Express-Times fawns over Blackest Night

And now, the LeHigh Valley Express-Times has taken the time to blatantly sugarcoat Blackest Night. Not much more to comment on here, but I guess the following is worth a try:
On Earth, the heroes are having problems of their own as Hawkman and Hawkgirl are attacked by zombie Black Lanterns Ralph (Elongated Man) and Sue Dibny.

"Blackest Night" has been a story a long time coming and the first issue really delivers.

Johns continues to craft DC's best superhero comic.
Correction: Johns has crafted one of the worst in DC history, and of his own career. No mention here of the gore and bloodletting that accompanies this shameless miniseries in its perpetuation of death, nihilism and elimination of any true sense of humor for the DCU, the main problem with this article.
With every new color ring he's introduced, Johns has escalated the danger the Green Lanterns faced.
I think this color scheming nonsense has already gone much too far, to the point where all color has been totally drained. Red Lanterns, Blue Lanterns, Orange Lanterns, etc. Who needs it. It's way too much already. A box of crayons would be much more appealing than this.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
