GOOD THING: Ummm... they do make it easy for new readers to identify all the characters and learn their names and superpowers.
BAD THING: That's about all you learn about most of these characters.
The Final Verdict: Avoid it. I actually like Space Opera and even I couldn't be buggered to care about most of this issue. It has jack and squat to do with Blackest Night up until the very end and the main character treats the intrusion of the Black Lanterns as an annoyance rather than the threat they should be.
