"Atrocities" kicks into gear - the epic that the last year of RED LANTERNS has been building to all along! It's open war between Atrocitus and Guy Gardner - and there's a powerful squadron of Red Lanterns on each side! But Guy Gardner could never have imagined what Atrocitus has been planning all this time... And he couldn't imagine that one of his closest friends would refuse to stand by his side!

    Overall, Red Lanterns #33 is a very good issue. The story is great and the dialogue is the best it has been in a while. The issue also effectively sets up the upcoming conflict between Guy Gardner and Atrocitus. This is a must read and a great way to start the war between the two factions of the Red Lantern Corps.

    Overall Red Lanterns #33 was exciting, which should get readers pumped up for the Red Lanterns very first annual which comes out in stores this Wednesday. If you haven't bought this issue yet, I highly suggest you do along with the previous issue just to more Red Lanterns gearing up to their final battle. Read Full Review

    One of the good things about Red Lanterns being a book that gets an Annual next week is that you dont have to wait another month to see the continuation of the story here. It should be awesome to see what happens next week, and with Soule being one of DC Comics most talented writers right now, the rest of Atrocities should continue to impress, much like the majority of this issue has.

    Outright Geekery - Adam Jul 24, 2014

    This is by far the best title in the Green Lantern franchise. This is the best writing and character development that Guy Gardner has received in years and the great writing extends to the extended cast. If you are looking for a ridiculous book filled with compelling antiheroes then this is the book for you. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 24, 2014

    While there isn't a lot of action to speak of this month, I did find enjoyment in seeing a calm before the storm between Guy Gardner and this month's special guest John Stewart. But even though I enjoyed the slower paced issue, I have to say that I'm getting antsy for this war to begin already. It just keeps building and building and right when you think it's going to be an all out rage fest, it builds some more. So if you're looking for a break from the rage then pick this issue up to chill out and watch two old friends share a brew and a bar fight together, while we wait for the war to start.

    Red Lanterns #33 is a great read with three distinct and well balanced plots supplemented with a considerable amount of character.  The creative team on the series have done wonders to turn the title into one of the best in the Lantern family by taking what could be a one dimensional cast and adding a lot of character.  Other than ignoring the perceived death of Supergirl this issue there's a lot to like, but the oversight was important enough to me to reduce the rating for this issue.  Three out of five lanterns.

    Buy this issue if you like two men commiserating about their failed love lives, high collars, or you've just got to have one more comic book with John Stewart and Guy Gardner. Read Full Review

    While a step down for this series, it's still a cut above a lot of other books you could get. In the year (already?!?) of post-Johns Lantern books, this issue is a slight bump in an otherwise enjoyable road.

    A little but underwhelming from what I expect from Charles Soule mostly because there isn't much in terms of moving the overall story forward. This has been a book I really look forward to lately and I hope we get back on track but his current workload has me a bit concerned.

    The plot barely inches forward but there is good characterization here. The art is still good, though I think the posing in the bar fight could have been more dynamic.

    Can somebody please change Guy Gardner's costume? So lame. Other than trying to take him seriously while he galavants around with that 70's look &... those.. teeth, it's been great seeing where this title goes.
