    An outstanding conclusion to an outstanding storyline. The Red Lanterns have knocked it out of the park with this finale. Read Full Review

    Besides for a mysterious romances and a character that didn't amount to much, this was an unbelievably enjoyable issue and conclusion to the Atrocitus War.  Each time I turned a page it seemed I was shocked by something new and almost all the characters stood out in their own for this ending, which for a roster this big is really something.  We've got a lot of good books out this week, but this one definitely needs to be on your pull list.

    Red Lanterns continues to be an underappreciated gem that's been flying under the radar for too long. Read Full Review

    This story is full of insane action, tragic and touching moments, and pure Gardner badassery. Soule leaves the survivors in some interesting new places, and fans should be excited to see where Soule plans on taking these characters next. Read Full Review

    This was a very good ending to a very good prolonged run. The characterization of all the Reds was solid. But the faceoff between Guy and Atrocitus was perfect. Read Full Review

    Despite some of the few errors I mentioned,Red Lanterns #34 was fun and still gave readers a satisfying conclusion to this story arc. It had you excited to see Guy trying his best. It also makes you want to see what Guy will do next in the series. We will can possibly expect a Future's End special to see the full outcome of the choices Guy has made in Red Lanterns #34.

    This issue may not have been the best issue to start off with due to all the new characters introduced recently, like Judge, or all the big changes that have occurred during Charles Soule's run. Did you know Supergirl was a Red Lantern? But, this issue had enough going on for it and I was given enough information to enjoy the ending and feel satisfied with the new direction that will be taking place soon. The direction this title is heading at the end of this story along with the big battles, crazy developments, and kinetic art have made me intrigued and I'm a new fan of The Red Lanterns series. I will continue to follow this series from here on and also catch up with back issues. If you like action, check this issue out! Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 30, 2014

    The Red Lanterns are beasts of rage, and this was one truly gnarly fight. Guy Gardner as the Ultimate Red Lantern was a sweet moment. It's just a shame Soule sacrificed so many of the excellent supporting characters in battle. Skallox and Zox were awesome supporting characters, much cooler than any non-human Green Lantern these days. It's sad to see them go. But at least Rankorr has come out of all of this unscathed. I just keep liking him more and more. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jeremy Eloi Aug 29, 2014

    Overall, this issue is a bit anticlimactic. Being the final issue in an otherwise great arc it feels that there are a lot of aspects that seem to be missing. This especially comes through with the character interactions that have been great during Charles Soule's run. However, this issue is no means bad and does lead to some interesting things. This arc has been one of the best in this title and cements its place as one of the best Lantern books being published. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Aug 27, 2014

    This is an unfortunate note to leave an arc that Ive otherwise been crazy about on. Its not a bad issue nor is it a bad ending by any stretch, but Soule has done such an amazing job up until now with these characters that I couldnt help but feel disappointed with how things resolved here. Im still looking forward to seeing what he does with the future of the title, and Im a huge fan of the changes hes made to Gardner, but this wasnt the strongest end to a great storyline.

    Guy goes all Emerald Twilight on AtrocitusRed Lanterns #34 provides a conclusion to Charles Soule's first major chapter in the saga of the Red Lantern Corps.  With the exception of the fate of the Five Inversions the issue ties things up pretty handily, but not without posing questions for the future of the series.  If not for what appears to be some major continuity bending it's a good issue, but having to judge the book by what little we have to go on it's hard not to knock the issue down a peg or two.  I really hope that Soule answers the nagging issue of the removal of the rings as he's done so well on the series that it would be a shame to see something this significant dismissed without explanation.  Three out of five lanterns.
