DC's line of Green Lantern titles are continuing to grow, with Red Lanterns getting their own ongoing series, the publisher announced Monday. The comic will join monthly titles Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps and Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors.

Writing the series is Peter Milligan, best-known for work on Vertigo titles such as Shade the Changing Man and Hellblazer, plus Marvel's X-Statix and that company's upcoming 5 Ronin. In 2007, he wrote the DC Universe-set series Infinity Inc., which lasted 12 issues.

The Red Lantern Corps, introduced by writer Geoff Johns in 2007's Green Lantern #25, are led by Atrocitus (and include among their ranks the feline Dex-Starr), and are powered by the emotion of rage. No artist has been announced for the series yet, nor a release date beyond "2011." Comments from Milligan on the series can be found on The Source, DC's official blog.

Not sure what I think - I'll have to mull this over for a bit.

I think it it is time for me to jump ship on the Lanterns.

Got a "DC guy" in my new book club, so I will still read them, and it sucks because I really want to support DC's $2.99, but with Superpooper coming back to Action with issue #600 and this Red Lantern bull crap, I think it is a good time to drop 4 DC titles.

Sucks because all the Marvel/Crossgen news had me missing and loving Bedards Lantern book.

Still get to read it though and I will probably stay on for another month ... to give my DC guy time ...  Grin

Well of course it is. Look who is writing it. My boy Bedard from Negation fame.
You are also reading REBELS, right? (and yes, I refuse to use "." after each letter  Grin)
