5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another cosmic-level crisis crossover event; but…, 30 Mar. 2015
The stories running through issues #21-26 of the New 52’s Red Lanterns are collected, along with Green Lantern Annual #2, as Red Lanterns Vol. 4: Blood Brothers (The New 52). This collection begins with Atrocitus, leader of the Red Lanterns, discovering a ‘bug’ planted by the Green Lanterns in one of his Corpsmen. He quickly removes it, with extreme prejudice, just to show the rest of the Corps just what sort of guy he is, and then he announces his plan to rebuild the Red Lanterns, unleashing a number of vacant rings out into the universe to search for new candidates. However, back on Oa, Hal Jordan recruits Guy Gardner to rejoin the Red Lanterns as his man on the inside. I have to note that the character of Guy Gardner in this scene seems to be rather different to how he has been portrayed recently, but it might just be my memory. Anyway, Guy shows up on Ysmault to a cold welcome from Atrocitus, and promptly beats him to a pulp and takes his ring, along with the Corps. Atrocitus’s corpse is hauled away by Dex-starr… The next two issues sees Guy establishing a new direction for the Red Lanterns, while Atrocitus, rescued by Dex-Starr sets out to recover a Red Ring to re-establish himself. The fourth issue is also part four of ‘Lights Out’, the latest cosmic crisis crossover for the various lantern corps, which leads into the finale in Green Lantern Annual #2. The next two issues are an old fashioned space-opera story for Guy and the Corps, though with more blood and corpses than we used to see in the Silver Age. We also follow Atrocitus and Dex-Starr on their quest, which reaches its climax on the final page of the collection.

Despite being involved in yet another cosmic crisis, the Red Lanterns’ story flows neatly, with an astonishing amount of character development interwoven with the entertaining action. This is an excellent new volume, with an excellent creative team, and an excellent new direction for the Red Lantern Corps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent new storyline for the Green Lantern Corps, 30 Mar. 2015
This storyline – collected as Green Lantern Rage Of The Red Lanterns TP (Green Lantern Graphic Novels) – runs through Green Lantern issues #26-28 & #36-38, along with Final Crisis: Rage of the Red Lanterns #1. The first three issues give us the origin of the Alpha Lanterns and introduce us to the Red Lanterns, along with some interaction between the imprisoned Sinestro and Hal Jordan. The second three issues gives us more interaction with Sinestro and introduces the Blue Lanterns, as the Red Lanterns take centre stage and revelations about Sinestro’s past are, err, revealed. Despite being split into two sections, the story flows freely, the art is very good, and the Darkest Night slowly unfolds. This could easily have been a Green Lantern corps volume, but the two series are so intertwined that you have to read both to keep up with events anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last man standing, 30 Mar. 2015
The stories running through issues #27-34 of DC Comics’ “New 52” Red Lanterns title are collected, along with Red Lanterns Annual #1, Green Lantern #28, and Supergirl #31 as Red Lanterns Vol. 5: Atrocities (The New 52), wrongly catalogued on Amazon as “Red Daughter of Krypton”, the title of the crossover Supergirl volume. This is another excellent episode in the adventures of the Red Lantern Corps, in which they get their very own Earth-threatening crisis - why should the Green Lanterns have all the fun and devastation? This also sees the resolution of the struggle between Guy Gardner and Atrocitus for control of the Corps, though that weaves through a couple of storylines and crossovers, and there’s not much left to control by the end - I had to go and check that there would be a sixth volume, just to be sure.

This is an excellently scripted and illustrated collection. The various members of the Red Lanterns get their characters deepened and developed as the story progresses, even Dex-Starr, and Guy Gardner comes to terms with his anger issues. We even discover that it is possible to survive the removal of a red ring.

The stories break down into three ‘sections’, a four parter - #27-29 and Green Lantern #28; a three-parter - #30, #31 and Supergirl #31’ and a concluding four parter - #32-34 and Annual #1.

THE SPOILER ZONE
For a detailed breakdown of the stories collected in this volume, see Red Lanterns Vol. 5: Atrocities (The New 52).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent episode in the current history of the Corps, 30 Mar. 2015
The story running through Green Lantern Corps #33-#39 is collected as Green Lantern Corps Emerald Eclipse TP (Green Lantern Corps (Quality Paper)). It is by-lined as ‘Prelude to Darkest Night’, and the storylines are continued, and some of them resolved, in the Blackest Night volumes for the Green Lantern Corps and Green Lantern (in that order – be warned). In this volume, life takes a serious turn for several of the main characters, as Sinestro reveals himself to his Green Lantern daughter (go on, have a guess) and Mongul II sets up home on Daxam, while on Oa the Sciencell prisoners stage a mass break-out. If you have been following the current Green Lantern Corps stories, than this is a 5-star volume, but you will need the above mentioned Blackest Night volumes to reach the end of the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading if you are following the Blackest Night and Green Lantern Corps’ series, 30 Mar. 2015
This storyline consists of the ‘parallel’ Blackest Night stories running through Green Lantern #43-#52, and is collected as Blackest Night Green Lantern TP (Green Lantern Graphic Novels). Although it is running in parallel to the main storyline, these are actually more interesting than many of the other Green Lantern Corps and Blackest Night related issues, as there is more ‘personal stuff’ on display, and not just Hal Jordan, as both Jon Stewart and Sinestro get some front-of-page time; and Mongul’s storyline from the Green Lantern Corps also gets a serious resolution. I rate this as more interesting than the main big-battle series, but, unfortunately, it is all part of the same seamless storyline, and needs to be read in conjunction with the Blackest Night and Green Lantern Corps volumes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Secrets and Lies, 30 Mar. 2015
The story running through the ‘New 52’ Green Lantern issues #1-6 – collected as Green Lantern Volume 1: Sinestro TP - continue straight on from the pre-New 52 storyline, where Hal Jordan has been sacked from the Corps and Sinestro has been given his ring. Neither is happy at this turn of events, but Sinestro goes off to ‘protect’ his sector of space, and free his homeworld of Korugar, currently dominated by the remnants of the Sinestro Corps, while Hal Jordan invites Carol Ferris out on a date. Neither activity goes well.

Sinestro comes to Earth to recruit Hal Jordan to yet another Sinestro Corps, this time a Green Lantern-powered one, as Sinestro demonstrates why he is the greatest Green Lantern, by creating a new power ring for Hal Jordan, showing him the proper way to rescue a collapsing bridge, and revealing hitherto unknown powers belonging to the ring. Then off to Korugar to clean up Dodge City… while the Guardians are busy mind-wiping Ganthet, the Guardian with a conscience, and are plotting yet again…

There is plenty of full-speed action, but with enough character-building scenes to balance the intersecting stories - there’s never a dull moment in the Corps, whatever colour it happens to be this month.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another big budget running around, fighting and conspiring blockbuster, for those that like that sort of thing, 30 Mar. 2015
The story running through issues #1-7 of the New 52’s Green Lantern – New Guardians is collected as Green Lantern New Guardians Volume 1: The Ring Bearer TP (The New 52). The story starts off rather disconcertingly, as Ganthet rises from a mound of dead Guardians, in the ruins of Oa, surrounded by the bodies of the Green Lantern Corps; after which he appears on Earth to Kyle Rayner to present him with the last power ring of the Green Lantern Corps. “I have missed a volume somewhere”, I though to myself as I read the above, “I thought Kyle was already in the New 52 continuity”. Fortunately, as it turned out, this was only a flashback, and the real story begins in the present day, as power rings from the various other Corps start abandoning their owners, usually in embarrassing situations, and go to meet their new master in Sector 2814. This has fatal consequences for the Yellow and Red Lanterns involved, but fortunately help was at hand for the other colours. The truant rings all pop up around Kyle Rayner, closely followed by representatives from their respective Corps demanding their return, leading to the first big fight. Kyle and Saint Walker head off to Oa to ask the Guardians what is happening, only to find Ganthet has been ‘lobotomised’ by the other Guardians – see Green Lantern Volume 1: Sinestro TP for the details. The Guardians are extremely angry, especially for beings supposedly above emotion, about Kyle having all these rings in his possession, and start a fight, which is quickly joined by the pursuing representatives of the other Corps. During this, we discover that the Orange ring was actually a construct of Larfleeze, and that he is actually behind everything. He has assembled the group of multi-coloured Lanterns because a threat has appeared out of the black hole at the centre of the galaxy, and Larfleeze needed someone to save him from it, as he was responsible for its creation many millennia before (the threat, not the black hole). Anyway, more big fights and widescreen action follow, and somewhere along the way, in a scene so memorable that I have completely forgotten where it happened, this group of Lanterns appear to have formed a new group – the New Guardians.

In terms of artwork, this is a spectacularly visual adventure - whether in close-ups or in ginormous spectacles, the art is magnificent. The scripting is also excellent. The plot however, is OK, but everyone seems to be swept up in the moment, and no-one is stopping to say “hold on a minute, why don’t we all sit down and talk this through”. There is no thinking outside the box here, it is just ‘another’ cosmic threat for the Corps’ to eventually face down – though not in this volume…
