    An interesting new direction for this group of villains now going the hero route. Will this last? I'm betting no. However, while this lasts I'm more than willing to continue to read! Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Nov 27, 2013

    This book remains a great, solid read every time I pick it up and has been one of the most refreshing surprises to come of the Corps creative shake-up. Its further proof that whos on a book matters as much, if not more, than which character is inside as a great creative team can do great things with practically anyone. This book continues to be one I look forward to every month. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - C Reyes Nov 29, 2013

    Out of all the lantern books I must admit that Charles Sole has done a great job of standing out and shining his light the brightest in terms of his storytelling, he accomplished what others before him have failed to do, he found a way to tap in the true potential of the Red Lanterns and lets not forget about Alessandro Vitti's solid line work, he was able to highlight the subtleties laid throughout the book making his style befitting for the task. though it seemed like this issue was meant to build a sense of dramatic tension within the story one can safely assume that the destination of this arc will change the way the DCnU and the readers look at its “blood hounds” for years to come.

    We The Nerdy - David Staniusz Dec 2, 2013

    Red Lanterns 25 is a great kick-start post “Lights out”. Considering this series? #25 is a great jumping on point to give it a try. You can never go wrong with Charles Soule. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - David Staniusz Nov 28, 2013

    Overall the series is in heading in a great direction. Soule seems to understand what makes the Red Lanterns appealing, being bad ass versions of their Green counterparts, and he is able to use Guy Gardner perfectly in order to get the reader interested. Red Lanterns is so much fun if you are interested at all in the series, pick it up now! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 2, 2013

    If you told me a year ago when I was picking up my first issue of Red Lanterns because of the Third Army story arc, that I'd still be reading and enjoying Red Lanterns, I'd call you a dirty liar, and good day sir.  But here I am looking forward to this Lantern book more than the rest.  Weird.  Soule has completely made this title his own, and made the interactions between the characters the most enjoyable part.  No more of this my rage is better than your rage stuff.  No sir.  So if you're not reading this title yet, I must insist that you drop what you're doing, and go to the closest comic shop, and tell the clerk behind the counter to please please slap you across the face with this title.  So yeah.... Good read. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Dec 17, 2013

    Soule effectively inserts character driven humor into a book about beings ruled by angerArtistically this issue looks great, especially the awesome cover that Alessandro Vitti provides for the issue. Vitti doesn't waste the background space, providing detail which adds a lot of character to the scenes. His work on Dex-Starr wonderfully conveys the disappointment and frustration the cat feels towards his master. Overall Red Lanterns #25 is a winner, using the down time to add some levity and character to the cast before plunging them back into action. While the Atrocitus subplot seems extraneous it is important to keep track of his actions as his path begins to wind back towards an intersection with his former followers. Red Lanterns has finally become a book really worth your $2.99 and I hope that the creative turnaround is reflected in the book's sales. Read Full Review

    Red Lanterns is more entertaining to read these days, but like the previous writer, Soule leaves his anger at the door. Read Full Review

    Comics Refueled - vashmcdash Nov 27, 2013

    A very slow and awkward start for the new story arc for the Reds. Soulem, Vitti andEltaeb have done such great work in the past I have faith that this is just a bump in the rode and things will definitely pick up the next couple of issues. Read Full Review

    Lots of fun. There's a looming sense of dread as to what's coming for the Red Lanterns taking over as guardians of Earth's sector. It just can't play it well, no matter how well intentioned everything is. Great stuff.
