    All-Comic - Watsonian Jul 3, 2014

    This book was greatly anticipated by many, and not just because of the titular character. The creative team excited many as well. Yes, issues #1 and #2 were good, but this issue excels. The characterization is pushing characters that have been around for years to new levels, all while setting up some truly epic antagonists that add depth to the already deep Green Lantern mythology. This book is visual storytelling running on full power. The splendor, vanity, and tragedy of Sinestro are wonderfully delivered, with more of each to come. The anticipation and speculation for future issues is rising. Read Full Review

    Sinestro #3 is a solid issue from a series tha'st slowly improving over time with each passing issue. The writing is getting better, the drama and conflict are well done, and the artwork is rather impressive. The comic could still use a little work but I'm really starting to get into the storyline and I'm looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Sinestro has some of the best artwork that DC Comics is offering up in the New 52, and put Dale Eaglesham's art with the voice that Cullen Bunn gives Sinestro and you have yourself a home run of a series.  Plus we get a added bonus of Rags Morales putting his awesome hand in this story as well, so what's there to bitch about?  I've truly enjoyed every panel of this series, and find myself getting jittery waiting for the next issue to come out.  We've also got a great foe in the form of a emotion hating cult that seems to be a great foil for the force of fear that Sinestro is, so make sure that you pick up this book and the rest of the series.  It's a awesome read.

    DC Comics News - Max Eber Jun 26, 2014

    POSITIVESI actually really liked the pacing here; this issue is not very action heavy; consisting of mostly confrontations and conversations; particularly a big long one between Sinestro and Green Lantern Soranik, Sinestro's long lost daughter who is sort of but not really but pretty much prisoner or designated liaison. While it's sort of groan inducing that the green lantern that is accompanying them is his daughter because “family must stick together or you owe them” sort of nonsense but this does indeed make for some interesting writing; their relationship is complicated and that shows very nicely without bowing to most conventions to make it so.

    Geeked Out Nation - CJ Yudelson Jun 28, 2014

    The comic ends with a really cool confrontation on the planet Muz. A slave auction is interrupted as Sinestro and several other yellow lanterns as well as his daughter Soranik march in and Sinestro orders them to release the chained Korugarians. Violence ensues, because hey, this is Sinestro were dealing with. The comic ends with a nice surprise which gave a good wrap up and weight to the beginning of the issue. Sinestro #3 was another really solid issue which fans will enjoy. The creative team is hitting its stride and I am looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Jun 28, 2014

    Sinestro #3 continues to re-define Sinestro in the post-Johns era and while the pacing of the series may be a little slower than some readers would like I'm not disappointed at all with Cullen Bunn's decision to build things up at a simmer.  This series feels like there's a considerable amount of drama and weight to it, something which complements the lead character very well.  This issue positions Sinestro for a challenge he's not ready for with allies who don't exactly have a great deal of faith in him.  Hard times are ahead and issue three does a great job of whetting our appetite for what's to follow.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Infinite Comix - Joey Ulfsrud Jun 30, 2014

    Sinestro #3 doesn't quite have the punch of its predecessors, but it is an entertaining issue nonetheless. The art stands tall, the writing stands tall, but the comic falls short when it comes to the overarching story actually moving forward. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter Jul 2, 2014

    This issue felt more like a comic and less like some bizarre science fiction history lesson, and that is a step in the right direction for the series. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 26, 2014

    On art, Dale Eaglesham and Rags Morales split duties, the former's steely intensity combining with the latter's softer touch, resulting in some epic ring-slinging and great character beats. Read Full Review

    The character dynamics are fun, and our protagonist is, as always, a compelling figure, but there's nothing terribly surprising in the issue. Read Full Review

    So far so good, just not great. While Lyssa helped provide motivation at the start of this arc she seems to have fallen into the background and that's a shame. This issue drives home that the way Sinestro sees himself varies greatly from the way he's viewed by everyone else he's had any contact with. Despite Eaglesham only doing half the art it didn't suffer.
