5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Marvel comics 13 April 2010
By Korlis
Format:Paperback
I first encountered the Sentry not in this, his debut limited series, but popping up throughout the Marvel universe. Intrigued by him, I picked this up, wanting to find out more about his origins, his powers, and his arch-nemesis, the Void. I'd also heard fascinating things about how, when the series was first released, much had been done to present the Sentry as a kind of 'missing' character from the Marvel universe, fitting him into the existing continuity and not just introducing him as a new character. After the fact this doesn't have the impact it might have done at the time, obviously, but it does influence the feel of the series in some important ways. It's a little difficult to talk about without spoiling the fantastic storyline, but essentially The Sentry is the story of Robert Reynolds, a former hero who slowly begins to realise that something has happened to make everyone, including himself, forget who he really is. Sensing the return of his nemesis, he goes about reconnecting with some of the biggest Marvel characters, and as his story goes on, there are 'flashbacks' of sorts to his past; each of these flashbacks is in a very different art style with fake comic book covers that suggest a much earlier era of comics. It gets pretty meta, but the juxtaposition between the earlier, lighter art and dialogue with the growing sense of impending doom in the 'present' storyline is actually brilliantly sinister.

I wish I could give this book four and a half stars, because it isn't quite perfect. It collects The Sentry #1-5, which set up the meat of the story, followed by a series of 'one-shots' that fill in some of the Sentry's background with various Marvel heroes.

4.0 out of 5 stars So close! 24 Sep 2005
Format:Paperback
Well, I'll admit it... I had never heard of the Sentry before New Avengers came out. What can I say? My comic book reading had kind of lulled when this title came out back in 2000/2001. More the fool me!
The Sentry is the story of a man who believes he was once a great super hero, but can't remember how he's ended up as a middle aged, alcoholic agrophobic. Something's gone seriously wrong with Bob Reynold's life! But what?
And that's the key to this book... who is the Sentry, and why does no-one remember him? It's a super hero mystery, and by god, it's a real page turner! By the end of the first part I had convinced myself that this was the new Watchmen. Jae Lee's superb art increase the sinister and mysterious tone set by Paul Jenkins expert script to the point where you feel like something really bad is going to happen if Bob can't work this out.
This book collects Sentry 1-5, Sentry/Fantastic Four, Sentry/Spiderman, Sentry/Hulk, Sentry/X-men and Sentry Vs The Void.
Sentry 1-5 Lay out the plot and throw down the questions. It's like a countdown to oblivion, and I actually found myself putting the book down to save it, then 30 seconds later picking it up, opening it, then putting it down again...
Then we get to the flashback stories featuring other characters from the marvel universe as they start to remember who the Sentry is, and this is where it all falls down. The Fantastic Four issue is just plain rubbish. The artwork is horrible (Jae Lee steps of for these stories) and cheap, and the story is hacknied. I know this is kind of the point, as it's trying to take us back to the Silver age in the Marvel Universe, before things got gritty and serious, but after 5 issues of excellent "gritty and serious", it just doesn't work.

The Sentry. Some people love him, some people hate him. Personaly I've always really enjoyed the character, and I didn't at all mind Bendis' writing of him. But it is Jenkins who by far writes the best Sentry, the true Sentry. This unique, original and compeling graphic novel is one of the finest I've ever read. It's a brilliant story, only rivaled by the fantastic, edgey, atmospheric art work. The individual issues featuring Spiderman, X-Men etc do slow the plot down a wee bit, but overall, the highly imaginative story of this interesting and complex character make this truely a gem. Some say that Sentry is Marvel's ripoff of Superman, that seems ridiculous once you have read this book. Other than possessing incredible power, there is nothing the same about Sentry and Superman. With this graphic novel, Jenkins and co have pulled off something truely original, often rare in the world of superhero comics. This is a must read for all graphic novel fans, particularly for those who have disliked Bendis' Sentry.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Golden Guardian Of Good Returns? 9 Feb 2007
Format:Paperback
Yes and no, really. The first Sentry novel has been cited (Fairly, I'd have to say), as Marvel's equivalent of DC's Dark Knight Returns. Continuing with the simile, Sentry Reborn would be the equivalent of Dark Knight Strikes again. Both sequels to two graphic novel masterpieces.

Jenkins does a great job writing the script up until about two thirds of the way through, where the plot seems to trip over itself, and things take a turn for the convoluted. The over-elaborate reboot of Sentry's origins can leave one feeling as though the events in the first Sentry novel never really needed to happen.

The artwork also works in this novel. Gone are the epic, sweeping apocalyptic vistas that were so well imagined by Jae Lee. In comes a fresh, vibrant and punchy style of illustration to match the jaunty and paranoid pace of the script.

Complaints? Maybe only that there was no real catharsis gained from finishing this novel. No new insight into the Sentry. He still remains enigmatic, even after the (Slighty rushed) end messege of "Everybody needs somebody."

Still. This is a great read, and a sound addition to the growing history of the most enigmatic Marvel hero to emerge in recent years. Absolutely recommended to anyone with a penchant for schizophrenic, God-powered heroes. Have fun with it!
