SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read SINESTRO #1 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).
Thaal Sinestro would like nothing more than to live in seclusion, but Lyssa Drak has other plans for the former-leader of the Sinestro Corps. She disturbs his isolation with her arrival and news that he isn’t the sole survivor of Korugar in the universe—a handful of Korugarians have survived the destruction of their world!

So, we have this hero that wears a lot of black and he’s celebrating a little anniversary this year. Seventy-five years… Ring any bells?
Yes, of course we’re talking about Batman. We’ve been talking about Batman all month long here on DCComics.com, and for good reason. He’s one of the most popular characters in fiction. Not just in comic fiction—fiction period. Batman’s been around longer than most of us, and yet he’s more popular than ever. That’s why we’re having this 75th anniversary celebration.
WonderCon officially kicks off in Anaheim, CA tomorrow!
If you’re heading to the pop culture event this weekend, stop by the DC Entertainment Booth (#401) to say hello! Be sure to attend the fantastic panels and creator signings we’ll be hosting throughout the weekend. And don't forget to pick up some exclusives.
