    With the second chapter of the post relaunch DCU about get underway I find myself looking forward to how Red Lanterns will fit into the mix and seeing the Five Inversions reunited, not to mention seeing how the vision of Atrocitus leading the Manhunters plays out.  Issue twelve does a really good job of putting the important pieces of the puzzle together and provides some great moments for most of the recurring cast.  Four out of five lanterns.

    With the plot seeds Milligan plants in this issue, the development of event and conflict becomes more apparent. Now that Atrocitus has been forced to embrace his greatest mistake, hopefully we can look forward to at least one issue that doesn't include the Red Lantern leader whining about the tragedy of his past and instead celebrates as part of the galactic spectacle surrounding him and his Lanterns. "Red Lanterns" should be about battle and rage, not navel-gazing and pondering. I'm much more interested in conflicts like the one between Abysmus and Atrocitus than I am in Atrocitus once more reflecting on the day the Manhunters took Ryut. Read Full Review

    Atrocitus and his Red Lanterns have been through a lot over these past twelve issues, but it's hard to say whether they've proven themselves worthy of their own title. Many tidbits about their Corps were revealed, but none added to the mythology in a meaningful way like we saw throughout Geoff Johns's Green Lantern series. Bleez and Rankorr were interesting players that never had their potential tapped, leaving the weight of the title on the ever-postulating Atrocitus's shoulders. The parts worth savoring were far and few in between, but the conclusion of the first mega-arc does give this title some legs to stand on, albeit shaky ones. Read Full Review
