    Do I need to tell you the art is amazing? Samnee is a master of mood and style - every page just sings! Kirkman shows his craftsmanship here as well - he knows when to intrude with crisp dialogue or an informative aside - and he knows when to get out of the way. Terrific work! Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 7, 2020

    Fire Power is a crowning achievement of how something so simple and usually boring can be intriguing and interesting. Fire Power is poignant, funny, heartfelt, and filled with adventure, and we haven't even gotten to the punching yet. It's a celebration of family in the face of dangers outside the home.

    But Why Tho? - CJ Jan 1, 1970

    FirePower#1 flips the "chosen one" trope on its head beautifully, thanks to some amazing art and a solid script. While I do wish the issue was a bit more friendly to new readers, I highly suggest reading it and the graphic novel for the complete experience. Read Full Review

    "Fire Power" is the "I started a family but oh no my past is here" story without any huge reinvention but excellent art. Read Full Review
