Enter the Red Lanterns to the Fray,
This review is from: Green Lantern: Rage of the Red Lanterns (Paperback)Firstly I wish to start by saying that this is very well drawn, just like all current Green Lantern titles currently in circulation at the moment, and the colouring makes it really stand out.
However I wish to state why I have only given this three out of five stars. I only give five out of five reviews for stories that really warrant it; stories like Green Lantern: Rebirth and Sinestro Corps War, those two will truly be remembered. Rage of the Red Lanterns is clearly not in their league, not because it is poor but because those two set the bar so much higher than the usual standard. And by no fault of its own but in my opinion it just fails to meet those expectations set previously.
Rage of the Red Lanterns just feels, in a way, very similar to the Green Lantern: Agent Orange story arc, we are merely being introduced to a new corps and nothing groundbreaking is shown to us, nor do we learn anything that is essential for the future. So as a result while this is a good stand alone story and definitely worth a look it just isn't imperative.
