As the first season of AMC’s new monster hit (pun intended), The Walking Dead, reaches its mid-point, we at MLD decided it was a good time to gather up some of our regulars to chat about what we’ve seen so far.

We’re at the halfway point in Brightest Day, and it seems like a good time to address some aspects of where the story stands. With 13 issues out, I think it’s fair to start asking some questions about how this series has progressed, where it’s going and whether it’s worth sticking around for.

REVIEW: Brightest Day #13

Posted by under *dislike, Comics | Join The Discussion |

Brightest Day #13 is in stores this week, and this is going to be a tough one to discuss. The book wasn’t what either of us were expecting and continued in very much the same vein as issue 12.
