Guy carries the guilt of the lives lost in the Atrocitus War, and while hes dedicated his life to finding redemption through safeguarding Earth, can a man carrying a death wish truly be a hero?

    An offbeat issue that shows how anger can destroy. Highly enjoyable. Read Full Review

    This was a depressing issue. It shows how grim and blighted a world filled with super-powered amoral people would be. And it shows how living a life like Guy's could burn the goodness out of anyone. It is a powerful and dark issue. Well written and well drawn. Read Full Review

    Red Lanterns #38 is a dark issue and rightfully so as Guy Gardner embarks on a solemn journey to protect the Earth from an emotional plague he himself brought on humanity.  Equal parts horror movie and psychological exploration, the issue never feels weighed down by the heavy narrative thanks to writer Landry Walker's effective script and Jim Calafiore's engaging visuals.  The first chapter in the final storyline for this series is off to a nice start and I'm really looking forward to seeing how Guy frees humanity, and himself, for this heavy emotional burden.  Four out of five lanterns.

    All in all Red Lanterns #38 is okay. I wish there was more in this issue, but I'm okay with what I got. I'm interested to see where this will go for Guy since this will take a toll on him. I do wonder if this will play a big part in the last few issues of Red Lanterns, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see. Read Full Review

    This series is down to its final few issues. Unfortunately, the now-Marvel exclusive Charles Soule isn't on board to cap off the series and finish his ongoing plot threads. Read Full Review

    Now that GODHEAD is over and we can get back to business with our Lantern books, I was really excited to see where Landry Walker was going to take us with our final issues to this series.  All we got though was the continuation of Guy Gardner's "woe is me" attitude and a story that felt a little off.

    All narration, and no substance. Reads like a Scott Lobdell comic. Wish Soule stayed on to see this through.

    I liked the story here. The art was good not great. Story really carried it though. I thought without Soule it would have been lame but not a bad issue.

    I was worried to hear that Charles Soule won't finish the series up, but this issue was pretty good. The art looks good, fits with the gritty context of the story. There's a lot of narration, but it fits. It's a shame that Godhead screwed up the flow of the storyline Soule had going but we're back to the dark place we left off at so hopefully the conclusion is satisfying.

    So Atrocitus destroyed earth? No other heroes helped. Um, we need Soule back.
