the video not up yet. 

Posted by hpwaz

The video is only getting to about 2:02 and then it stops.
Posted by jakob187

Okay, there was a video on Giant Bomb (Vinny's top 10 games of 2010) that cut off before it was finished, and this one did it as well.  GRRR! 
 
Either way, from what I saw, this was a GREAT review, Babs.  I can't wait to see where they go from BN#5!!!

damn, my shop didn't get blackest night 6.:)

The Scarecrow scene in particular was a strong point. Defined the character and his purpose very well and it sent chills down my spine

Woops.

The video freezes on me at exactly 2 minutes in. Maybe it's something on my end. I know sometimes when videos are fresh up they sometimes don't load all the way or at all. I'll check back later and see if it works then. It's nice to see that they are starting to get a handle on what it takes to defeat the Black Lanterns. Seems about time. It also is thrilling to know what needs to be done, but lacking the power to pull it off.
 
There seems to be some nice tension building. I should probably make a Blackest Night based 4koma. I have a pretty good idea for one.

do you get a power ring with this issue?

Great review Babs and thanks for fixing this video's problem .

Posted by RoninKane

Babs, I have to agree that the Flash pages were great. For those who haven't got it," go now" , the sides are lined up and the battle is about to begin! Sucks we have to wait till February for #7, guess we'll have to make due with G-mans' hated Blackest Night Tie-ins to make do.

Definitely worth the cash and the hype. That a big event is still going strong and has me excited six issues in is a testament to BN's deserved success.

the video just randomly stopped for me.
 
but i was (yet again) blown away by Blackest Night!!
 
the page with John Stewart was a big HOLY S#!% moment. and of course the ending.
 
Ivan Reis is SO good. i cant even explain how in love with his art i am.

Please let me know if the video is giving anyone else any problems, and thanks in advance! :)

@Babs: 
 
Yeah, the video stops post-The Flash segment with "there's a tremen--"
Posted by FoxxFireArt
@cmaprice:
It's doing the same thing for me still. The video stops in the stop described, but for some reason the counter keeps going.

@Babs:  Still dying at the two minute mark.

I can't believe barry gets a ring

Posted by crazed_h3ro
@Zniperking: Wait barry got cought o_O he was awesome...WHY?

Whats up on the 2 minute mark? its freezing on me o_O
Posted by danhimself

first off...it's still freezing up at the 2 minute mark 
 
second off...you THINK it was Doomsday who killed Superman?  C'mon Babs that's basic comic book knowledge there 
 
I loved this issue...it was my favorite of the week...the big thing that happened in it was one of the most exciting scenes that I can remember in recent comics...just thinking about who the rings were going to pick was nail biting...it sucks that we have to wait until February for issue 7 but it's also great that we're getting 14 Blackest Night tie in books in January...say what you want about events but Blackest Night has been the best thing to come out of comics in a long time

@crazed h3ro:  It's not what you think. 

I just saw the final page for this issue. My jaw has yet to come off the floor. I wonder if it'll stay that way or not.. Would be kinda refreshing.
Posted by No_Name_

Hey guys, so sorry about this! I'm working on fixing the problem and re-uploading the video. I'll let you know when I've finished and I would appreciate you guys testing it out again. Once again, sorry about this!

Wonder Woman has a ring......pretty badass. This was probably my favorite Blackest Night issue so far.

@Gambler:
Given she's more of a "warrior", I would've prefered if she got a different one.

Flash kind of taps into the Speed Force

I wouldn't of had a problem with that either. And yet it somehow seems fitting for her to get the "love" ring.

I think I need to come to a lady's defense on this one. I'm not 100%, but judging by the context of what she was saying. I think she might be speaking of the title of the story. Not who actually killed Superman.
 
I do believe that the arc leading up to the death was Superman: Doomsday since it was the comics subtitles, and on pretty much every cover leading up to the death. Much in the way Blackest Night is now. The name of the over all arc was called The Death of Superman

" Superman: The Man of Steel #18 - The Beginning of the End! Doomsday!"  
" Justice League America #69 - Doomsday!"
" Superman #74 - Doomsday!"
" Action Comic #684 - Doomsday is Near!"
" Superman: The Man of Steel #19 - Doomsday!

Then it was Death, Funeral, Returns, and Reign of the Supermen. I'm not even sure if this was called Death of Superman until after his death actually happened.

Should be fixed!

@Babs: 
I just tried it and it's working for me now. All the way through. Enjoyable review as always. Thanks.
 
Now, off to play more Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.
Posted by CrimeanPrince

Nice review! This issue was the best so far!

Posted by Blackestnight

im still waiting for this issue n the mail.

Edited by Pez85

@Gambler:  How is it fitting? The only person she's ever "loved" is Steve Trevor. With all she's been going through recently, how can she NOT be full of rage?

Not true, she loves the people of Earth and she loves her people. In fact I believe Star Sapphire makes mention of her love for the people of Earth.

@danhimself: Thank you I've been telling my friends for month that blackest night was awesome,but they just ignore me and say it sucks.Come on This is probobly the best thing DC has come up with,and Geoff is doing a great job on the story.If anything I say that DC was building up to this event for years.Final crisis got me really suspecios just because Bruce and John (Martin manhunter) Really think about it Alot of heros and villains died over the years,and now there coming back as BL zombies.DC you have blown my mind to a million bit size bits o_O.
LOL babs you know it was Doomsday that killed superman XD or maybe you were talking about the title? my bad then^_^ Great review!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted by danhimself
@crazed h3ro:  I still think that Johns brought back Superboy and Kid Flash just to make them immune from what I think is going to be the end outcome of Blackest Night
Posted by couzinit99

im really happy to see some optimistic views of Blackest Night from Comic Vine. Not surprising its from Babs over some other people lolol. i really loved the fact that it's coming along soooo greatly. the only gripe i could say about the book is their choice for Mera as the Red Lantern ((!!**SPOILER ALERT**!!)). I feel that there could be soooo many other characters chosen for that spot but i guess its an alright pick. i TOTALLY agree with u Babs on the review and just gotta say KEEP EM COMING :)
Posted by timrothsays

bad issue. Luthor with Orange Corps? Scarecrow with Sinestro? oh, COME ON!
If u think - THIS was in production for 5 years (Green Lantern: Rebirth-Sinestro War-BN)
and now we have poor battles and plot twists at the level of schoolboy  (or Loeb, whatever)

Posted by crazed_h3ro
@danhimself: I hope so I like Conner and Bart and to see them breaking the rings off there fingers are going to raise my standers for them 2,000% lol  XD I don't really know how its going to end but  i got my ideas. mybe it might be the white lantern coming or Hal becoming it,or something intirly
Posted by danhimself
@crazed h3ro: I don't think that any White Lanterns are going to appear...I'm thinking that with the team up of all the different Corps that the 7 Corps leaders will become the new Guardians of the Universe and the 7 corps will police the universe together...but I'm also thinking that this will end all the resurrections in the DC Universe and Johns has said before that Superboy and Kid Flash are 2 of his favorite characters and I think he wanted to get them back before the "no resurrection" policy goes into effect
Posted by crazed_h3ro
@danhimself: LOL like how you pointed out the "no resurrection" policy ^_^
Posted by starkiller95

flash in blue corps is awesome!

Posted by greenenvy

Great  Babs my favorite review from you because blackest night is just awsome as it closes the year nicely. Good to see you review anything green lantern again.

Posted by NightFang

Posted by DEGRAAF

What happened to her character was the most appropriate thing that could have happened. It made so much sense.
Posted by DEGRAAF

see i didnt exect all of them too but i thought that flash might keep his as the blue lantern of earth and Lex might not keep his as him being a lantern but maybe be able to capture the ring to harness its power or maybe brainiac would take it from him. He seems more  greedy than Lex

I'm inclined to agree... But hey they should give Jimmy Olsen a blue ring and Lois a pink one. Alfred should get a purple ring and Alfred should join the bulterian corps! they're turquoise! With Perry Mason and Oberon! look guys, im writing the next issue of Blackest Night!
