    The book is a bit silly, but also really fun and heartfelt. It's a blast throughout and hopefully we'll get more adventures from these two. Read Full Review

    The all-star here is definitely Bustos' distinctly Kevin Maguire-influenced art. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Feb 6, 2024

    Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville #6 ends the ill-conceived mini-series the way it started - badly. Starer's pitch and execution are fully terrible, several plot points make no sense, and the finale only partly resolves the myriad of conflicts, but not the most important one. Read Full Review

    From the first page of Issue #1 this book wasn’t shy in being a campy best friend story which didn’t take itself too seriously.

    I gave this an extra point cause it's finally over and that is the best part of this book. There was no point, meaning, humor, excitement, heart or soul to this series. My God.

    Awful. Terrible writing and dialogue. A slap in the face to Fire and Ice fans.
    I can't believe critics read this and actually thought it was good.
