Written by Peter Milligan, Art & Cover by Ed Benes and Rob Hunter
Solicitation Info (from Previews): Atrocitus and his Red Lantern Corps return in their own series, battling against injustice in the most bloody ways imaginable!
Bias: As I said under Green Lantern, I’m not a big Green Lantern fan, and the Rainbow Lanterns just seemed silly to me. Maybe the most violent, bloody Lantern set can change my mind, but I’m just not feeling the love for this one. Not prior to reading the first issue, anyway.
What I liked: It was a good introduction to the Red Lanterns (especially since I knew next to nothing about them).
What I disliked: While the comic did a good job of introducing the characters, it didn’t give me any reason to care about them or what they’re doing.
Verdict: Dropping this title.
As always, SPOILERS in comments, including my favorite scene, thoughts on what happened, and questions about what’s to come.
