Firestorm #3

The introduction of the new Firestorms continues in this issue written by Gail Simone and Ethan Van Sciver.  What I liked most in this issue was  the treatment given to the bad guys.  The way "Helix" and his origin were presented was short, sweet, emotional, and very informative; those few pages did more for the story than the past two issues together, as some questions were also answered.  At the same time, and in the background, the origin of Firestorm's most popular enemy is cooking (or freezing?) slowly but surely.  Yildiray Cinar is finding a style for this series, and the colors by S. Buccellato make a huge contribution to the art.  I still find the interactions between Jason and Ronnie awkward and forced; and speaking of Jason, he was portrayed as an absolute craven; Gail and Ethan sure must do damage control and revidicate him soon.  #3 better than #1 and #2.
