A little late, but these issues were so good that putting off the thread would have been a disservice. The big ones include:

GREEN LANTERN #46: A major spotlight is shined on Sinestro here. This takes place after Blackest Night #3, as the Indigo Tribe removes Hal Jordan from Earth to join the fight on Zamaron. After Zamaron falls to the Black Lanterns, everyone is taken to Korugar and we FINALLY get the big one-on-one between Sinestro and Mongul. Mongul gets the early advantage, but Sinestro actively pushes away Hal and Carol and wipes out Mongul by activating the Yellow Rings' fail-safe switches. Sinestro places Mongul into the Yellow Power Battery and emphatically retakes full control of the Sinestro Corps. The celebration is cut short by the arrival of Black Lanterns Abin Sur and Arin Sur. Notably, Hal has no clue who Arin Sur is. Total awesome all around. Thumbs WAY up!

DARK REIGN: THE HOOD #5: The ending of the fourth issue kept me in suspense for about a month. The Hood takes out White Fang again (while finding out that his family IS still alive) while The Controller conveniently rescues the rest of the gang. Parker quickly realizes that useless cousin John said too much and his family is now compromised. After seeing Dormammu in his child, Parker shakes her and gets himself kicked out as a result. The climax comes when Hood goes one-on-one with Force, as Parker fully embraces Dormammu and wins the day, while White Fang calls a truce. He also exposes Controller as the string-puller and punishes him by slapping his own Slave Disc on him. Issue ends with cousin John sent into Mob Protection in Florida while Hood walks away on his own. An admirable job from writer Jeff Parker, who's now on my radar. Thumbs up!

BLACKEST NIGHT: TITANS #2: This ones takes a turn for the creepy, as Donna Troy's dead husband and baby both come back to haunt her. The baby bites Donna in the neck, vampire-style, which takes her out of it towards the end of the issue. Not much else to say on this one, as it's average action sequences followed by what's becoming a staple of Blackest Night issues and tie-ins: the last page featuring a spread of freshly raised BL's. Recommended for Titans fans, but a Thumbs in the Middle otherwise.

GOTHAM CITY SIRENS #4: Well, this was bound to happen. Hush continues his plan to "accidentally" kill Harley, when a funny thing happens. The Joker sends out goons to kill Harley themselves. Catwoman and Poison Ivy arrive to take out the goons, but Hush takes the opportunity to take out the giant Joker balloon, making the town EVER MORE convinced that he's Bruce Wayne and making them love him that much more. After the fact, Harley starts pining over Joker again, who reciprocates by sending an exploding train their way. I've got to say, Joker has single-handedly made this series entertaining (not that I didn't LOVE last month's Riddler-centric issue). I'll enjoy it while it lasts. Thumbs up!

That's all for now. A full thread comes on Thursday!

The Blackest Night series proper, GL, and Corps have been nothing short of amazing the past few months. GL 46 though, rraised the bar. Sinestro was WICKED AWESOME the entire issue, and the bit where he mentions about exercising "control" and being controlling while activating the failsafe made PERFECT SENSE and not to mention HE WAS ON KORUGAR.


Solicits have revealed a big change for my favorite GL in the next couple of months, so I;m a bit apprehensive. But I trust they'll make things right.

On a non- GL note, I second the love of the Riddler. I love the take on him now and think it's a wonderful bit of character devlopment.

You know, I really don't know what to put here. Close your eyes and thank of something funny!

Has anyone else noticed that just about every Black Lantern seems to be highly sarcastic?

I'm sure that whoever's behind the BLs is doing this to elicit an emotional response from the living, but it's a characteristic I'm getting a kick out of.

Straight to the reviews: Nova #7: Top to bottom, I think this is probably the strongest issue of the series so far. And I've thought the series was pretty good up until now. The writing is sharp and the art looks great.
