I'm a big Firestorm fan, so Kurt Busiek didn't have to do too much to have me enjoying this issue. The book does a pretty solid job of continuing to develop the tension within the group, with Manhunter's little stunt at the press conference being a nice little look at how the media can be manipulated. There's also some little character moments, as Firestorm's arrival is a fun look at his impressive power levels, and seeing Witchfire wrapping Striker Z around her finger made for an interesting moment. The cliffhanger we end the issue with is also pretty solid. As for the art, Tom Grummett's turning out some very strong work in these pages, as he delivers visually exciting action sequences, and the design of the swamp demon is pretty impressive. He also does some pretty nice work on Firestorm's powers, and the opening shot of the character would've made for a good surprise if the cover hadn't already spoiled it. Read Full Review
I can't say much about the Witchfire and Striker Z component since their battle leads to a startling cliffhanger. Let's just say if one of the firm gets out of this predicament I know who should hire them next for medical services. Read Full Review
