Writer Cullen Bunn said he was using Geoff Johns’ interpretation of Sinestro as a base, but it is hard to recognize that in this issue of the former Yellow Lantern leader’s solo series. A villain going solo is hard to do, but Bunn here gives us Johns’ full range of Sinestro, and then unbelievably embellishes same with a load of Chaplin pathos.

Never thought I would be seeing the cosmos through Sinestro’s eyes, but the New 52 Hal Jordan should find himself half as interesting as his arch foe in this new series. (Sorry, Hal.)

Of course, Bunn has a field day herein with Sinestro coping with his major foe. And no, that foe does not wear green. And it is not contained within a yellow beastie. But you are close. It is in fact something from which Sinestro cannot run, something with which he must live and cope every day, something he desires and despises all at once.

It is fear!

Not the yellow power ring version, the real deal. The fear that makes those hairs come up on the back of your neck, the fear that makes you wonder if you are God’s chew toy. You know: FEAR!

Bringing this to life is artist Dale Eaglesham, doing cosmic on the gritty Deep Space Nine side rather than the smooth, space-faring work we have seen from him on Fantastic Four in days past. And it works, beautifully!

This is going to be a curious ride, but I am here for now … and next month.
