Sinestro Corps Ongoing in the Works?

Dan DiDio makes a comment on the possibility.

There are several ongoing titles for the Green Lanterns: GREEN LANTERN, GREEN LANTERN CORPS and GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS. The Red Lantern Corps has their own title and even Larfleeze has his own. What about the Sinestro Corps?

You would think they would be deserving of their own title based on their history and place within the Green Lantern Universe. Some might even say they should have had a series before Larfleeze or even the Red Lanterns. It now appears they just might be getting one.

On Twitter, Boltsman38 asked several DC people such as Dan DiDio, Geoff Johns and Jim Lee. Dan DiDio gave a reply that appears to give some confirmation.

Is this confirmation? It's not official so we'll still have to wait for official confirmation. There was a rumor that this title would be announced at San Diego Comic-Con but it appears that never happened.

The bigger question is what would the series be about? Would this be a series based on the evil Corps? Could they carry their own title and would readers stay interested in a series focusing on their shenanigans?

some lanterns should not have ongoings. maybe mini-series.

id buy it but dont know for how long. i always end up dropping tites like this.

Posted by cameron83

Hm. Sounds very interesting and promising (or just exciting).

But can I just ask how many f*cking Green Lantern titles there are gonna be?

It's like 30 percent batman 30 percent Superman 20 percent Green lantern 15 percent Justice league 1 percent wonder woman,etc.

Isnt one of the lantern titles ending after the lights out arc?

Posted by Aeroman

I think it could work

Isnt on of the lantern titles ending after the lights out arc?

not necessarily. all thats been confirmed is that one of the corps will be wiped out.

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

Why can't we have a non-Lantern Corps cosmic book? DC have LOADS space based characters so why don't they use any of them?

Posted by Paul2814

Too... Many... Crossovers... Let's hope Red Lantern Corp gets wiped out lol and Sinestro Corps takes over with Charles Soule writing. I dear god hope Larfleeze doesn't crossover with any GL books... I need to drop New Guardians and Red Lanterns, but always crossing over. Hoping Lights Out is a good thing.

I'm curious about it, that I will say.

Posted by IDontLikeBirds

Not sure how I feel about this. I think it's safe to say that if the ongoing does happen, they won't be the corps that will be gone, and unlikely for orange as well with Larfleeze being so new or the greens going. I don't see the red's going anywhere now that the series has picked up a bit, so I'm going to guess either indigo or blues are going.

If Sinestro appears regularly then you can count me in on this book. I've always loved how savage and vicious all the Sinestro Corps aliens look. Very excited.

Posted by Outside_85

Eh... unless they actually give them a redeeming reason for being, a Sinestro Corps book will be very limited in what its going to be about; sadism and torture.

Posted by guttridgeb

This seems unnecessary...

Posted by Lvenger

How can they have this book without Sinestro appearing regularly in it? Wasn't he on the fritz after Green Lantern #20?

Posted by Mucklefluga

Itll need a lot of Sinestro to be great en mi opinion

Yellow should've been ahead of Red anyway. That Red Lantern book is awful, maybe with the addition of Guy Gardner it'll pick up.

Posted by jwalser3

You might as well give every corps their own title...

Posted by Protoflash

Meh. It could work. Seeing as sinesro sort of became (almost) sort of a good guy? And if you read new guardians arkillo was one of my favorite characters in it.

Posted by JamDamage

I could see this. Im sick of the whole cosmic thing tho. I'd try it first but end up dropping it if it's even just okay.

Posted by sinestro_GL

I would have liked this idea 6 years ago...

Posted by SoA

if they are like the red lanterns : going around killing scumbags across the galaxy , sure. but i like them better as villains or switch : red lanterns become villains and sinestro corps become the anti-heroes

Edited by BR_Havoc

Of coarse they have one in the works how else can they make more money off of unnecessary Green Lantern crossovers that happen every other month.

Posted by mightyrearranger

Didn't Sinestro freeze everyone except for Arkillo or something? Would be cool if a new head honcho comes along and frees the Corps (Mongul? Despero?! Starro?! Scarecrow?!?!?! lawl), but I agree that without Sinestro himself, the book probably wouldn't sell. :(

Could be about Sinestro trying to take his Corps back (again). Idc, I just want Karu-Sil, Slushh, Moose, and Bedovian back.

Edited by Herokiller12344

@sinestro_gl: Yeah, back when the were villains. But now everyone's "badass" antiheroes.

Posted by JamesKM716

Matt Kindt is supposed to be writing it right?

Posted by sagejonathan

Wasn't this confirmed a while ago?

Posted by The Stegman

In a few more years, the entire Emotional Spectrum will have ongoings.

We already had one Threshold,but is getting canceled because the low sales as many other canceled titles. Hardly people buy titles from lesser known characters, such as Dial-H is one of the best, if not the best, all new 52 and it is still one of the least sold

I would love to see more space based characters outside the Corps,but without a good introduction no one would care about them,if DC Comics usedGreen Lantern titles to introduce them would be more easy. Admittedly a comics that goes on in space, doesn't show even half of that presented in the previous universe, doesn't show if there is other intergalactic police or space heroes.

I want Darkstars,Adam Strange back!!!

Posted by derf_jenkins

I'd read another title to go with the 5 others I'm already reading from that area of the universe.

well sinestro just rejoined the corps so it would be the restructuring of the group and perhaps creating/doing something in memory of korugar

Posted by Mr. Messy Face

If it was Sinestro himself and his corps were just the supporting cast, I could go with it. Otherwise, no.

Posted by Danial79

Why not. If Red and Orange have their own, it seems only fair that Yellow get one.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Amazing read if it does pan out, I'm sure!

Posted by CheeseSticks

Should be a Sinestro solo book

Edited by mcbean

Can't wait this is AWESOME news

Posted by saoakden

Curious about the series. If it's official I'll check it out. Could be interesting.

I'd be way more interested in an Indigo Tribe book or Blue Lantern book honestly. Though to be honest the Sinestro Corps ongoing sounds like it'd make for a better book than Red Lanterns, even if it is supposedly pretty good now.

Posted by KomicKev

I'd rather see a series that included all the different colored corps (Rainbow Lanterns?) in their own individual story lines, 3-6 issues long. I don't read the Red Lantern Corps, I certainly won't pick up LarFleeze, and I won't pick up a Sinestro Corps title either. But if they had an ongoing that spotlighted each color now and then, that might work out better. Just a thought.

Edited by nappystr8

Other than Sinestro himself, I don't know if I consider a single member of the Sinestro Corps to be a compelling character. Seeing as how Sinestro has moved on, I can't imagine the rest of those jokers making for interesting stories. It could certainly be done with the right vision and creative team, hopefully they would keep it a very scary affair full of betrayals and politics.

I'd much rather see an Indigo book, or a Blue Lanterns book. Even Star Sapphires or Black Lanterns would be more interest me more. Personally I think Red Lanterns makes for the most intriguing spinoff, and even that turned into an incredibly bland book for a very long time.

Unless Sinestro rejoins the team I just don't see there being much more than a miniseries worth of material to go on, and after the events of John's Green Lantern work, having Sinestro rejoin his Corps would be a really disappointing return to the status quo.

@jonny_anonymous: because no one reads them and they end up getting cancelled. Such is the sad truth

@komickev: I'm with you. I would very much like to see an anthology series where each story arch deals with a different corps.

Posted by Skulexander

I still want a Saint Walker series.

Edited by ericvk14

This is no suprise...the way DC is canceling books and starting up new ones, i wouldnt be suprised if they where working on a new series about every minor character in the DC Universe that ever appeared....just in case...

Posted by Mbecks14

Very cool. I love the Sinestro Corps!

But another Lantern title? Seems like overkill. I'd like a Carol Ferris' Star Sapphire adventures series? Or another Flash title? Or another Wonder Woman title where she's not sharing the title with a man? Or Booster Gold?
