    Nine issues in and now the characters have a goal and Rankorr keeps getting more and more interesting. A great read. Read Full Review

    Peter Milligan's writing still suffers from the same problems -- overdone dialogue, poor pacing, and awkward transitions -- but such is the relief that the story now has a clear focus that it all does not seem so bad. Rankorr continues to be a flat character, but his insight into what it's like to be a Red Lantern gives him a purpose for being around. With several characters now in their right mind, Atrocitus now has a stronger supporting cast. Zilius Zox even offers up a logical solution to the poisoned power battery, but it falls on deaf ears. I'm not even sure if Atrocitus has ears. Read Full Review

    Red Lanterns number nine to me is the last page of the first chapter in the story of the Red Lanterns story.  With this issue we can put behind or outright dismiss many of the unresolved subplots from the past and simply move forward with the strengths of the Red Lantern concept.  I'm ready to put these past nine issues behind me and start anew with the series and I find myself looking forward to what I hope is a more focused direction for a book that I've had a hard time rallying behind.  That said, issue nine is an average book with some interesting developments counterbalanced by a downplayed moment that should have been a high point that the series was building towards.  Three out of five lanterns.

    In a time when I want to be as careful as ever about what I want to spend money and time reading, Red Lanterns has fallen over the cliff and I believe it's time to move on. Read Full Review
