Well…that’s over. Although I didn’t hate Blackest Night, DC’s latest “epic event” became a chore to read. There was simply too much going on here (most of it not that interesting).
I have no doubt we’ll be seeing the reverberations from these events across the DCU (likely for years). Hopefully the legacy of Blackest Night will be better than the mini-series itself. Did Blackest Night leave the DCU in a better place than it found it? Time will tell.
Not too many surprises here (other than the return of the Martian Manhunter far earlier than I expected). If you made it this far into the series you’ll no doubt see it through, though my final reaction is one of relief. Maybe now DC can get back to telling smaller stories and allow most of the Rainbow Brite Corps to fade into the background.
