    The Blue Flame is building a case as a series with a dark message about humanity that's worth a look. Whether it ends positively or in a dark place remains to be seen, but it's compelling how the story is framed and drawn elevating this beyond just another superhero story. The Blue Flame hasn't reached a fatalistic place yet, but its probing of humanity's moral value is bold and frightening. Read Full Review

    The scope of the story expands while at the same time becoming all the more personal – on both fronts. I'm naturally more attracted to the galactic questions being posed here by the consensus and the like than the human drama of Sam and his sister if only because the latter is far more accessible across a lot more media. It's well-done and I'm interested to see where it goes and if it ties to what Sam is going through. At the same time, the big questions being asked of Sam are things that tend to be dealt with less frequently so I'm definitely a lot more interested in seeing that unfold. Both are done just right and Cantwell and Gorham have another very solid installment. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jun 25, 2021

    The Blue Flame #2 continues to blur the line between fantasy and reality, placing its protagonist on the brink of death in dueling stories. I'm not sure where the creative team is going with this concept, but they certainly have my attention and I'm curious to see where the endgame lies. Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone Jun 21, 2021

    This series is giving me familiar vibes to one of my all time favourite comics Reborn by Mark Millar and Greg Capullo and that is enough to keep me hooked. This issue does a great job exploring what could be out there beyond the realms of space but it also makes you think about life, death and the beyond. Clever storytelling with some great illustrations makes Blue Flame a series not to be missed. Read Full Review

    "The Blue Flame" #2 spends a lot of time away from Sam. As a result, the issue bogs down and the questions keep piling up. Read Full Review
