    Red Lanterns has been panned by quite a few reviewers in the past, myself included. This particular issue is an interesting study in human nature and as Milligan's run nears its end this feels much like the beginning of closure. With Atrocitus calling for his own head I'm wondering if he will indeed survive to lead the Red Lantern Corps or if his self loathing and his past with the Inversions will literally catch up to him. Four out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    Of all the Lanterns to get emotion-tortured, Atrocitus' "what if?" story rang the most true. Peter Milligan should be congratulated for being able to truly dive into the characterization of Atrocitus and show us something uncompromising and controversial. The subplot of the Great Heart and Rankorr's awkward romance scenes aren't anywhere near as good, but with this beleaguered series, you take what you can get. Read Full Review

    I sincerely think DC came up with the idea of "WTF certified" after reading this cliffhanger. It's not the kind of twist that'll make you thrilled for the next issue. Instead, it'll make you scratch your head and possibly say out loud to yourself, "wait, what?" Have fun trying to accurately guess the reasoning behind this one!At this point it's pretty much business as usual with this book. It looks great and, while the story isn't going to blow you away, it's certainly not terrible. If you've been enjoying the book thus far or want an Atrocitus focused story, odds are you'll have a decent time with this one... even if the ending is apparently all kinds of crazy.
