Brightest Day #0
The biggest event in comics continues as BRIGHTEST DAY burns back the BLACKEST NIGHT from the writing team behind GREEN LANTERN AND GREEN LANTERN CORPS - Geoff Johns and Peter J. Tomasi! And don't miss the exciting DC Comics debut of red hot cover artist David Finch (New Avengers, Ultimatum)!
The effects that the already classic BLACKEST NIGHT will have on the DC Universe will be felt for years to come and this issue not only sets the stage for the new ongoing biweekly DC Universe book BRIGHTEST DAY, but also the next exciting era of the DC Universe!
GFEST View: Lot riding on this weekly series. Countdown, Trinity, enough said. Blackest Night lived up to the hype. Will brightest day be the next 52?
As the landmark700th issue nears, Dick Grayson's life as The Dark Knight heats up in a big way. With Black Mask out of the way for good, the Falcone crime family attempts to fill that void - with no regard for the safety of Gotham City's citizens! And what's going on with the Riddler?
GFEST View: Love the Riddler but refuse to read Batman until the REAL GOD DAMN BATMAN returns. You hear me Dan Didio? Bring back Bruce Wayne Now! Not six months from now!!
A BRIGHTEST DAY tie-in! Get in on the ground floor of DC's next epic in the making! The Flash races out of BLACKEST NIGHT and into his own monthly title as the all-new adventures of The Fastest Man Alive start with 'Case One: The Dastardly Death of the Rogues!'
Barry Allen runs back to his life in Central City, but when one of the Rogues turns up murdered under mysterious circumstances, it's up to The Flash to not only solve this bizarre crime, but protect those that are still targeted by the elusive killer. Plus, don't miss a peek into the future of the Flash universe in this special, extra-sized starting point issue!
GFEST View: Not a huge Flash fan, but I am interested to see what occurs with Barry Allen after Blackest Night and into Brightest Day. I will pick it up but Wally West will always be Flash to me.
In this new storyline, Rose Red has finally hit rock bottom. Does she stay there or start the long, tortuous climb back up?
We're hoping for the latter, since this new arc is named after her, and we wouldn't have much of a story without her.
The Farm is in chaos, as many factions compete to fill the void of her missing leadership. And there's a big magical fight brewing down in the town square, right under her window.
GFEST View: Fables whore. I freely admit it! Love, love, love this series.
Kill Shakespeare #1
What Fables does for fairy tales, Kill Shakespeare does with the greatest writer of all time.
This dark take on the Bard pits his greatest heroes (Hamlet, Juliet, Othello Falstaff) against his most menacing villains (Richard III, Lady Macbeth, Iago) in an epic adventure to find and kill a reclusive wizard named William Shakespeare. This debut- featuring a full 32-page story-will change the way you look at Shakespeare forever.
GFEST View: This series peeks my interest but the line, “What Fables does for fairy tales, Kill Shakespeare does with the greatest writer of all time.” sold me on issue #1.
INTERNATIONAL FLAVOR,' Conclusion. Cannibal vs. bloodsucker.
GFEST View: Best new series in the last year. If you’re not reading it start!
