Series Finale this Week

Three years later, the final issue of Firestorm volume 3 is out this Wednesday. We’re promised a new status quo and Dwayne’s writing has been great so far, so I’m very much looking forward to it. Don’t miss it!.

And how about that World War 3? Yeah, some of the story framework doesn’t make a ton of sense, Jason isn’t going to kiss Lorraine and, hey, weren’t there people on that carrier? But, all that aside, I found it to be an immensely enjoyable mini-series. Hats of to Keith and John, both of whom have a history with Firestorm. Keith, in particular, did some impressive writing for someone newer to the scripting side of things. His two issue were full of little moments that really sold the story.

On a housekeeping note, I finally updated the Issues page so, while I might be missing a small number of very minor references, I’m basically caught up there. I want to serve as a resource for writers who want to pull Firestorm off the shelf, dust him off and stick him in their books. I have a fair amount of character biography updates to do, as well.

Don’t Miss World War III

Just a reminder that World War III starts tomorrow with Black Adam taking on the world. As I’m sure you know, Firestorm is going to be swept up in the mess. He will have a prominent role in the first WWIII issue named “A Call to Arms”, as noted by the cover. I’m really looking forward to seeing what Keith Champagne has to say about the character and where the whole thing is going.

There’s not much else to report in the realm of Firestorm news. I imagine we’ll be seeing Jason and company in Countdown and there are some hints that Firestorm might have a role to play in the new Infinity Inc. Of course, we’re also just a week away from the series finale and a promised change to the character. I’m interested to see what happens there, but I can’t even begin to speculate on what it might mean.
