    I'm a fan of Yildiray Cinar in general, but there's something a little off about these pages. Actually, I think the problem may be in the coloring. Several of the pages look too light, like the blacks are washed out. I noticed it in the first issue as well, but I thought it was a printing error. Now I'm wondering if Steve Buccellato is experimenting with the colors. It's a valid idea, but I don't think it's quite working. But just about everything else, fortunately, is. Read Full Review

Instead, it feels like a muddled mess that has lost sight of pacing, and isn't making characters at least interesting to read about, if not actually likable. Fans of Firestorm have been lobbying for a strong book starring Ronnie Raymond ever since the character was killed off in "Identity Crisis." Alas, Raymond fans, it looks like you're going to have to wait a while longer to get that good comic. Read Full Review
