Good Unscripted review!
Unscripted Review: Brightest Day #9
But her friend is nowhere to be seen, now she walks through her sunken dream... to the seat with the clearest view... and she's hooked to the silver screen, but the film is a saddening bore, for she's lived it ten times or more: she could spit in the eyes of fools... as they ask her to focus on sailors fighting in the dance hall. Oh man! Look at those cavemen go... it's the freakiest show. Take a look at the lawman beating up the wrong guy. Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know: he's in the best selling show.... is there life on Mars?
Hmmm, hopefully J'onn can come out of this series with people still interested in him.
The only bad thing about this issue...was that stupid "FOREST FIRE!" thing on the front. I wish they'd stop putting that crap on the amazing covers for these books.
With that said, this issue brought my faith back in this series. Too bad I hate more issues than I like. I have decided, however, that I need to stop looking at this series as its bi-weekly setup and more as a "double-sized monthly issue".
One complaint that I've had about the series was brought up in this review: there's only certain focus on certain characters in certain issues, which causes it to feel disjointed. However, looking at it in a "double-sized monthly" way, each of those months end up focusing on a large number of characters. In turn, it makes me think that they could've done that and it would've been a far more interesting book at times.
Nonetheless, I figured you guys would've ended up liking the issue more than you did. The Martian Manhunter stuff was good, ESPECIALLY since it FINALLY crossed over into one of the Brightest Day spin-off books. At the same time, it almost made me feel like it was a shameless ploy to say "hey, you should go read Green Arrow now". I liked the setup for Aquaman and Aqualad, and the Black Manta piece at the end was pretty sweet too.
I'd also like to say that the stuff with Martian Manhunter pointed out a Black Lantern tidbit, and I thought that was interesting since we hadn't seen a portion of BL stuff with MM yet.
All I know is issue #10 is the one with the Aqualad/Deadman cover, and I'm psyched about that issue tremendously.
Good review as usual.
Is it hot in the office? G-Man looks as if he ran marathon. Babs had some dymanic lighting in this one.
My biggest problem with Aqualad is that often times the way the artists have drawn him. He looks more Aqua MAN than the actual Aquaman. Just feels weird to be calling some buff guy, "lad".
Thanks for doing this review, I had to drop this title because I don't have an infinite amount of money to spend and had to pick and choose what comics to get.
So I am glad I can keep up with the title and hear about stuff without having to get it, and that I can wait and get it as a trade.
