Blackest Night is SOOOOOO Good!

I am loving Blackest Night!  While they are only on issue #2, I feel like I’ve been reading it for months.  The build up in Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps has been expertly done, and the mini-series itself is outstanding. The third issue is due out September 16 and I can’t wait!  The variant […]
