Brightest Day #11

I have to admit that I'm feeling under the weather today, friends (apparently something I ate is fighting back with a vengeance), so this is going to be a short review.

Brightest Day continues to focus on the return of Silver and Bronze Age heroes, and while it's nice to see Aquaman and the Martian Manhunter back in action, but the story just seems to be stumbling badly, with lots of fighting and yelling and not much in the way of actual story or explanation about what's happening.

As the cover indicates, this issue sees the return of (some) Black Lanterns, and that's disappointing, too - as villains, they're no real challenge to the heroes. Just set 'em up and knock 'em down.

The art's pretty good, if uneven. We're 11 issues in, and the story is still awfully muddy. Again, it's great to see these characters return (that was long overdue), but we need more than that.

Grade: B-
