Red Lanterns #6

Let this story be a cautionary tale: This is what happens when you bottle your anger.  Earth has a new Red Lantern, and we spent the past six months watching his rise; "All Too Human" by Peter Milligan takes readers into Jack Moore's head as he is consumed by the red, but immediately we see there is something different about him; something that will place him in direct conflict with Atrocitus, who at the same time seems to be going through the opposite experience: is his rage subsiding?  The shared art duties in this issue are almost seamless, especially in its digital version; however, there are places where the inks are too thick and make the panels look awkward, at least in print.  Undoubtedly, the best moment in the story is the cliffhanger, where Rankorr comes face to face with someone who understands all too well what he is going through.  With lots of characterization, and closing on a high note, this issue is a winner.
