Reaction to the physical manifestations of Red Lanterning is still a mixed barf bag of awkward acceptance and chuckles in these parts, but of all the cosmic corps, their emotional power source is probably the easiest to relate to. You guys use the Internet, you can dig it. With that in mind, The Source's announcement that Peter Milligan will pen the ongoing Red Lantern series this year feels like a logical expansion of the Green Lantern stable of books.Here's what Milligan says readers can expect in the book's opening arc:

"In the first storyline of RED LANTERNS 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 DEX-STARR try to feed its beloved master? And what horrors lie at the bed of the ocean of blood?"

DC has yet to reveal the series' artist (or artists), but it's good to know whoever takes on the title will be drawing Dex-Starr.
