The hordes of undead continue to lay seige to the DC universe in Blackest Night issue six. Six issues in and for me its official: Blackest Night rules! Unlike a lot of the “event books” to come out of the big two over the past couple of years this one has actually been an awesome read thus far.
If you don’t like action and great art then this book isn’t for you. At this point in the series the proverbial “poop” has already hit the fan. Nekron’s quest to destroy all life is in full swing as his Black Lanterns swarm to Earth for the massacre. Ganthet makes a surprise move that is sure to raise more than a few eyebrows and in the story buy time for the forces of light to gather.
This has been an incredible story and I think that it is going to be remembered alongside the greatest stories and events that DC comics has put out over the past 75+ years.
RATING: 9 out of 10
