    I really liked it, as the ending knocked it out of the park for me. Starts a little slow, but the flashback picks things up and that ending–Wow! Even if you've never read a Sinestro comic before, you could completely enjoy this. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Sep 29, 2014

    Igor Lima is the penciller on this issue, with Ruy Jose on inks, Jason Wright on colours, Dave Sharpe on letters and Kevin Nowlan on the excellent cover. I liked the art in this issue, largely because of how awesome and kickass Sinestro looks here, but also because the artists get to have fun with a good amount of members of the Sinestro Corps and seeing them all together like this was a great high. And the character designs, especially when the action takes place on the prison world, are really good too, with lots of fine details and a great amount of diversity between the characters.

    That passage alone speaks volumes as to the character Sinestro has become. As it stands on its own, Futures End Sinestro is amazing. How it fits into the entire Futures End story line I cannot say now, but it is an enjoyable read if you are a fan of the Lantern universe. For the uninitiated, this is a great introduction to Sinestro and gives you some real insight into one of DC's most interesting villains. How ruthless and unrelenting he is and that he does often walk a very thin line between good and evil. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Sep 25, 2014

    In reading this issue, it starts off the same as a lot of others. For instance, as compared to the Teen Titans version of Futures End, little seems to be different on the surface. In the Teen Titans version, a story was told with some new characters and some old, but which did not really change much in terms of the DC Universe, other than introducing a new villain. While this series might start like that, it builds well over its final pages and its ending is really worth reading, especially for those that are fans of Geoff Johns run on Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps.

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Sep 25, 2014

    Sinestro: Futures End #1 successfully uses what is essentially a throw away issue to introduce readers to new characters that have more potential of actually being a part of the Sinesto's future than anything else in the issue.  While clearly putting the rest of his Corps in the background Cullen Bunn succeeds in creating a potential future for the lead character which represents both his brightest day and his own blackest night.  Four out of five lanterns.

    DC Comics News - Max Eber Sep 26, 2014

    I liked it. It's extra, like most of these, and a bit troubling, but it's nowhere near as horrific as other Future's End issues where everything is literally awful just to be awful. It could have been way worse and I'm glad they decided not to. Pick it up. This is a good shades of grey book. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Eric Tillirson Sep 20, 2014

    It starts with a pretty decent issue of seemingly obvious developments, and then takes them to a place so screamingly crazy that you really hope there's a bite to go with the ending's bark. Read this for the ending. It's the best, craziest part. Read Full Review

    Given the narrative currently unfolding in the pages of the book's ongoing, Sinestro's Futures End tale proves to be somewhat of a missed opportunity. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 25, 2014

    While not the happy ending that Guy Gardner received, I dug the direction that Sinestro was taken Five Years From Now.  The only problem I have with the issue is with the way Sinestro was able to manipulate the emotional spectrum.  It really seemed to be a bit wishy washy with it's explanation and lack thereof.  But all in all if you can get past that, it's a really cool story and takes the character into a new interesting direction, even if we'll never see it again.  Go check out Sinestro and complete your foray into the Lanterns Futures End.

    I love Cullen (Magneto) Bunn's series, but it's issues like this that make some of the earlier ones hard to read. Read Full Review
