Green Lantern #54

         This issue is a sort of meanwhile... for Brightest Day. It starts where Brightest Day issue one started. Hal Jordan, Sinestro and Carol still can't lift the White Lantern battery. When all three of them try, the White Lantern goes crazy and says "HELP ME LIVE," it also tells the three lanterns to find all of the Entities. This issue also looks like it is going to connect with the Legion of Superheroes. Something, which I think is a guardian gave Sodam Yat some undisclosed gift, and turns Daxam's sun back into a red sun killing many. Then the story shifts to Atrocitus who kills a bunch of muggers, when he starts spilling blood onto a page to locate the Entities he notices Ion and Parallax aren't there, that is when Sinestro, Hal, and Carol come in. Hal starts fighting Atrocitus when Lobo comes in and takes out Hal Jordan.
       This comic reminds me of a very common expression, "They don't make them like that any more." This comic was fantastic. Even though there were many sections to this comic, each one was clear, so it wasn't confusing, nor was it boring. So this comic was good, but I'm not a big fan of Brightest Day. Many people have been told to find all the people that the White Lantern brought back. Many of these people can fly, and the one's who don't have other means of transportation, why doesn't any one find them? Any way... I really like the idea of the Entities. A bunch of creatures who are actually living emotions... cool. The only part that I found confusing was the Sodam Yat thing. Who was the guy in the black robe? What was his gift? And how is this going to tie into Legion of Superheroes? (I know it will) Also the art was beautiful. You can open this book at any page and it will jump out at you like fire works.
 I might subscribe to this series too, I haven't read it in a while, but I really like this series, so maybe.
