Blackest Night: The Flash #2

Kollins' art is superb, Johns' story goes beyond the formula for a very good "Flash" tie-in to "Blackest Night."

Doom Patrol #6

Following the "Blackest Night" issues is no easy task, so Giffen, Clark, and crew decide to reflect on what was. This isn't your standard navel-gazing though. It's navel-gazing, "Doom Patrol" style.
