CBR Review: Blackest Night #4

I recently reviewed Blackest Night #4 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "We’re halfway through DC big event of the year and, on the second and third pages of Blackest Night #4, a double-page spread where Barry Allen is confronted by a legion of Black Lantern supervillains, the question that seems to be on the minds of all involved is asked by Black Lantern Firestorm: 'Cool, right?' That’s what this event seems to come down to: do you find the idea of resurrected heroes, villains, and supporting characters from DC’s past coming back to life to terrorize the still-living heroes cool? Sadly, this issue doesn’t really extend beyond that idea, causing me to wonder if, perhaps, the goal should have been producing something ‘good’ instead of something ‘cool.’"
