Brightest Day #11

Although a lot of my favorite comics / graphic novels to read are of the non superhero variety, there really is a lot of good superhero comics out these days. One of the very best is Brightest Day, with the last two issues being especially good. I think the last two issues of Brightest Day (issues #10 and #11) are as good as they are because they don't try to feature too many characters, but at the same time there's a lot going on and really has a forward momentum that isn't just spinning its wheels or is just page after page of story padding.

If you count Brightest Day, there are four Green Lantern titles: Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps, and Green Lantern Emerald Warriors. I often say that there shouldn't be this many titles for one character or group of similar characters, but the Green Lantern titles are one of those exception to the rule, in that they are all very good, with top notch creative talent.

Just a look at these three pages and cover from Brightest Day #11, should show anyone who loves great epic superhero comics, that Brightest Day is just a fantastic looking book.

If you've dropped Brightest Day from the comics you've picked up on a regular basis, I can understand that with the sea of titles out there tough choices have to be made, I just think you may want to look at Brightest Day again and give that hard cut to another title that you're maybe just getting out of inertia. And there's a couple of double page spreads in Brightest Day #11 that I haven't reproduced here that just have to be seen!
