    Blue Flame continues to be an interesting series but I'm more interested in it now as we see Sam trying to reconcile with the past in regards to the Night Brigade and their deaths while also delving into the actual trial side of things in space. Both present familiar elements and tie together well while being their own thing, which gives Gorham a whole lot to play with here visually, both in layouts and the actual design elements. It's a lot of fun and it's a good emotional layer to it as we get things out of both Sam and Reed that really humanizes them wonderfully. I'm curious to see how it's all going to go by the end but it continues to be a solid journey. Read Full Review
