Firestorm #9

Writers: Ethan Van Sciver & Joe Harris
Artist: Yildiray Cinar

Jason Rusch, Firehawk, and Hurricane welcome the help of the Justice League International as a terrorist Firestorm from Qurac threatens with leveling Paris. This issue did redeem Jason to some degree by portraying him more in control and with none of the idiotic behavior of the past several months. Firehawk, however, is the one who catches not only the reader's eye, but also the JLI's attention, and having her join their ranks would be a splendid idea -that could be on hold, though, due to the uncertain fate of the JLI series. Another layer of complexity is added with the introduction of Wrath, who, without spoiling too much, looks and feels much better than Fury ever did. Ronnie, in the meantime, is on his own journey, and it seems the writers are taking their time to slowly elevate him to a new level of greatness. Yildiray Cinar returns with explosive visuals, and HiFi's colors bring them to life, resulting in an enjoyable book.

  1. Thank you. Having read the book I had no idea what was going on. Qurac, eh?

    Great review!
