    I thought issue #3 was a big improvement over #2, especially the Barry, Wally and Bart thread. I also really liked the way Scott Kolins used visual parallels, both within this issue and echoing images from earlier in the miniseries.

Other than some Captain Cold and Mirror Master handling did not care for this issue at all. Or the mini for that matter. However upon reading your post here, have to agree that there were some okay parallels. All the Blackest Night elements dealing with the ring's powers was felt messy by both meanings.

    As or the Boomerang story...I thought it worked well on its own as a chillingly effective portrayal of someone lost and desperate turning down the wrong path and letting himself be manipulated and falling into darkness (kind of a Tales of the Black Freighter story). In the long run, though, I think it damages the character.

Fair enough. Too bad Boomer junior proved to be such a loser. It could be refreshing to get a 100% new Captain Boomerang with the new series now. Ditto the with neat name (and brief intro?) of SANDBLAST.

    Now if only the story actually had a conclusion and not a big "To be continued in..." sign at the end.

Argh. That was not cool. Exasperated by an intriguing background tease of a Black Ring Spectre!
