After reading this issue written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, I started thinking about those Firestorm fans who might be disappointed with -or expected something different from- the Nuclear Man title. To those fans I say "The Ray is the book you were looking for!" Its youthful and fresh approach, with touches of humor and campy situations, is complemented by the writing style that breaks the fourth wall as the character talks to the readers, making of this a fun and enjoyable book. The visuals by Igle, Perrotta, and Major, are full of energy and dynamism, with panels rich in color and detail. If there is something to object about this issue, is the excess of character development; added to the already mentioned fact that The Ray walks readers through his inner thoughts, there was too much Lucien and Chanti, so next issue may want to bring it down a tad.
