Interestingly enough, while Age of the Sentry #1 seemed to simply be a collection of short stories "that never were" with the Sentry as protagonist and a Golden or Silver Age feel to them, Age of the Sentry #2 implies something different... It also contains two short stories with the same feel, but the ending sequences seem to suggest that there might be more to this miniseries than meets the eye. In particular, the second story's ending sequence seems to possibly suggest that these stories are indeed not real, but might be even just a mental construct used to "trap" the real Sentry. I guess we'll see what the rest of the series holds in store... --Previous Message-- : AGE OF THE SENTRY 1 : : http://www.marvel.com/news/comicstories.4875.Preview~colon~_The_Age_of_the_Sentry_%231 : : http://apps.facebook.com/comicbooks/previews/the-age-of-the-sentry-1-of-6-preview : : http://www.comiclist.com/index.php/news/the-age-of-the-sentry-1-preview : : http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/5632/70466041iu4.png : : : : s : : p : : o : : i : : l : : e : : r : : s : : Fun to read if youre in the mood for a comic : with a Silver or Gold Age feel to it. : : Still not a fan of the Sentry because still : dont believe the amount of truth with his : origins, so far.
