OK, this special edition is due to the fact that once I read Blackest Night about 3 times, I just can't get into anything else tonight and the rest of the reactions will have to wait.
Basically my first impression was : WOW!! This was well worth the wait. I did something that I never do, and that is buy my books, sit on the couch in the comic shop and read the issue right there on the spot. Typically I wait until I get home but I just couldn't. Unbelievable story and art, and a definite page turner.
Reviews coming later in the week for this and everything else.
