Green Lantern #52 & Blackest Night #8
Blackest Night issue eight was allot better than Green Lantern #52. Although before I start the review I have to say I don't like the fact that if you read Green Lantern #52 and you are subscribed to it, you don't just have to wait for the next issue, you have to go and buy Blackest Night issue eight.
Ok, I just had to get that off my chest. This comic was twice as good as Green Lantern 52. Sinestro is the White Lantern again, and is battling Nekron, when pow, Sinestro rips out Nekron's heart. The a load of Black Lanterns come, and the many corps battle them. Then Nekron comes back. (Dead, ripping out of the heart can't effect him.) He rips Sinestro from the white entity. All hope was lost, until Hal Jordan, flies into the white entity, and gives all ring holders (plus, ex-superheroe black lanterns) white rings. They bring the Black Hand back to life, which cuts the cord between Nekron and the physical world. To add one more good thing, the Anti Monitor brakes out of the Black Lantern Battery and declares that he wont be their prisoner nor power source anymore. Then the rest of the comic is people being reacquainted with dead superheroes. (Since they all got white rings, they all came back to life) One thing I didn't like about that is Dead Man got caught in the crossfire and is now a living Boston Brand. I hope and think they will kill him off again, so he can resume his role as Dead Man. This comic was well drawn, story was good, and the writing was very good, all together a recipe for a good comic. Plus, Blackest Night is over!
