Today sees the release of BRIGHTEST DAY #23, the series' penultimate issue. As a fan, I've got push-pull issues with endings. An an entertainment junkie, I often hurry to the end for the big reveal. Who lives? Who dies? Oh, her father was the killer. The super advanced robots are dead. A great ending is satisfying, but there's a sadness, too. We're never going back to the island. Our favorite hero or our favorite villain is dead. Their stories are over. The end. BRIGHTEST DAY #23 is written by Geoff Johns and Peter Tomasi, with art by Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, Norm Rapmund and Oclair Albert. It hits stores today and discloses certain dark secrets in the heart of the forest, including the identity of the Dark Avatar. The characters' journey that we've followed for 23 issues is nearing it's conclusion. Once the series concludes, I'll miss it. It's been a great ride. So, you're wondering, is there a big payoff?
