will, no doubt, come full circle by the end of the series' run. I have a feeling you won't regret being a part of the experience. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 26, 2011

    Brightest Day has a bit of an uneven issue this time around. Aquaman and Boston Brand's stories are really well done. Martian Manhunter makes a discovery that has a lot of potential, but I'm still having issue with the ease at which he took on the woman's dead father's role in order to gain the information previously. He's come across as even more disconnected than ever before. The Firestorm storyline is the one that bothers me the most though just because of the misplaced anger. Thankfully, the positive outweighs the mediocre here since Aquaman really manages to carry things well and looks fantastic doing it. With the cliffhanger here involving Carter and Shiera, we learn more of what Hath-Set has been up to all these years beyond making masks and it's an event that only serves to make him an even creepier character. And yet they find a very good way of making you want to come back to the next issue quickly with an ope-ended portal that you want to know more about. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Jun 6, 2010

    "Brightest Day" #3 opens with the Anti-Monitor and closes with a doorway through Hawkman continuity, and we get a whole lot of tension in between. It may not have done much more than put its characters in motion, but "Brightest Day," as a method of story delivery, seems like it just might work. And it might end up being the best of the year-long superhero experiments so far. Read Full Review
