    This week, uncharacteristically, Sinestro is here to allay your fears. Any uncertainty that this comic will be great has to be eradicated by this point. Sure, the issue itself isn't mind-shattering, but Cullen Bunn clearly knows who he is writing, and he clearly wants to go deeper into the mind of Sinestro. There's nothing more Sinestro fans can ask for. Read Full Review

    While many say that Red Lanterns is the sleeper hit of the Lantern titles, I have to throw my hat in for Sinestro.  This title amazes me every month and I love the anti-emotion antagonists, that just work so well in a world where using emotion destroys the universe.  While we don't have Eaglesham this month on art, it's not a big deal because Rags Morales is filling in and who doesn't love Rags?  So go check out this title and get on the trolley because fear is where it's at.

    Sinestro #4 is a great character piece, showing why Sinestro could be the greatest Seafoam Lantern ever and sets the stage for the reunion many readers have been waiting for since Geoff Johns left the flagship Lantern book.  While the Inquisition falls fairly easily at the feet of the Sinestro Corps, I'm sure that we'll see some repercussions of this battle play out in the months to come.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter Sep 3, 2014

    This issue was excellent, mostly because we got to see more of this mysterious Inquisition and what it's powers are. The little window into Sinestro's inner thoughts and fears was revealing, especially with how Jordan-centric they turned out to be. I still find myself compelled to read about Sinestro more for the odd duality of him; Fighting to save a people that hate him and dealing death in an almost offhand, if large scale, manner. This series si shaping up to be an excellent, if not redemption story, then reintroduction of a beloved, morally grey character. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Cole Kennedy Jul 30, 2014

    Although the cover is a little misleading and the defeat of the villains was less than spectacular, Sinestro #4 succeeded in its art and presentation and was successful in drawing readers into the mind of Sinestro and how he views himself, his allies and his battles. This series has proven to be a great expansion of the Green Lantern lore that is sure to thrive for a long time. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jul 30, 2014

    The characters are what have made this book great and theyre what continue to make this issue great. Sinestro has scarcely been this interesting or sympathetic in a long, long time and his Corps is now populated by more than just ravening monsters whose only question is where their next kill will come from. While those ARE still a presence, the more interesting, if off-putting, characters are getting the spotlight they have thus far earned. The plots may have its problems, but theyre more than eclipsed by the strength of this cast. Read Full Review

    If you like the Lantern Corps, I wholeheartedly recommend this, it's actually really solid work, not enough to make me hop around with joy, but it's definitely worth checking out! Sinestro's narrative is an interesting one, can't wait to see where this goes. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 31, 2014

    Much of the talk surrounding issue #4 will revolve around the inevitable showdown teased in the book's final pages, but at this point the appearance of Hal Jordan is more worrisome than exciting, as one fears Sinestro becoming a guest star in his own book. Read Full Review
