Exile’s Read of the Week – 3/31/10 – Blackest Night #8

BLACKEST NIGHT #8 Story: GEOFF JOHNS Art and Cover: IVAN REIS, OCLAIR ALBERT and JOE PRADO Publisher: DC I thought long and hard about what the RotW was going to be this week but anyone who is following the DCU knows there really isn’t any other choice than Blackest Night #8. The build up to this moment could have led to an enormous let down, as has happened to many recent “event” stories (Final Crisis, Civil War I’m looking in your direction). but Geoff Johns shows why he is DC’s go to guy.

Exile on Comics – Read of the Week – 1/20/10 – Starman #81

Starman #81 A Blackest Night tie in Story: James Robison Art: Fernando Dagnino & Bill Sienkiewicz Cover: Tony Harris Publisher:DC To be honest, this book was on my shortlist for book of the week, between, Fables 92 (King Flycatcher brings Baseball to the homeworlds!) and Farscape #3 (just because that book keeps getting better, and the characters ring true). In my heart, I was really afraid that it was only my list because of my fondness for the characters and the series.
