DC Announces Red Lanterns Ongoing by Peter Milligan


DC Comics have announced that the Red Lantern Corps. made famous in Green Lantern, Blackest Night, and Brightest Day, are about to get their own ongoing monthly series!

The title, to be named Red Lanterns, will be written by Peter Milligan, and will hit shelves sometime in 2011.

Here’s what Milligan had to say about the book:

“Everybody who has read Green Lantern and its associated books for any time probably knows why Atrocitus is angry. His entire race was almost wiped out by marauding Manhunters.

“But after Geoff Johns asked if I was interested in writing The Red Lantern Corps I started thinking about Atrocitus and his anger. Because it’s not just anger. It is RAGE. A crimson red rage that still consumes him after all this time. And when you think about it, the Manhunter massacre happened an awful long time ago. Eons ago. Okay, you’d never get over something like that. But Atrocitus’ rageŠit hasn’t weakened. It is just as immense and awesome as it was all those centuries ago. I wanted to know why. I wanted to know how.

“In the first storyline of THE RED LANTERN CORPS we look for an answer to these questions. And the answer lies in part on the far side of the prison planet Ysmault. It is here where we’ll see why and how the rage of Atrocitus is just as all-consuming as it ever was. We’ll also begin to learn what goes on in the boiling brains of his napalm-blooded corps. Can the proud Bleeze remain a loyal servant? How does the angry cat DEXTAR try to feed its beloved master? And what horrors lie at the bed of the ocean of blood?”
