Red Lanterns #22 Review

So Atrocitus is believed dead, by the hand of the newest red lantern Guy Gardner.  Guys got the crazy on real hard, the rest of the Red Lanterns are trying to figure out what to do with him.  They dunk him into the mystic blood ocean of Ysmault to get his mind back.  Gardner emerges ginger as ever.  At the his point among the bickering Lanterns Guy decides to teach them about democracy.  The first thing voted on is whether they should have a roof over their heads, like a base of operations. 

    The Red Lanterns locate the flagship of Barg, Thornchief of Starsea (a space pirate) The Lanterns take down all the fighter escort ships and then pair off to take down all sides of the flagship.  Zilius Zox and Guy Gardner team up to head down the center of the ship and the rest of the Lanterns will meet them at the bridge.  Inside Guy, and Zilius blast, and barf all the resistance down, until they come to a storage room.  Inside they find the de-limbed bodies of the Green Lantern Chaselon race.  The pirates just need the crystal ball bodies to crush down and sell as an aphrodisiac. 

    Guy is not happy, not happy at all.  Inside the bridge Barg pleads for his life, and offers everything he can.  Guy rage ahol that he is, blasts the pirate out into space.  The scary part (awesome part) he liked it.  The Lanterns have a new flagship.  Out in deep space Atrocitus is resurrected.  Ut Oh!

    It's a good time to be a Red Lantern fan.  Out of all the Lantern titles, this one has struggled the hardest.  But I can easily see this becomeing one of my favorites as it goes on.  Guy Gardner is at his best, and a team up with the Mad Ball Zilius Zox (Remember Mad Balls?  Man I loved those) is brilliant.  Anyone who decided that they didn't need to read Red Lanterns anymore after the third army and the first lantern will be missing out.  So break out your Red Rings and keep reading, this looks like it's going to be a hell of a good time.
