The Appeal of Sinestro

Further breaking the mold (and taking a day off from the Appeals blogging), here is another reblog throwback to one of my other pieces at Sourcerer: a character description post about Sinestro from 2015.

Review: Sinestro #2 (Spoilers!)

My review of Sinestro #2 over at Sourcerer. More is forthcoming.

Sourcerer

Hello, everyone! Today I’ll review Cullen Bunn and Dale Eaglesham’s Sinestro #2. This contains some spoilers, so be forewarned.

Sinsestro2

Continuing from the conflicts set up in the first issue, Sinestro spends a lot of his time this month reasserting his control over the lantern corps he founded. With the Sinestro Corps under Arkillo‘s control, it has grown, but not in a way Sinestro sees as being worthy of his ideals. As Sinestro states, he created his army to establish order and pursue justice across the universe using methods the Green Lanterns’ Guardians had no stomach for—namely, fear. Arkillo’s recruitment of untrustworthy criminals into the fold does nothing for this mission, leaving the Sinestro Corps a bloated force of bullies and murderers in need of guidance. Much as he has in the past, Sinestro demonstrates that the yellow rings he created for his corps will ultimately answer to him over…

Will Cullen Bunn’s Sinestro Fly?

My first mention of Cullen Bunn and Dale Eaglesham’s Sinestro series, reviews of which I hope to make a staple at Sourcerer much like my Batman column.

DC announced last night that Sinestro will get his own series in April.

Now, I admit I haven’t read Cullen Bunn‘s The Sixth Gun, which I’m told is genius and certainly his best work, but his track record on non-creator-owned properties has been pretty lackluster. I have read some of his work on Captain America after Ed Brubaker‘s departure and found it wanting. His work may simply not be my cup of tea, but I have heard other people complain that his presence on a title while at Marvel was often that title’s kiss of death.

All of that aside, I may yet check out this new Sinestro series, and…

Sinestro #1. Finally. With Minor Spoilers.

My recent review of DC’s Sinestro #!.

SINESTRO_Cv1Unletteredby Jeremy DeFatta

Good day, everyone! Here at last is my review of Cullen Bunn and Dale Eaglesham’sSinestro #1. I will try and keep things general where appropriate, but be forewarned. This review contains spoilers, but hopefully nothing that will ruin the story for potential readers. I hope to go more in-depth with reviews of future issues. Issue #2 is out this week, so look for a review of it soon. I promise it will come out more quickly than this one did. Anyway, let’s dive in.

The issue opens with Thaal Sinestro in self-imposed exile on some miscellaneous alien world with creatures that look like 12-legged sabretooth tigers. He no longer appears to be bound to the Parallax entity, which might be explained in Forever Evil #7, also out this week. Lyssa Drak, keeper of the Book of Parallax, appears to Sinestro and pleads with him to…
