I came across this “100 Issues Ago” panel in an old Justice League of America and thought I’d tidy it up and re-purpose it. If one month = one issue, what was I reading 100 Issues Ago?
Blackest Night comes barrelling to an end with this issue, with a ton of dead characters restored to life with white rings, Nekron defeated once and for all and the whole of the DCU seemingly geared up to begin Brightest Day.
As mad, sprawling, interconnected crossovers go, Blackest Night was great fun, with the various Rainbow Corps really getting a chance to shine. Sure, it had what felt like a bajillion crossovers into other series, but Geoff Johns was still writing hopeful stories at this point; with Flashpoint and Forever Evil to come in later years, this was probably the last of Johns big stories that I really enjoyed.
