Firestorm #6

After the terrorist attack by the Firestorm from Qurac, Ronnie and Jason are left with an "Aftermath of Rage." While Ronnie's reaction to the heinous act is well written, it's Jason who once again is rendered as a total jerk.  It is not just the perceived indifference, but the words coming out of his mouth that also put the character in a really bad light. The scale of the attack from last issue is huge, and even in the world of comics, such an event would have had worldwide ramifications; so if the next issue does not address reactions from the rest of the DCU, then Van Sciver and Simone may have miscalculated the impact of their onslaught. Yildiray Cinar continues shining with his artwork, and Norm Rapmund's inks and Hi-Fi's colors just make it even better. As a whole, the issue is better than previous installments, but the next one has its work cut out for it.
