The origin of Atrocitus was hinted at way back in issue #1 with a glimpse of his family’s death on his home planet as a massacre played out and here in issue #0 we get the chance to find out much more on this.

I have seen it heralded as the Ultimate-Comic-Book-Fan-Fear, where a favourite book is cancelled or treasured personnel shifted around to work on other titles. I’ve also seen it heralded as the Ultimate-Comic-Book-Company-Marketing-Tactic and in light of recent high profile cancellations from Marvel (Generation Hope, Daken etc) I think DC fans got off lightly by comparison. This somewhat sweeping statement makes reference to DC’s recent switching around of writers on JLDark, Stormwatch and Frankenstein, which was so unexpected we had to get in touch with Lemire, Milligan and Janin to ascertain exactly had had gone on and what we could expect from the changes.

Responsible for some of the most critically acclaimed and original comics of the 90s, as well as the radical revamping of Ditko’s SHADE, The Changing Man, Peter Milligan is now spearheading the DC Comics DCthenew52 Relaunch at the helm of both Justice League Dark and Red Lanterns. We caught up with Milligan at this year’s Thought Bubble festival in Leeds, affording him a well earned break from signing favourite issues and trades for a steady stream of fans.

Red Lanterns #1 was the strongest of the Lanterns titles from month one in my opinion and the month two Lantern releases couldn’t come round quick enough….but could this title build on a strong start?……you’d say by the cover alone it’s going to have a damn good try.

Justice League Dark #1 was despite being the book I was most looking forward to reading therefore likely to be jinxed and awful, my definite top book of the DC Reboot. I was dreading and looking forward to Wednesday this week in equal measure, just in case the success of issue 1 was a fluke and I’d be left with another tepid title I’d foolishly pre-ordered.
