I'm hoping it's because they don't quite know yet what to do with him, and they don't want to overexpose him to the point where the awe and mystery are diluted. He may not be someone who can make regular appearances, but might be better handled with carefully selected storylines. It's a catch-22: we want more, yet familiarity may kill what makes him special (something like that).
Shinier than a speeding bullet.
It's a manipulation of the original artwork - and in that case it's a rip. The guy, who made those, changes other peoples art and puts his own tag "by Jor-El" on the images, without giving credit to the original artists.
That's a big no-no. It's actual theft and the reason why I didn't want to post those images in this thread, even though I had considered it for a moment.
Edit: But then again, who am I to talk about theft considering this entire thread, which makes it so that you basically don't even have to buy Sentry comics anymore, since everything essential is already in here... #hypocrisy

Oh sure I know that, I saw the guys other work (on Deviant Art to be precise) and the other images were rips to images of Superman as well.
I used reference in the sense that it obviously isn't Superman: Unchained but you know what it is from by the stance and stuff. I could've used a different word instead but I didn't mean reference so far as to mean it was his own artwork. I mean you get it in a lot of variant covers nowadays. They copy an old front page of a comic from a couple of decades back and change a few things round etc. It's then referencing the previous artwork.
(although I don't think Jor-El intended to do that as much as he was just using it and changing it.)

Also have you asked any questions lately relating to the Sentry to any of the various authors at all? I asked one about a week ago and got nothing. Brevoort's odd though, sometime he can be nice on his page and then sometimes he behaves in a rude manner.

Tom Brevoort constantly has +13.000 questions waiting for him in the que, so there is one reason for him not answering some questions.
Then there are obvious questions for spoilers, questions he doesn't know the answers to, questions he is not interested in and straight up stupid questions, that are not worth being answered.
Here are most of the old Q & A's I had posted in the part, in a slightly different format to make it easier for myself. Some of it has already been covered in this thread, but I would like to think that these here offer even more insight:
This respect thread doesn't only cover up Sentry's feats, but also explains the character in great and hopefully understandable and accessible detail. Naturally I've already covered the reality warping / molecule manipulation aspect of the Sentry, but...
I personally choose to go with the molecule manipulation, since that can easily be shown to someone with the help of just one scan - the one, where the Sentry says, that everything he does is based on control over molecules. That's what he personally thinks of his powers as for now and what he thinks, seems to be(come) reality.
So why confusing other people with the actual reality warping origin and throwing 5 more scans at them and a bunch of writer statements in the process, when it doesn't really change anything? In both cases the Sentry can do whatever he wants anyway.
"A great tactician creates plans.
A good tactician recognizes the soundness of a plan presented to him.
A fair tactician must see the plan succeed before offering approval.
Those with no tactical ability at all may never understand or accept the plan.
And when a mind is too deficient in understanding, the resulting gap is often filled with resentment."
