Jeff Lemire Returns To Marvel With SENTRY!
Featuring the stellar art of Avengers: No Surrender’s Kim Jacinto!
New York, NY—March 7, 2018—This June, The Sentry is returning to the Marvel Universe, along with writer Jeff Lemire (Moon Knight) and Kim Jacinto (Avengers: No Surrender) in an all-new story!
“Having made his dramatic and unexpected return in Donny Cates’ DOCTOR STRANGE story, it was a no-brainer for us to move ahead on an actual SENTRY series! And it was my great fortune that Jeff Lemire was eager to lend his talents to the project, as it will live in the sort of off-kilter headspace that his MOON KNIGHT and Black Hammer projects exist in,” said SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “And Kim Jacinto, fresh off of AVENGERS: NO SURRENDER is the perfect artist to help visualize the worlds of this shining champion who’s also got a dark underbelly.”
“The Sentry is a fascinating character,” Lemire told Comicbook.com. “I absolutely loved the original Sentry series by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee when it first came out, so I jumped at the chance to write the character. The Sentry has a lot of emotional depth and a lot for me to dig into in terms of the psychology of the character.”

so, um ... yay?
Is this Marvel's response to Bendis writing Superman?
I hadn't thought of that, but you could be right.
Still, I have enjoyed Lemire's Black Hammer. If he does something similarly off-beat here, it could be interesting.
Pretty much the reaction of everyone I've heard from. I don't think the character has ever worked, except maybe in the mini that Jeff Parker did.
