What I Liked about Blackest Night

That the title of this post just rhymed :P
But Besides that 
A Lot!

I'll admit since I'm only just recently got into Comics this last year I'm bouncing around a bit. I generally buy a comic and/or set, looking up online what happened before it, read the comic, 
then look up more online, and then read it again to understand everything. 
If I could I read every comic starting from the 1940s, but 
It's truly difficult to find them all...

As a large Flash Fan and rekindling my Love of Green Lantern 
it wasn't long before I found out about Blackest Night, where Barry becomes the Blue Lantern Flash!
As USA Weekend says, "The Talk of the Comic Book World"
And it still is 5+years after it's first publishing!

So The Things I Liked about the Blackest Night...

* It's begins shortly after Flash Rebirth - which I got the first Story arc of Flash Rebirth for   
        Christmas, so I had a footing on what was going on... Green Lantern Rebirth was before this as  
        well, I want to read that now too :P
* It really fleshes out the mythos of the Green Lantern Origins as well as the Emotional Spectrum of 
        Light and all the other Corps - I recently watched almost all of the Green Lantern: The Animated 
        Series(2011) which dealt with a lot of the other Corps. I didn't really know or fully understood 
        the other Corps until I read Blackest Night. Now I want to read more!
* The Captain Planet reference - Before I read the panel, just looking at the picture, I thought 
        "Captain Planet" and then I read "I think I saw this on a Saturday Morning Cartoon." I had to 
        take a small break after Laughing so Hard!
* The most inspirational line in the book, from the Blue Lantern Flash of Hope himself - 
        "Life Doesn't Give us Purpose, We Give Life Purpose." 
* Bart Allen - He's my one of my Top Favorite Characters in the DC Universe, it's an honest tie 
        between Barry, Bart, and Hal Jordan. I just can't Decide, although Bart in Blackest Night went 
        from awesomely funny to Terrifying. I just sort of Laughed Out Loud when He was talking to 
        the Flashes and realized last minute he was heading right at the Black Lantern! Then When He 
        became a Black Lantern, he was just scary!
* Barry and Hal both Start and End the Story of the Blackest Night...
* The Art Work! - It was just truly amazing! It was just the story that kept me going, but the detailed 
        artwork in each panel! I Loved it, I felt it! It was just incredible!

Honestly there is just so much I could talk about in this book,
But not enough time in the day.

The Next read on my List is, you Guessed it!
