The monumental conclusion to BRIGHTEST DAY occurred in the Star City’s forest. With the re-emergence of Swamp Thing, the forest’s role was no longer clouded with mystery.

Krul and features art by Diogenes Neves, Vicente Cifuentes and Oclair Albert, a cover by David Aja, and a variant cover by Joe Prado and Rod Reis.

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.
