The Coming Thing

Some of the September solicits are up. And September is looking like a Green Lantern kind of month so far... I know the Sinestro Corps Special comes out this month. But a very interesting comic called Tales of the Sinestro Corps Presents Parallax #1 comes out that month.

Ragnell has already covered some of the important points regarding that solicitation. Go read what she has to say. if you're interested in the Kyle side of things. For me, it's more about what the special represents. The solicit says it focuses on "members of the Sinestro Corps." I'd say that's slightly misleading, as I sorely doubt that Parallax is actually a member of the corps.

No, it would probably be more accurate to say that this special -- and the ones to come -- deal with Sinestro's allies. Parallax, Cyborg Superman, and... Who else? Oh, you knew I was going to get to this, didn't you?

With the Monitors coming back, did the Anti-Monitor or Anti-Monitors come back as well? Van Sciver reiterated: "See Sinestro Corps Special #1."

I've been flogging this line of thought for a while, as regular readers know. It's been said that the Sinestro Corps Special will have huge repercussions in the DCU as a whole. The Anti-Monitors are in the anti-matter universe as we speak. No one else has the power to enslave the Weaponers of Qward. We know that an Anti-Monitor can do it. He did it once before.

There is no one and nothing else that makes sense. Sinestro couldn't have done it... When he was tossed back to the anti-matter universe at the end of Rebirth, his ring had been destroyed. Something raised him up. Granted him a new ring and gave him the power to raise a corps of monsters 7,200 strong.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The Anti-Monitors are coming.

Well, if Monitors are wandering around, it does make sense that there would be Anti-Monitors as well. Strange and fearsome things would seem to be afoot.

Or just another Anti-Monitor. Since as far as we know there's still only one Anti-Matter Universe...

Van Sciver said 'See Sinestro Corps #1" in response to every Lantern related question asked at Heroes Con. He also had a copy of it sitting at his table, inked, without dialogue or colors. Kalinara, and likely the rest of the world hate me because I did not look at it. I did, however see the last two pages on accident.

Two page spread. Massive invasion force, or at least that's what it looked like. Likely pants-wetting, even without color. I cannot wait for it.
