There are only three issues left of the bestselling BRIGHTEST DAY series. Issue 22 is cryptically titled “The End and The Beginning” and it’s all about Firestorm’s struggle to be the best hero that he can be.

Tomasi and with art by Scott Clark, Ivan Reis, and Joe Prado, BRIGHTEST DAY #22, is on sale in stores today. [gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"]
Following the exciting conclusion to Brightest Day, the new protector of Earth has been chosen - but one reluctant hero makes a return to try and convince Batman, Superman and the rest of the DC Universe's heroes that this may not be a good thing at all. BRIGHTEST DAY AFTERMATH: THE SEARCH will be a three-part miniseries written by Jonathan Vankin and drawn by Marco Castiello chronicling the fallout of Brightest Day. We can't give away too much about it now, but keep reading Brightest Day and keep an eye on The Source for more clues. THE SEARCH begins in June.

Aquaman's second chance at life hasn't quite worked out the way he expected. His wife has betrayed him, and his powers don't work like they should.
