Preview: Age of the Sentry #1

Posted by Luke Brown On August - 29 - 2008

The Sentry returns. Again. For the first time. Kind of. Anyway, Jeff Parker and Paul Tobin (two writers I really like) are bringing us Golden Age adventures of the Sentry. I’m curious to see how this is going to turn out. Hit the jump for a sneak preview of the first issue.

Get ready, True Believers, as the Sentry soars onto shelves this September in an all-new limited series, The Age of the Sentry #1 (of 6)! Join red-hot writers, Jeff Parker and Paul Tobin, along with rising-star artists Nick Dragotta and Ramon Rosanas, as they unveil the secret history of the man with the “power of a million exploding suns!” When the Golden Guardian is severely injured, it is up to Scout, Lindy Lee, and Watchdog to save the day. In order to do so, though, they’ll have to travel back in time and learn how Rob Reynolds became the Sentry! PLUS: a startling new story featuring the Tinkerer and the Mad Thinker as they team up to build the ultimate device to steal the Sentry’s powers, the parasitic beam! The Sentry is the only thing standing between them and world domination…

Editor Mark Paniccia told Marvel.com, “Jeff and Paul have an amazing respect and understanding of the magic of the Silver Age, and the approach of entertaining and inspiring readers by pushing the limits of the imagination… And Nick Dragotta’s got the [Silver Age] style down pat!”

What will happen if the Sentry’s alter-ego is exposed? Will the Tinkerer and Mad Thinker’s evil scheme destroy the Golden Guardian? Read on, True Believers, and don’t miss these breathtaking new tales in The Age of the Sentry #1 (of 6)!
