Sinestro and Hal Jordan have a score to settle but they wont get a chance before the deadly cult of anti-emotion, The Paling, attacks! Plus, the answer to the question everyones been asking: Where is Parallax?

    I havent even mentioned one of my biggest previous gripes with this series that this issue handles quickly and effectively (its a spoiler, so I wont get into it), adding to its list of accomplishments. I was a fan of the title previously, but this issue elevates it in so many ways and so effectively that Id say its on the track to being a must-read. Villain books arent easy to pull off, Bunn just makes it look that way. Read Full Review

    A turning point for Sinestro, who's now been redefined. Must reading for Lantern,anti-hero, villain, DC, or comics fans. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 1, 2014

    While some might not like that most of the issue is Hal Jordan and Sinestro simply talking things out and measuring dick size, it was a really good change of pace and answered questions we've had since Green Lantern #20.  It was just another really good issue and as always the artwork was beyond top notch, so if you're still not reading this book, you better be blind because I don't really see any other excuse.  Go check it out.

    I think this is a solid title, not groundbreaking and not flashy, but still rather solid. It's better than average. The art is solid and artful. But its nice. It's a lot nicer than say, Brett Booth when it comes to drawing people (or aliens…or aliens that are basically people with different colored skin and ears oop). It's a bit dialogue heavy so it requires some thinking too. I generally have little to talk about given the pacing is moderate and thus not much actually occurs rather than Sinestro demonstrating his ability to control Parallax (for the time being, never trust Parallax) like a Pokemon that comes from his chest. It's shocking, but that's the extent of the action. If you can handle something a bit less “black and white” when it comes to morality and enjoys conflicted personalities such as Sinestro, then really do check this book out. Soranik is an amazing character and anywhere she shows up you should support it so please do! Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Aug 28, 2014

    While not as intense overall as preceding installments, Sinestro #5 was another terrific part of this relatively new series. The creative team continues to make this an interesting read that feels both familiar and unique, and the latest issue includes a couple of great plot developments. It remains to be seen exactly where this one could go, but things are looking good so far. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Gabe Carrasco Sep 2, 2014

    Bringing out Sinestro's primary villain (which is already a weird concept) on the 5th issue of the series was a bold move, but this issue answered a LOT of questions, and really pushed this series into the forefront of the Lantern books. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Sep 1, 2014

    Sinestro #5 is fantastic issue in terms of Cullen Bunn's insightful dialogue and unexpected revelation about Parallax's current state.  Unfortunately is loses a bit of appeal for me based on how poorly I think the issue was wrapped up and turns an issue that I would have given five lanterns into one that gets four out of five.

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie Sep 1, 2014

    The best thing I can say about this issue is that my biggest problem with the book to this point, that Sinestro just doesnt seem to understand that hes the villain, was a non-factor this time around. I have little doubt its something thats going to come up again as the series goes on though so Ill save that for another time. While not a great issue, there are good ideas here that could become something given time, so if this series interests you at all, you might want to think about picking it up for no other reason than to make sure DC continues to let a Sinestro solo series be a thing.

    This latest revelation is a game changer for Sinestro and it will be interesting to see where Cullen Bunn takes it. The bulk of the issue is a conversation between Hal and Sinestro but it was a good one , the dialogue seemed very natural. dale Eaglesham returns to art duties and turns in his best cover to cover work yet.
