    Evil hasn't been thisdeliciously fun since Darth Vader first strode across the silver screen. This is a good jumping on issue if you haven't given this a try. Here's your chance to “Taste the rage-bow”! I think you'll like it! Read Full Review

    A lot of interesting questions are raised by Rancorr's innermonologue, which will lead to some interesting confrontations for the future, and tension is building up better than I thought possible. I guess it proves that as long as you have a capable writer behind the wheel, any comic book can have a great story. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, I've liked these last two issues a little more than the few before them, but it's hard to imagine what the future of this book really is. Peter Milligan can get the job done, but he's missing more than he's hitting here. I can kind of see what he wanted to do with this book, but it's not quite where it needs to be. Read Full Review

    Red Lantern number seven is better that some of the previous issues in terms of moving ahead with a story and making it the focal point of the series.  Rankorr's inner monologue is a high point for the issue as is the continued foreshadowing of a major struggle for leadership with the Red Lantern Corps.  Three out of five lanterns.

    The overall art quality on this book has never been terrible, even with art duties split between Ed Benes and Diego Bernard, but there are some glaring problems with this issue. The fight between Rankorr and Guy misses a few action beats, which causes some strained exposition to be added to fill in the blanks. In the same fight, a word balloon comes from Rankorr when it ought to be from Guy. The error does not break the book, but it is just one more thing that makes this issue more of a miss than a hit.
