Quick Thoughts on: Brightest Day #9

Brighest Day #9(of 700,934,276): Writers: GEOFF(1959!!!)Johns & Peter Tomasi. Artists: Lots of people.

Quick Thoughts: The Martian Manhunter arrives in Starwood Forest(get it??)and goes insane, trying to burn it down. Green Arrow says nuts to that and halts the mad Martians attack. Eventually MM realizes that Starwood Forest wasn't the forest he was supposed to burn down, so he leaves for Mars. Meanwhile, Black Manta and the evil Atlantians decide that they should try to find the new Aqualad before Aquaman does.

Ugh... This is STILL going on?!? By this point every story in this “event”(and I use that term VERY loosely)annoys me, and if not for my compulsive need to collect this full series, I'd have dropped this issues ago.

Score: 4 out of 10.The Martian Manhunter: a menace to trees everywhere.

  2. Ooh, big difference between your review and JT's! Definitely looking forward to seeing you guys talk about this one some more. (CAGE MATCH!!)

    Also, I had a good laugh at Martian Manhunter showing up to burn down the WRONG forest, lol. I'm picturing Ben Kenobi waving his hand in the air and smiling faintly at him: "These are not the trees you're looking for!"

  3. Lol @ That Star Wars joke, that cracked me up Marc. And I thought this was pretty average, I gave it a seven so I must've liked something when I read it but I can't remember what...

  4. Eh, from now on, unless something AMAZING happens, I don't see myself scoring any of these Brightest Day comics higher then a 5. It's just so damn boring!!!
