Who is it that brings death to all on Ysmault? Jack Moore could not have become a Red Lantern at a more apocalyptic time. But what's worse: being caught in Atrocitus and Bleez's civil war, or taking the blame for the infection spreading throughout the Red Lantern Corps? Facing extinction, how long until all the Red Lanterns burn out?

    Loved the story, but really disappointed in the art. Comics are a visual medium, so I have to lean on that contribution more so that those of the others. C'mon, DC! I expect better! Read Full Review

    What's interesting is that while this is my least favorite of all the Green Lantern titles in the New 52, this one is by far the least of a chore to read. It's not wowing me, but it's far easier to read than the other GL books. Read Full Review

    After eight issues I'm still struggling to find the enjoyment with Red Lanterns that I do with other books.  I really do want to love this series but I find that I'm really only reading out of wanting to keep tabs on the Red Lanterns between their appearances in the rest of the DC Universe.  Despite a couple of pieces of new information this issue is just average at best.  Three out of five lanterns.

    The art may as well be a collage of monsters drawn on red paper. If the likes of demonic Atrocitus, freakish Zilius Zox, and goat-devil Skallox were somehow not horrific-looking enough, then Abysmus will surely fulfill any desire for visceral imagery. He is a gruesome being with a bulging spine, exposed bones, and a maw that makes Venom look kissable. But as said before, this type of imagery has become par for the course in this title and does little to inspire anything to rage about. Read Full Review
