    There's always room for sinister figures in black robes. Just ask any Sith ever.

    also i picked up JLA #44 which ends with..
    Jade crashing to the earth in what looks like a coffin made of Starheart. i don't know how this picks up from her appearance in Brightest Day #0?

    Re: Black cloaked figure from the preview (and issue 53)
    Guessing its Scar since he/she specifically said stuff about being a former guarding and writing the oath.

    the figure also said something about working for the guardians before the manhunters, which makes me think it might not be a guardian. or it might be a maltusian, but just not of guardian status? i don't see why a guardian would work for the rest of the guardians. thinking maybe the diminutive size is a swerve.

    Considering how very dead she is that would be hard

    Maybe its Krona?

    Also GL 53, BEST SCENE
    Larfleeze perched on Sayd. Holy crap I was reading that in public and then I started laughing out loud.

    Scar was pretty much splattered during Black Night. I think the black cloaked figure
    is a new character, but is almost certainly from the same race as the Guardians. I don't think it's a Black Lantern or connected with Nekron though... I doubt an agent of darkness would be eager to bring about a 'Brightest Day.'

    Probably my favorite scene was the title page
    which revealed the temple buried beneath Ryut, and the monoliths bearing the different corps symbols. I thought the depths of Oa where Scar was hanging out were creepy, but it's nothing compared to the ruins in the depths of Ryut.

    I'm also happy to see what happened to Parallax, and that the other monoliths are empty - none of the other entities are simply going to be captives from the start.

    looks to a good epilogue issue to Blackest Night and Tomasi/Gleason's run on the book

    Which issue of Brightest Day has the Aquaman cover with the big white lantern symbol behind him? I actually really like that cover, and I like the Aquaman redesign to make him younger and less of a grizzly old bastard.

    Yes, assuming that it's light and not phosphorescent semen Jesus Witch Hunter why would you even say that.

    All the attention has gone to Hal's chin in that picture, but what I find even more disturbing than that is Aquaman's face. It looks like he has a babydoll mask for a face.

    I think it's safe to say that for such a big deal issue the cover is, shall we say, sub-par.

    i like David Finch less with each new cover. I didn't really know his work before he came to DC but I'm having a hard time seeing what the big deal is.

    See, I like a lot of his stuff, like his New Avengers and especially the Moon Knight issues he did, but sometimes he can be awful, for example Ultimatum.

    Was there supposed to be an issue this week? I didn't have it in my pull list and wonder if it was the shop not getting any or what.

    It's not twice a month then, hurp de durp

    Oh wow, GL #47 is so so so awesome.
    Kilowog quit being the recruit trainer (Stel is the new drill instructor)

    Isamot gave Vath his legs because he can regrow them

    Arisia punched a Guardian in the face

    The Broke Guy's bar!

    The Lantern Crypt is now a perennial tree on Mogo, each dead lantern being a leaf

    3rd Law repealed

    Hella jazzed for Emerald Warriors, this sets up a lot.

    Goodbye Gleason, I will pray for your return.

    I really dig Pasarin's art in that preview though. Looks like Van Sciver's work only it will be on time and people won't have big receding hairlines (especially women).

    will return in Emerald Warriors, which may tie in with why Hal is so pissed considering what is coming in the GL title involving the entities

    Where do you get Sodam from (other than Arisia's there and she's part of that story)?

    So Emerald Warriors is pretty much Tomasi's GLC minues Kyle, Soranik, and Iolande

    I can dig it

    Look at Arisia's eyes in that preview, it's a familiar symbol reflecting back.

    Oddly enough, I think the image of that guy with the snakes shooting the flames at the Lanterns is the most exciting thing about that teaser.

    I'm just so tired of seeing Lanterns only fight other guys with rings. Any villain that isn't another Lantern is a welcome change.
