    This is possibly the best comic book I have read in a long time. Already it is one of my all-time favorites, and it definitely raises the bar for the DC Universe. Theres great action, great suspense, and an ending that will blow your mind. This is not only my Pick of the Week, but it is my Pick of the Summer, and possibly my Pick of the Year. Read Full Review

    Wow, if Green Lantern Sinestro Corps #1 didn't get your heart racing and blood pumping then I don't know what will. This was a truly monstrous issue with tons of incredible revelations. Johns has set the stage for what should be a universe shattering event. If you haven't checked out Green Lantern yet, then I urge you to run to your comic book store immediately and purchase this issue and the upcoming issues of Green Lantern. Green Lantern is absolutely worth your money. Read Full Review

    Both major publishers are currently presenting big events that promise danger in epic scale, but they pale in comparison to the kind of danger the Sinestro Corps bring up to the plate. It makes all big events look miniscule. Readers will devour this story and wonder especially how the two Franchise Players can be stopped by our heroes. I mean these guys make Parallax and Sinestro look like junior varsity players in a professional ball game. I definitely highly recommend this to all readers. Dont miss Sinestro Corps Special #1. You will find yourself opening the book over and over and just shake your head in utter disbelief at the level of power of the villains. Unbelievable! At 64 pages, of which only 8 pages are ads, this books price of $4.99 is a steal. The quality of this book speaks for itself. Read Full Review

    Complaints aside, this comic is amazing. After years of buildup, Johns plans for Sinestro and the Green Lantern Corps have exploded into a truly epic event. The art is brilliant, the characters dead on, and the action nonstop. It was definitely one of the best reads Ive had in a while. Read Full Review

    The backup tale shows a much younger Sinestro befriend and mentor Hal Jordan, who doesnt seem to take his ring seriously enough. This tale is introduced by Lyssa Drak, a Talokian rendered in all the femme fatale glamour Dave Gibbons can evoke. Hal has never been the most likable of the Lanterns (I mean, they had to invent Guy Gardner to give him somebody to appear better than), but theres a feeling in this flashback that an opportunity was lost when the Guardians cast Sinestro out so abruptly.

    Though I still don't know what Lyssa Drax's deal is, Johns's plot and accessible script do a great job of letting the reader know who Sinestro was and how he came to be who he is today. I like the notion that he sees (or at least saw) Hal Jordan as a kindred spirit, and the notion of two friends becoming bitter enemies is a classic conflict, a formula that pays off just as well here as it has time and time again in so many other works of fiction to come before.

    Sure Im mad. I deserve to be after the crap Ive read this year. With publishing delays, short-sighted stories, and ridiculous deaths, I feel I should get more from my favorite line of comics. Who knows if things will rebound at all, but I dont know if they will because of this series. Read Full Review
