The art is going to be gorgeous. When this series tanks, they should move Eaglesham back onto the main GL title where he belongs.

I'm assuming that Parallax WILL play some kind of role in this comic, despite the fact that the preview makes it seem absent. It would be rather silly if Parallax was left out of the clean sweep done of the other entities only to be ignored in Sinestro's comic.

Mentioned in the past tense. Sinestro no longer seems to be hosting it in that Preview.

I am more worried about them using the worst parts of Sinestro's back story. Wich seems like they are going to do since they are already talking about Sornik,and it seems like they are using the the cheezy Ron Marz Origin now.

I am excited,but I am not optimistic.

Right. I read in an interview that the first few issues will explain why he's not hosting Paralaxx anymore.

Or something could possibly happen in Forever Evil #7. Keep in mind this issue was suppose to come out before the release of Sinestro #1

I would guess they would have to put Parallax into the New Central Battery if he is going to run a Corps again. I would have liked to see him do a little more as Parallax though.

My question is,Who dose that fit into the new" The Emotional spectrum is depleeting"? I mean didn't Parallax feed off of fear? Wasen't he so powerful that Even the Guardians could not destroy him because Fear will always exisist? That the best they could do was contain him? This new 52 seems to have made more questions than answers.

I'll definitely pick it up. The art looks good enough, but his face looks kind of strange. I'm not a fan of the beady eyes.

I'm wondering if this book will delve into (and retcon or add to) Sinestro's origin, or will it start up in his current form as Sinestro Lord with the Parallax entity power, or whatever he is now. I haven't read any spoilers, in case anyone is wondering.

Ron Marz didn't write Sinestro's origin.

Are you sure?

He wrote AN origin for him, and the last time we saw his origin it seemed like it was following his lead. Archeaologist, comes across wounded GL, uses his ring to defeat the threat, then lets him die so he can keep the ring...

It was in the Secret Origins of Supervillains 80-page Giant back in 1999. Definitely by Marz.

You are correct sir! I remember when that Secret origions came out. It was at that point I relized that Ron Marz should just stick to writting his characters.

I thought you were a Kyle-er SD8 how did you not know that?

Probably because I forgot all about it.

Still, that's not much of a stretch. They altered Sinestro's past a lot for Emerald Dawn (which was sorely needed), and it looks like Marz just filled in the gaps.

Of course, it doesn't really jive with Johns' version of Sinestro as the best Green Lantern ever, but oh well. Who knows what counts anymore!

The Coolest!

I like his original origin better. I was hoping the reboot would have tossed that nonsense story aside. I don't think that Marz set out to ruin this story though. I honestly believe that he thought it had never been covered in the past.

It seems stupid that the Greatest of Green Lantern's just stumbles upon the power ring. But when you have a well respected GL as his mentor Passing her ring to him,it makes way more sense.

I still hope they find a way to retcon it out.

I'm sure they've forgotten about that by now. It was months ago, man! Ancient history!
