First, the good. Having already gotten several year-long series under its belt, DC has learned from experience and banked some of its best talent for this project. Geoff Johns and Peter Tomasi co-write Brightest Day, bringing the same accessibility and ease of prose that made the current Green Lantern books such a success. Artistic collaborators Ivan Reis and Patrick Gleason are also on board, as well as Scott Clark, Joe Prado and Adrian Syaf. It's an impressive roster, and unlike 52 and Countdown to Final Crisis, here each artist is assigned a specific set of characters and their story arc. So all the Aquaman segments are drawn by Reis, all of Martian Manhunter's odyssey is handled by Gleason, and so forth.Read more ›
Visually, it looked very good on the Kindle and I had no problem with it.
This is a relative easy-to-read book. There were 2 or 3 times that I had to re-read the same page or maybe, maybe go back a few pages just to understand a little better the story, but I don't regret it. The story is well-placed and the art is very good!!!!
Note: You must read 'Blackest Night' first, there is no doubt about it..
I also read Vol. #2 (which is better) and I am currently reading Vol. #3.
I'll definitely recommend this for reading.
The dustjacket and pages are top quality. They don't bind with the wind. Glossy and strong. The hardback is white with the White Lantern's logo in gold. Very pretty.
The story itself is slow. You don't know what in places is going on. At the end of the book they give you another piece of the puzzle that doesn't really tells you everything, but keep you interested. I know I did.
I was somewhat tired when I reach half the book and there was no explanation of why the White Rings bring some heroes/villains to life. What's Deadman's mission?. But then I remembered "this is just volume 1".
Having that in mind, the book is not bad. The end left me wanting for more, and the art is pretty good too.
The cover gallery is what I enjoy the most. There's a double spread on the people that came back to life at the end of Blackest Night. All of them in a table and the color entities in the center. VERY cool!!!.
I didn't dislike the book, but I guess this will remain to be seen on the following volumes. Hope is good!.
Brightest Day coninutes right after the mega-event Blackest Night, and explores the new lives of most of the reborn heroes and villains(Max Lord is postlighted in Jstice League: Generation Lost, Zoom & Captain Boomerang in Flash, Jade in JLA and GLC I think.) I does a big amount of jumping around between characters at first but then goes into large chunks of story being focused onto one character. The larger chunks that are fosuced on just one or two characters are great and do a little bit of retconning to provide new wrinkles to the characters or new threats, especially in the case of Firestorm. The story telling is great at points but personally I don't really care for the Deadman/Dove storyline. It just doesn't appeal to me. I never really got into these characters before this series but find myself really enjoying the stories. I never thought I'd be excited about a Hawkman or Aquaman story. The art team also does a good job of blending their styles to fit the story-telling.
Just because it says Brightest Day doesn't mean the stories are light either, so expect the same gritty kind of story-telling that you usually read in other DC books. I am really liking the direction that Johns and Tomasi are taking these characters and look forward the the future of them as well. Also, check out the other books under the Brightest Day banner like Green Lantern, Flash, and Justice League Generation Lost.

Following the Epic Blackest Night event, Brightest Day was honestly kind of a let down. They were just trying to do too much at the same time. Read morePublished 1 month ago by H

It is what i expected. Totally Recommend this Collection for all Dc fans. Colors and argument are awesome. So dont waste your time and get it.Published on May 9, 2014 by Nicolas M. G.
The story line was very well developed, even though it was certainly one of the more morbid storylines. Overall, I would recommend this title for any DC fan.Published on April 8, 2014 by Brian Wilson
