All right, it's time for me to take a look at the most recent issue of Brightest Day! The one comic I dread reading the most every two weeks... As always, I'll be reviewing this comic using Brightest Day Rules, meaning I start out imagining this will be the worst comic I've ever read, and adding or subtracting points as we shift scenes.
Review: We kick off with the Firestorms realizing they didn't destroy the DCU(no, that distinction Geoff Johns and Dan Didio), but instead were transported to the Anti-Matter Universe to find the captive White Lantern Battery. We then move to Dove and Deadman, who have apparently become an item... Um, is this the same Dove who was mortified at a strip club in a recent issue of Birds of Prey?! Anyway, the Deadman stuff ends when he takes his 98 year old grandfather on a motorcycle ride. Finally we get the denizens of Hawkworld attacking the Star Sapphire world of Zamaron. Carol Ferris leads the battle against the Hawkworlders, and we finish things off with Hawkgirl's mother being possessed by the entity of love, the bizarrely named Predator.
Thoughts: Right off the bat I'll give the Firestorm portion of the story a 2, mainly because I didn't have to suffer through any of Deathstorm's lame dialogue. From there it's a -1 for Dove sleeping with Deadman, because that is SO out of her established character. When did she become a whore?! I'll give the stuff between Deadman and his grandfather a 2 because it was okay, if incredible hokey. Finally, ANYTHING concerning Hawkworld gets an automatic -2. After some adding and subtracting we wind up with a final score of...
Score: 1 out of 10. Well, at least it wasn't a zero... Yet.The Firestorms talk and do stuff.
