Green Lantern #60

You'd think a comic showcasing two of my favorite DC heroes would be the kind of thing I'd enjoy. You'd be wrong.

Writer Geoff Johns continues the Brightest Day story arc by having Parallax find a new host in Barry Allen. What follows is a rather boring battle between the Flash and Green Lantern as he tries to convince Parallax to leave his best friend.

The only point of any interest here is the final reveal of the man tracking down the entities for his own ends, Krona - the Oan scientist responsible for the creation of the Multiverse and the Antimatter Universe.

I'm not sure whether anything can save the supremely disappointing Brightest Day, but the involvement of Krona is at least something new that I don't hate about the the event. However, even Krona's involement doesn't make this badly thought-out issue any easier to swallow. Pass.
