Post Thoughts on Brightest Day?

lots of haters it seems from various messageboards. some liked it, others dropped it like myself 1/2 way through.

I thought there was gonna be more depth to it, alot more storytelling and not the same characters standing around basically doing what they were doing an issue or two before. Sure there were some great scenes, a few great issues, cool looking covers or so. But the majority that I read I was just not getting into it as it progressed as did some as well.


thoughts?

I read three issues then realized it was only a money grab from DC.

Haven't read or cared about it since.

Dropped it with #7. I gave it until the reveals of their purposes to decide if I would continue reading. Their goals did not excite me and I dropped it.

Same here, although so far it has not been very impressive (story-wise). The art is nice though, but that's like 30% of the battle for me.

I didn't hate it because it wasn't worth hating.

It's a completely bland and pointless story... but is it awful or objectionable in any particular way? Not really.

Can't pass a final judgement until the last issue comes out but i'm loving it, it's been the one weekly that i've actually been able to follow from start to finish and enjoy it. Alot will depend on the resolutions etc. from BD #24 but i'm sure the haters will continue to hate even though most of them aren't even reading the book.

Not over yet, besides i think I'd like to read it all consecutively too before I call the spectre in and pass a final judgement.

I have been enjoying it, some stuff does seem a tad shoehorned in, but I freakin loved swamp thing as a kid, so I'm stoked for that. And the whole parliament of trees and dark avatar actually makes sense to me, so I'm excited to see what happens in the last issue.

Will Dove bite the boomerang? Or does deadman die again saving her? You know hawk wont do shit. From the solicits it seems they search for swamp thing, so does that mean he comes backs and then leaves? Does alec holland search out bayou jack and tomahawk to help him protect the swamp? So many questions to be answered and only one issue left.

Why resurrect 12 if you only needed 6???
Some of the resurrections now seem pointless... but less see how it ends

Deadman ... I get the whole "I want to live" thing
Hawkman/girl... end the curse and now could get interesting
Aquaman... about time he was back
Firestorm... GREAT he's back, now get him a monthly and a good writer
Martian Manhunter... interesting but he's more of a mentor type of character

Don't care about the rest...
Captain Boomerang... BLAH!
Zoon... they only did it so he can start FLASHPOINT... I bet it's all his fault!
Osiris... WTF! Black Adam would've been better
Jade... hmmmm not hatting it
Max... the whole WW killing him it's pointless now
Hawk... Double BLAH!

It's crap.

Doesn't go much deeper than that. I've stuck with this turd party the whole way through expecting the tie-in to the overarching GL story and instead of tying into the spectrum, tying into something great and grand, out of the blue and disturbingly abrupt they come off with some elemental crap? Token bad-guy propped up on a stick? All this discovery just to have the Martian Manhunter do his best impression of a dirt clod?

I'm all about letting the professionals do their thing and enjoying what it is they do but this went from hopeful excitement, a mystery in the reasoning for each ressurected soul, trying to deduct from past clues and information how each mission was going to in some way contribute some emotion/color to the white and without each mission, would weaken the white to the point of an inability to stop the black. Instead the book went from building climax to "Hey! Instead of the making the next logical step and bringing all this stuff together in a manner that is consistent with current GL universe canon, let's go all M. Night Shamalamading-dong and throw in a twist that makes no sense!"

Rock on Martian Turdhunter. Rock on Geoff "I'm Totally Out Of Ideas" Johns.

It had some fine moments, mostly with Aquaman, Mera, and Firestorm. It did go on too long, though. At times, the story seemed to drag.

This coming from the guy that would love a Geoff Johns comic if it was nothing but 22 pages of Geoff Johns taking a dump.

I'll vote on it after the 24th issue. For my final opinion on it but I've been loving it so far =)

I don't like giving final votes on things until it's done.

But it's eh. Couldn't care for any title that comes out of this, and instead of picking Aquaman up when it comes out, will wait to see if Johns writes it better or stays in his current pace.

I'll pass judgement after it is over but so far I don't think it's been bad but I don't think it's been great either.

It's okay. I've only read a few issues but some of the things that go on in the comic seem kinda redundant and random.
