Tales of the Sinestro Corps Presents: Cyborg Superman (DC – Burnett / Blaine / Leisten / Van Sciver) – Here is what DC has to say about this book: “Who is Hank Henshaw? What made him the Cyborg Superman, and what does he hope the Sinestro Corp can give him? Alan Burnett (SUPERMAN/BATMAN, Batman: The Animated Series) peels away the mysterious layers of the mechanical monster as the new JLA Watchtower’s defenses are put to the test against him and the Sinestro Corps!”
This pretty much says it all. For you readers who where not Superman fans in the late 80’s (there were only a few of us) and don’t know who the heck Hank Henshaw is, or why he’s a machine-man with Superman’s DNA, then this is the perfect way to catch up on the past twenty years. What I loved about this book was that it wasn’t just a history lesson, but did have story development of the Sinestro Corps. War.
Once again, we see DC Comics doing it right by producing one-shot cross-overs that actually apply to the event it’s tied to. I’m still trying to figure out why I read two issues of World War Hulk: Ghost Rider. No such issue with Tales of the Sinestro Corps. DC is 2-for-2 on these one-shots, and I’m betting they go 4-for-4 with the upcoming Superboy-Prime and Anti-Monitor tales.
