Hal Pictures Green Lantern Butt's FOREVER!: Sinestro

Green Lantern Butt's FOREVER!

Now with Guy Gardner's Seal of Approval!

Monday, April 16, 2007


I don't think that I've really talked about Sinestro before, and I believe that the time has certainly come. Geoff Johns, Ethan Van Sciver, and Dave Gibbons are all planning some REALLY diabolical things in a few short months, and it looks as though all the Green Lanterns are going to be put through the wringer once again.

I must admit that as a villain, I rather like Sinestro. He's mad, bad and dangerous to know. I love the idea that, like the best villains, he feels completely justified in his villainy...he doesn't think he's being evil, heck he's just trying to bring some order out of chaos. And he would have done it, if it weren't for those meddling GL's.

His ego is stupendous, which again, is how it should be. Naming his band of followers the "Sinestro Corps" is perfectly in character for him. I'm also impressed that he seems to be trying so hard to recreate the Green Lantern Corps, except in his own image. They have their own planet now, they have their own history of sorts, their own book of legends, probably their own sectors. They use a ring, they have a stylized emblem, heck they will probably be coming up with their own oath. This is what Sinestro knows, so this is what he uses. I get the feeling that with his obsession with order, Sinestro isn't particularly that imaginative however, and
imagination is what is needed in order to be a good Green Lantern. Not that he'd see it that way of course.

But he's really starting to look and feel like a major league bad guy, which is certainly a step up from the old Silver Age portrayal.

Great Sinestro.

I keep thinking that this artist (I forget) would be great doing something underwater - they should throw some Aquaman work his way.

Ethan Van Sciver was BORN to draw Sinestro. And I imagine that once Moose Bauman gets finished with it, the colors will be breathtaking.

But yeah, some underwater action would be fun.
