Brightest Day #0 Preview

A rather depressing start...

Anyway, Boston approaches his tombstone with a sledgehammer and destroys it. After reflecting upon how he has no idea how to start his new life and how he has no one to turn to because during his first life he was a bastard... he notices the poor dead baby bird.

And suddenly his new role may have become a bit more clearer.

In this context, I am including Judeo to note that Johns is giving equal time to the Old Testament part of the mythology as the New Testament. The rainbow corps and the use of Dove mirrors the tale of Noah's arc and Gehenna's death in Brightest Night was a nod to fate of Lot's wife, to give several examples. Obviously, the above seen is more in line with the Christian part of Judeo-Christian mythology.

(Yes, Johns isn't doing much in the way of Talmudic references. He also hasn't spent much time referencing the epistles either.)
