    With nine issues out of the way, it's quickly hitting a point where it needs more substance to be introduced though. I'm enjoying each of the stories for the most part, but the ties that binds it together need to tighten a bit more to keep up the enthusiasm. Read Full Review

    The slow pacing of the Geoff Johns story is starting to dampen Brightest Day's momentum. The fact that Blackest Night was compressed into eight issues forced a certain discipline on a writer who loves the epic scale. Now DC has given him a lot more space, and he's filling it, but I don't feel the same kick, book for book, dollar for dollar, as I did with Blackest Night. Read Full Review

    This issue is a nice boost to one of this titles weaker storylines, but I hope we get back to Firestorm and a bit more from Deadman soon. Read Full Review

    It seems almost impossible for this title to settle into any sort of consistency, which is a real shame considering the talent that's working on it. Read Full Review

    Frankly, the highlight of the book is the action scene with Black Manta, mainly because it is drawn so well and because the character's strength and anger make him much more captivating than all those confused characters who have been wandering throughout this miniseries. Read Full Review

    "Brightest Day" is a frustrating series because for every piece that works in an issue, there's always something else that falls apart. I know it's difficult to juggle as many stories as there are crammed into this mini-series, but regret doesn't result in a better comic. There's a lot of talent packed into "Brightest Day" and I keep hoping it'll better showcase all of their ability. For now, though, it's still wildly uneven. Read Full Review
