    The red ring was drawn to Moore like a moth to a flame and the end result produces the first human Red Lantern. Read Full Review

    So in and of itself, this issues is quite good. Like many other reviewers, however, I share their fear that the Red Lanterns may become an unfocused title that no one will read. Read Full Review

    If nothing else, I'm hanging on by a thread hoping we will see that before they are replaced by a third wave New 52 book takes its place. Read Full Review

    Issue six makes a step in the right direction in some ways, but fumbles over itself in others.  Three out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    Meanwhile, Atrocitus is challenged by Bleez for leadership of the Red Lanterns, but even that feud falls flat. At issue #6, this plot thread is only now getting to a real conflict when it should happened in issue #2 if it was ever going to be engaging and meaningful. The Red Lanterns are all about rage expressed through fiery blood vomit, so why the slow boil? At this point, it is starting to feel misogynistic to yet again see Atrocitus beat up Bleez as he yells at her -- it's something he has done in three of the six issues. Worse, Ed Benes and Diego Bernard's pencils are still spotty, and the design for the human Red Lantern feels uninspired. Read Full Review

    Man oh man... This book is taking a turn for the worse. This is a great creative team and some great new DC characters, but something is not working, and I'm not sure how much longer this can last. I really like the Jack Moore character and seeing the team slowly start to come together, but I couldn't stand the fact there was a fill-in artist whose art did not mesh well with Benes. This book really isn't going anywhere and I'm getting a bit bored. I do not recommend this issue. Read Full Review
