And Then I Read: BRIGHTEST DAY 9

By the ninth issue of a series, I expect to have some idea of what’s driving the plot, but in this case, I don’t. Mysteries still abound, unexplained events continue, and heroes struggle both physically and mentally with an unknown power, given a font and style that suggest a white lantern, but we never see it. Is it the white lantern from earlier issues, now a part of all these characters? If so, it’s far from clear.

The largest story segment is a conflict between the Martian Manhunter and Green Arrow, in a mystic forest of some kind that GA is protecting, while MM wants to burn it. The whys are all unknown. I’m getting impatient. Just barely recommended.
