    It's a toss up as to which issue of this entire event has been my favorite. It's either this issue or the previous issue of Green Lantern, but I am leaning towards this issue. This comic manages to have a giant battle while developing the key members of the corps and giving the zombies ample opportunity to talk trash. What more could you ask for? This is a terrific comic book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 14, 2009

    Astonishingly, this issue doesn't feel like "yet another issue of 'Blackest Night.'" It feels fresh, and organic, despite the decomposing organic nature of many of the stars in this issue. True, this is yet another issue of the story of "Blackest Night," but this one enhances the main thrust happening in the "Blackest Night" title. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Oct 15, 2009

    There's not a lot going on in this issue besides the hitting, so it certainly isn't required reading if you've been following the title for the last few issues. For what it is, though, it's a fun romp with strong character voices and good art. Sometimes all you really need out of a comic is good action and it works well for this one. Read Full Review

    If the issue has one shortcoming, it's in the art department. Gleason is inked by three different inkers, each of whom brings a slightly different texture and depth to his pencils. It's not too much of a problem, but it's disappointing not to see a level of visual consistency in these dynamic, gut-wrenching battle scenes. I'll give Gleason and company a pass this time around, only because that cover, and its play on words, is one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Corwin C. Crowl Oct 16, 2009

    It is great to see Tomasi pick up on story points that were planted in the Tales of the Corps mini but I am hoping for a bit more. As impossible as it may be I want him to really give most of these Lanterns their time to shine. I was happy to see Isomat and Varth get some face time but it was sorely limited and they just get trounced. The cover reveals a little of the ending of the issue but it raises more questions than answers. This surprise out shines the second surprise that actually ends the issue but the real question is where did these children come from? Could the children of Kryb have been killed only to be resurrected? What about the children Sinestros we have seen in the Origins and Omens issue? And where are Salaak and the Alpha Lanterns? Their presence is sorely missed after the important face off they had last issue. Read Full Review

    Love the main storyline of Blackest Night, but this sidebar leaves me as cold as that gory cover. Read Full Review
