There is just so much going on during Blackest Night. Perhaps it should be called Blackest Week or Month. Here we're picking up where the last issue left off. What will happen when Abin Sur is resurrected as a Black Lantern? Will Sinestro and Hal Jordan get along long enough to fight off the Black Lanterns? And what will be the outcome to the Red Lanterns versus the Black Lanterns?
With Geoff Johns and Doug Mahnke do a great job here. With all the different Lantern Corps, we simply have an abundance of characters on each page. Throw in the egos and differences of each team and you're almost guaranteed some major action.
This issue wasn't just about the action and violence. We do see some interesting events. I had wondered what would happen when a Black Lantern and Red Lantern fought. It's also interesting to see how cool Hal was while the Black Lantern Abin Sur had him by the neck. Seeing Hal and Sinestro side by side is a scary image. Let's hope Sinestro stays true to his character.
Despite the fun of all the different battles going on, it almost seems like too much. It's great seeing what everyone is up to but part of me would like to see more of the individual pieces. I know that's not much of a complaint but it's really the only thing that bothered me. I am wondering where all this is going to go. I'll be eagerly awaiting the next issue to see what happens next.
