Dead man walking.
No matter how good or bad (and it’s not too bad) this new volume of Firestorm is it’s hard to ignore the fact the series has already been cancelled.
Sure, the team up of the new Nuclear Man, Jason Rusch, and longtime Firestorm ally Lorraine Reilly, A.K.A. Firehawk, is an interesting twist, as is their search for the missing Professor Martin Stein — one half of the original Firestorm (he’s a merged being, in case you didn’t know).
Heck, even the why-didn’t-they-think-off-that-sooner team up of super-villains Killer Frost and Mr. Freeze was decent.
Still, you can’t escape that voice in your head that points out that this book collects issues #23-27 of a series that will be toasted by issue #35.
It seems like too little effort, too late to drum up any interest in a half-decent character.
Oh well, I’m sure he’ll turn up in some team book sooner or later.
