    3.5 stars Once again, I didn't think I would enjoy a book about the Red Lanterns as much as I did. It's mostly a slug-fest between the Reds and anyone who crosses their path, but the addition of the new Red Lantern (who still has some of his humanity) helped to keep things fresh. Also, the crossover with Stormwatch was pretty cool. The story goes like this: The Red power battery has been poisoned, and all of the Reds are dying. Rage!

    To lazy to do a big review. Basically Red Lanterns screaming at each other and trying to kill each other. The Human is the only kind of smart one, trying to settle everything down. One cool thing was Stormwatch coming in, loved them here. The rest? Forgettable. A 2.5 out of 5.

    Great! So after a few years since I read Volume 1, I finally got vol 2; and I'm kicking myself for not getting it sooner! So the story is that, the Red Lantern Power Battery has been poisoned(How I won't say because I don't wanna spoil), and its up to Atrocitus, and his lanterns to stop it! This was all around good from start to finish; however their was mini crossover with Stormwatch, if anyone remembers that series; apart from seeing Midnighter; their a pretty boring bunch!

The Artwork also changed from Vol 1; they are very similar, but I think I like vol 1's art slightly more! Also I'm not sure what value, Jack Moore(Human Red Lantern) adds to the table; Atrocitus is awesome, Bleez is a badass; that giant head Lantern provides comic relief; but Jack Moore does not add any value, he just flies around confused about who he is, why is he a red lantern... I may have pointed out a lot of flaws, but their minor; this is a really great series!

    Little weaker than volume 1. Ostensibly, this volume was about solving the problem of the Red Lanterns' central power battery, which was somehow rotting with disease.

Ostensibly, this volume was about solving the problem of the Red Lanterns' central power battery, which was somehow rotting with disease. Because the central power battery was broken, and all Red Lanterns were cosmically tied to it, huge swathes of --nameless-- Red Lanterns were sickening and dying. Biggest writing faux pas? Atrocitus, the founder and leader of the Red Lanterns, apparently created a being called "Abysmus," and promptly buried him because he had too much compassion and not enough rage. The exact circumstances of this creation and burial did not happen on-panel, so the reader has to accept these events at face value based on statements Atrocitus makes. Obviously, because it's comic books, this being turned out not to be dead and came back as a villain. This being sometimes referred to Atrocitus as "Father," but the status of their relationship as parent and child has not really been explored. Since the whole reason Atrocitus founded the Red Lanterns is because of his rage over the murder of his wife and children, you would think the idea of Atrocitus having new children would be a juicy bit of story to explore. ... It doesn't get explored in this volume. Clearly the artist changed toward the end of this volume, and whoever the new artist was wasn't as good. Characters' motivations also weren't explained super well, or were downright nonsensical. Bleez decided to blame the Star Sapphires for the Red Power Battery's dysfunction, just... arbitrarily. There was no logic behind it. Then the Star Sapphires volunteered to convert female Red Lanterns, and I'm confused as to why the violet power of love is limited just to women. Especially given how this story takes place in outer space, featuring dozens of different alien species, many of which may not HAVE females, as we understand them on Earth. What if a species requires 5 genders to produce an egg, and another 3 to hatch it? Which of those beings would qualify for membership with the Star Sapphires? Also, I meant to say this before, but I'll say it now-- almost every single scene with Bleez prominently features her ass. She holds her body awkwardly just so that the audience gets a nice look at her ass, as she twists around so that sometimes we can also see her face. This also begs the question why a rape victim filled with rage at her ill treatment (and rightly so) continues to prance about in a type of thong, with most of her bare ass cheeks hanging out, in the vacuum of space. You would think she would want to wear a full pair of pants. Probably with spikes. Or at least that's what I would do.

    The Red Lanterns are forced to stick together and save their corps before time runs out. At this point there are three very interesting Red Lanterns, Atrocitus, Bleez and of course the human, Rankorr. We mainly follow these great characters as they each go on different 'missions' to save their corps. Atrocitus and Bleez are as badass as ever while rankorr is still lost as to who he is, even what he is. Great story and well executed.

    A good ending to Abysmus’ stroy arc, art took a downgrade after artist change in my opinion, a lot of the story felt like boring filler but stormwatch being a part of the arc was pretty cool.

    This book reads like a bunch of cave people grunting at each other, fighting over the last leg of roast beast.. A really shallow storyline using characters with no depth to them. A total throw-away volume. Not sure if I will continue reading this series. 2/5

Infected by Atrocitus’s first creation Abysmus, the Corps are working on borrowed time, and they must find the cause quickly. Atrocitus sets off to locate Abysmus while Bleez and her rebels seek the Star Sapphires. As Stormwatch takes an interest in the Red Lanterns, Jack Moore finds himself caught between his humanity and curse of being a Red Lantern. Written by Peter Milligan, Red Lanterns Volume 2: Death of the Red Lanterns is part of the New 52 relaunch of the DC Universe following Flashpoint. Following Red Lanterns Volume 1: Blood and Rage, the collection features art by Miguel Sepulveda, Andres Guinaldo, Jorge Jimenez, Mark Irwin, and Tomas Giorello. The collection features a crossover with Stormwatch, and Stormwatch (3) #9 and Red Lanterns #10 were also collected in Stormwatch Volume 2: Enemies of Earth. The New 52 relaunch of DC was a fun way to spice up the DC Comics. Red Lanterns was one of the surprise titles and putting Milligan on it was a different choice. With winning titles like X-Force/X-Statix, Milligan has potential to soar…Red Lanterns finds a middle ground. Milligan takes a bit too many jumps in the storytelling. The Abysmus backstory is a bit too loosely told and the Bleez encounters with the Star Sapphires also takes odd leaps that leaves you questioning if you missed a page. He’s done a bit of this in the past in titles like Shade, but I wish that the series flowed better here. It is unfortunately because there is some gold in Red Lanterns. I actually kind of like Milligan is giving the rather one-dimensional Red Lanterns more depth. Villains as leads are always compelling, and Red Lanterns are even more villainous than most comics that attempt it…plus, Dex-Starr is gold. The crossover with Stormwatch feels logical (Milligan was writing both titles, and Stormwatch are essentially police men), but the execution also wasn’t great. While the Stormwatch part works, the Red Lanterns issue seems forced in the bigger story which is occurring in Red Lanterns. Atrocitus vows revenge which promises a payoff later on…but I don’t know if we’ll get it. Red Lanterns has a lot of potential, but it feels largely untapped. I wish Milligan went all in on Red Lanterns like he did on X-Statix, but it feels like he was limited by DC’s mainstreaming of the book. If we had had something completely crazy and unusual in Red Lanterns, it would have really stood out among the New 52 books…even if it didn’t fit in perfectly. Red Lanterns 2: Death of the Red Lanterns is followed by Red Lanterns 3: The Second Prophecy.

The powerful Red Lantern Abysmus, creation of the leader of the Red Lanterns Corp Atrocitus, has been freed and on a mission to destroy all life, and the Red Lanterns by poising their battery. Atrocitus must stop this genocide, but also fight a civil war his right hand, Bleez, has declared. As I stated in my thoughts on Blood and Rage (vol. 1), I was pleasantly surprised by this run since I’m not a Green Lantern fan in his standalone stories. Once again, however, I was pleasantly surprised reading the continuation in Red Lanterns, Vol. 2: The Death of the Red Lanterns by Peter Milligan (art by Miguel Sepúlveda and Ed Benes). The first volume introduced some great characters (Rankorr who is still half human, and Bleez which is certainly poised to become the breakout character), and this volume expands on them as they each go on different paths. The art is very cinematic, the book looks great and very dynamic. The story was somewhat intricate and I had to read several panels a few times, or go back for stuff I missed, but the art really drives this volume. The weakest part, in my opinion, was the Stormwatch crossover. While it works, I didn’t think it was executed as well as it could have been and seemed forced while attached to this volume. This book has a lot of fighting in it, it’s a punch fest from start to finish. I really enjoyed these books so far, and looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

    This series just doesn't have the same heart that the other Lantern books do. There is no one to root for or against. Its just a bunch of hate. I could see how this could be interesting in small doses but an entire series seems pointless. The inclusion of Stormwatch to the book for no other reason that the same author works on both books seems obvious. The art, by a handful of artists was really good though. Overall, the book has no soul or purpose but has some decent scenes and good line work. This series just doesn't have the same heart that the other Lantern books do.

    "Red Lanterns Fight Among Themselves: Book Two" They're still too busy fighting each other, much like the last book. It got to be pretty pathetic. Near the end of the volume, the entire story arc shifts, as does the art and motivations for characters. It would be a welcomed change, except it feels too late and so out of place with everything that happened prior. Batman being teased at one point can't save it. I find the Red Lanterns very fascinating as a concept. As book, I don't. Series dropped.

    It was okay but still fairly pointless. Point, that's the biggest enemy that this series faces, it's point. With their mission accomplished the last arc tried to answer that question and somewhat but not really answered it, with this second arc this creative team hopes to build on that wobbly foundation. World: The art is fine, you don't notice it and you don't hate it. There are certain issues that are better than the others but it's mainly a coloring thing.

The world building is wonky at best, it's trying to expand the world of the Red Lanterns, but given that the notion of the Reds are already wonky building outwards does it not favors. It's there but you don't really care. Story: Still trying to find point, but not really succeeding, this is because the reader needs to buy into the premise of their existence, mainly Atrocitus. Endless rage and vengeance does not sustain a good story and when it's over there's nothing left to tell. I think it's time to let the other Reds to shine and have their story told and their vengeance be the main force. But still, it's an issue. Readers, at least me, want to read heroes saving people bit so much avenging people. The Abysmus story was stupid and pointless which is why I won't go into it, except how did he get off planet? The story needs a point and I'm running out of patience. Characters: Atrocitus is boring, his arc over, let's do something else. This section is just as weak as the story cause there are no characters to lead this book. Bleez is eye candy without substance and Moore is just...zzz This book needs a point. Onward to the next book!

    Everything I liked about the first one is here, but with more violence and a solid story arc. The feud between Atrocitus, Bleez and the other Red Lanterns is still going on when the Red Power Battery is suddenly poisoned and killing Red Lanterns. While they continue to hate each other, they try to solve the mystery of who did it and how to stop it. The human lantern annoyed me less in this volume, because they just let him go full into his new rage duties.

The human lantern annoyed me less in this volume, because they just let him go full into his new rage duties. I liked his monologues and his conflicts with what the red lantern's required of him. It reminded me of Atrocitus' monologues in the last volume, except not as good. As the schism that started in the last volume spills into this one, we see the Red Lanterns slowly begin to get comfortable again. I skimmed the reviews and saw a lot of complaints about that, but come on these people are all rage incarnate. If they quickly made up, it would make no sense. They have to be angry and unreasonable, and what makes this series stand out for me is their twisted perception of existence and their place in it. The best example of that here is when Atrocitus fights Abysmus, and they talk it out (as characters do in these things) touching on interesting thoughts about revenge, justice and violence. I mean, I could be looking too far into it, but that was some impressive sentence making for a comic book. The only thing I didn't like was the crossover, even though I did like seeing Martian Manhunter for a hot minute. Otherwise, this Green Lantern spin off may actually be worthy of existing. Unlike, say, all the others.

    The book sets itself up as a five-issue long quest after the firstborn trying to destroy the Red Lanterns. Unfortunately, it frequently loses its focus and meanders all over the place in the process. That starts with the first two issues (8-9), where the interesting politics & characters of the first volume have descended into the endless mayhem that I feared when I started reading this comic, with the only bright spot being the new human Red Lantern who isn't quite right [5+/10].

Things feel like they get entirely derailed as part of the Stormwatch crossover (10), which I liked better when I read it as part of Stormwatch. Unfortunately, from the view of the Red Lanterns, it's a big snipe hunt intended solely to make you-and-him fight, because it has nothing to do with the main Red Lantern plot arc [6/10]. Things only begin to cohere in the last two issues, which finally address the main arc and have some nice scenes of Red Lanterns across the universe [7/10], but it's too little too late to save the volume as a whole.

    Unfortunately, Red Lanterns abandons it's character driven road for a more common treachery plot. The clumsiness of the writing becomes more apparent, as the narrative staggers towards an obvious and drawn out conclusion, including an uninspired and confusing crossover with Stormwatch.

Bleez gets a standout moment, and Zilius Zox is becoming a fun note in the title, but Atrocitus is wearing thin, and is substantially less dynamic than those surrounding him. Still though, the book gets points for being interesting, having Guy Gardner screentime, and for its incredible artwork. It's a joy to look at, and at least its never boring.

    Very good. Another story continuing the Red Lanterns situation after Atrocitus attempts to give purpose to the rest of his Corps. However there is a new problem. His Corps is dying out with the Central Lantern being drained from some unknown source. He must do what he can to save his Corps. All this while many of his Corps are rediscovering their individuality. Bleez is an amazing character who I can't help but feel pity for. Zilius Zox is kind of a funny fellow, while the newest Lantern Jack Moor Very good.

    Better than volume 1, but still suffering from the same problems. Maybe it's because this is actually just a continuation of the same story arc, but I was hoping for more character development with Jack Moore, the Red Lantern from Earth. I won't go into spoilers, but the conclusion was rushed, even though it gives me hope that the Red Lanterns will go back to being the way that Geoff Johns' initially wrote them: Full of Rage.

    The artwork is very well drawn and rather evil, but that is really the best part. The story is a vicious, repetitious hunt for Abysmus by all of the surviving Red Lanterns. There is really only so much a reader should be expected to take of this never ending search. This definitely feels like a filler issue before a greater story emerges. I am going to stick with this title because the artwork is really amazing and hope that the story gets moving in a better direction.

    Overall okay. Feels like the story concludes too quickly. Very intrested to see where this human Red Lantern goes...especially since Guy Gardner seems intrested in him. Bleeze is an intresting female characther in the New 52...other writers should take not of how she is handled with a strong personality and not completly naked...I mean scantily clad.
