    Like certain other New 52 books, it's pleasing to see The Fury of Firestorm makes some strides in storytelling quality, and depressing to know that the creative team won't remain stable for much longer. Read Full Review

    A fun story featuring teenagers that is accessible both in art and story is perfect for DC if they hope to capture that younger audience. Z-Tech may want the Firestorms as mascots for the company, but DC might want to think about using Firestorm as a gateway for new readers. Read Full Review

    The ending of this issue gives Simone and Van Sciver a plot point to continue to drive a wedge between Ronnie and Jason, which is sure to lead to the two of them fighting. Again. This book teases out the story quite a bit, but to this point there really isn't much to set it apart from any other story where the protagonists are strung along like fools. Instead of flame-headed pseudo-heroes, Ronnie and Jason could easily be G. I. Joes or members of the X-Men. This series started off with a very strong debut, but has lost some zip along the way. The clunkiness and lack of compelling characters might change up soon, but this issue doesn't do much to bolster that notion. For a book that is this robust with sheer comic book talent, "Fury of Firestorm" is underperforming. Read Full Review
