For those of you looking to gain insight into how Bunn might handle Sinestro, Magneto #1 came out last week and is also written by Bunn.

Don't know if I should open a new thread for this (if so, then could a mod could seperate the posts please?), but I'd like to know, what your expectations about the Sinestro-Series are?

What do you expect storywise?
How tight should it be connected with everything that's going on elsewhere?
Do you think the Sinestro-Book will be like another Red Lanters?

Since I'm not that thrilled by the current state of the GL Books I hope, that the Sinestro-Book will be a nice addition to the GL Universe or the other books. To be honest I hope the book won't be too tight connected with the others. Of course it should be related, but I hope they focus on it's on standing, with it's own history, villains (?) and so on. Story-crossing is ok, but not too often.

It'll be fluff.

I think it could've made a good mini-series, but it will struggle after the first arc or so.

Why so pessimistic? Because of the artists? Or because they're messing up GL on a large scale?

Is it the first time, Sinestro gets his own book??

Well, like Mr. Ed posted before, I'm always leery of villains carrying their own book. They inevitably lose their mystique or are softened into anti-heroes.

Yeah, I was thinking that as I posted. If it wasn't done before that (and it kind of was), it certainly happened when he put Thaal back in a GLC suit.

I don't want to see Stewart-esque angst about the loss of Korugar.

I don't want to see a softening of the character.

I don't want to see another Parallax-possession walking-through-time-and-space-making-it-right series.

Give the villain some villains. Let him bash some heads.

Thumbs up

I want there to be a line drawn in the sand. I want the reader to have to choose a side. Use will,and try to change peole hearts and minds to make them do right. Or use fear to make people co-exisist now or perish. Classic Good Cop, Bad Cop. I want both sides to have a valid argument of how thier way is the best way.

I want a new Sinestro Corps. Not just trying to spread Fear for the sake of,messing with the GL Corps,but because they believe it is a valaid reseorce. I want to see GL turn against GL. I want to see some side with Sinestro and join his cause.

I want a war of Ideas. I want it to become a debate amongst fans,like Civial war was for Marvel. Only Bigger.

That will never happen. What will happen is that Sinestro will be the the new Guy Gardner: Warrior.

Yeah we will most likely see him hook up with Lyssa Dark,and try to make a relationship with his daughter To make him more human and relatable God Forbid a alien behave alien.

I think it would be cool if the universe was choosing sides to. So in other planets that other superheroes visit,you see the Fear symbol painted on walls in the back ground. or Will depending where you are. Subtle nods that say this is a big thing happening in the universe.

I actually really liked the first issue. I've been re-reading the series and I will say I dig it a lot. Sinestro reminds me a little of Alhazred from Don Tyson's Necronomicon; he's a bastard, but one with a defining sense of honor and will power. I think it makes for an interesting read, I actually like this series more than the current titles out.

I plan on writing little mini-review for each issue I cover. I want to go over them all now with a fresh set of eyes. I really liked it better than Red Lanterns or the Larfleeze series.

I liked it quite a bit, the bromance with Black Adam I remember particularly liking.

I get that a comic starring a villain will probably gloss over what made them a villain in the first place, but I was entertained.

I'm not a big fan of villains redeeming themselves only to "break bad" again but I like it when they examine the logic and ethos of someone like that and try to make some sense of them. Nobody sees themselves as the bad guy; it's an attempt to reconcile that thinking with how the rest of the world sees them. I am trying to determine if they've successfully fleshed out Sinestro by the end of the series, or if the effort was only half baked. So far I am digging it, and I've liked the odd issues I've read here and there. Now it's time to binge read and see things with a fresh set of eyes.

Red Lanterns was awful from the jump. So it being better than that isn't saying much.

Anyway, I agree with most. It was a decent series with some good character interactions and if it weren't so crossover happy and had bigger stakes, it may have been something special.

Yeah, this wasn't a bad series. I wouldn't call it great, but it was a bit better than okay. It used Sinestro, Lyssa Drak, and Soranik pretty good, and Dale Eaglesham's art is good. It is better than the Green Lantern comics DC is currently publishing, in my opinion.

Same here, but I am usually attracted a bit more to the darker stuff anyways.

Very good series, would have liked to have seen his relationship with Bekka explored more. As it is now, she has disappeared from anything related to him.
