Top Five Most Iconic Sinestro Covers

by  in Comic News Comment

Here are my picks for the top five most iconic covers featuring Sinestro (with iconic being determined by what covers are most established and most recognized when it comes to Sinestro, with a preference towards covers that are homaged a lot). This is not a BEST cover list and due to the very nature of icons, very few (if any) recent covers will be on the list. A notable exception to the rules is that I don’t count covers from a character’s first appearance (which isn’t applicable to all characters, of course, just those who appeared on the cover of the comic they debuted in), as those tend to be automatically iconic so they’re boring. Here‘s a list of all characters featured so far.

Enjoy!

Just a memorable early Sinestro cover appearance.

Artist: Ivan Reis


The Sinestro Corps War had to be on the list – but this cover or Ethan Van Sciver’s debut cover for the storyline? I’m going with this one, but either one would work here.

Artist: Gil Kane


The introduction of Qward!

Also, an awesome Kane cover.

If this one is going to be high on Hal Jordan’s list, it’s definitely going to be high on Sinestro’s list!

This one was homaged recently during the Sinestro Corps War (with an Andy Kubert cover) AND by Alex Ross for Justice. I don’t know if any other cover on this list has even been homaged once!
