New Comics Day

Wednesday Comics
Blackest Night
Green Lantern Corps

A double dose of Blackest Night this week, where we get to see the "return" of Aquaman. What this means for whatever, whoever, and however Aquaman may return in a comic is anyone's guess. As story goes, there is the typical heavy-handedness of these big crossover events. But the art is awful nice and it's kinda cool seeing the dead rise. Still as the Blackest Night concept is clearly reaching across the DCU and they really want you to know that. Green Lantern takes a back seat. Makes me wonder if there's a GL focal point at all, which points to the usual mega-crossover pointlessness.

Case in point: also shipping this week, Blackest Night: Batman #1 (of 3). Who cares?
