    This was an outstanding issue of this series. Two villains meet to stop a future threat and encounter an unexpected one. Superior story and art. Absolutely recommended! Read Full Review

    It's clear that Bunn and Van Sciver in particular have Sinestro in their blood, and can channel his complicated bravado in a way that few creators can. Getting this gift of Black Adam and what the two characters become when brought together is genuinely something to savor. More of this in months to come, please. And heck, why not another series? Grave and the Gold, anyone? Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Oct 29, 2015

    Sinestro #16 is one of the best issues of the series so far thanks in large part to the world building that Cullen Bunn has brought to the book. The payoff to readers who've been on board since the beginning signals that this series is about to go someplace special. Brad Walker's efforts are as solid as ever but the art takes an upward swing when Ethan Van Sciver's work takes over. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ron Watson Nov 1, 2015

    This issue, even during its slower moments, exemplifies the allure of superhero comics. Great character interactions, ramped-up action, and a connection to a deeper, long-lasting mythology. That being said, this issue is not perfect; The finale, while great, did come across a bit rushed. Another spread would have truly done this book justice. That being said, Sinestro continues to be a book worthy of my money every single month. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 2, 2015

    This book always surprises me on how good it is every month and I don't know why.  Here we are 16 issues in and I'm still flabbergasted at how much this is able to grab me and make me love Sinestro all over again.  He is such a great bad guy and his on-going adventures in controlling the Universe through fear is like watching a game of live action chess.......with constructs and space battles of course.  Here we slow things down a bit though, but Sinestro meeting up with Black Adam is a pairing that I've been dying to see again since Forever Evil and the art depicting it is fantastic.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 29, 2015

    The fact that this series is transitioning directly from the recent Lobo crossover to a new team-up between Sinestro and Black Adam could be cause for concern, but really, who doesn't want to read more of this pairing in the wake of Forever Evil? Read Full Review

    Cullen Bunn has a nice little team-up in the latest issue of Sinestro, as the malevolent ringslinger has a fitting new BFF in the form of Black Adam. Read Full Review

    So briefly, that final page needs to be discussed, I guess. Sinestro came to Kahndaq for potential information on The Paling and finds their not-quite-dead mystery leader (The Pale Bishop) is a freaking Guardian of the Universe! These little guys will just not go away, will they?! Definitely a cliffhanger that should make things difficult for Sinestro and ramp up the amount of action this series desperately needs. I mean, besides Lyssa's unforgivable kick-landing, the only fight scene was Sinestro & Black Adam versus skeletons…Let that sink in a bit. Read Full Review
