Had a chance to read some of the new Brightest Day comics and I have to say I feel a bit let down. Sinestro Corps Wars and Blackest Night were epic, this just seems a bit bland, dare I say boring. And now I remember why I never liked the Hank Hall version of Hawk...

It is a 27 issue story so they have to pace themselves a little.

I'm willing to go some more issues before I judge the results/success of the book.

That's weak reasoning in my opinion. Every issue of a book should be good and not given a ten issue allowance of weak mediocrity to 'get things going'. If that's the case they might as well have made it a 12 issue series instead and just got to this alleged 'good part' right at the beginning. It even has the added momentum of being a bi-weekly book and its still not very interesting. I'm finding the other Bi-weekly book, Justice League: Gen Lost to be a much more interesting read.

I agree that Justice League: Gen Lost has been enjoyable.

I'm just mad we didn't get an Osiris figure yet. I have to wait until Wave 3?

Max Lord is not my favorite character either.

I sincerely DO hope that Brightest Day last beyond the first 2 waves...
Osiris
Hawk
Dove
Aqualad
Professor Zoom
Capt. Boomerang
Maxwell Lord
Cheshire
AND JADE!!! HOw could I forget Jade???

It's a shame they put all the "A-listers" in the first 2 waves...slows down the potential of continuing the line. And I still say that Deadman needs a trechcoat and an interchangeable head.

Would be nice for sure, as is only the white ring on his finger really gives any sign that this isn't a typical Deadman figure.

This lame-case was treated to an AWESOME death when Wonder Woman gave his head a 180 degree turn that was witnessed by millions!

What's that? Comics have made another cool death moot??? Shocking.

Same, but I know why I don't like him. It's the cooper color...I really don't like it. I wish DC would just go back to plan old orange for his shirt. Update the designs a bit if you want, but leave the colors alone.

Looks orange enough to me. One thing I will say about DCUC (even though I prefer DC Direct), their classic Aquaman is amazing. Might be tough for this one to beat. It will still likely be the best DCD has done.

I still want it anyway, but yes the DCUC one is one of the best.

Well then a big Thank You to him for taking them and to you for posting the link here. It seems this year I've been having problems finding much coverage of the stuff I like maybe I need to expand my collecting site list.
