    1 thought on “Firestorm, the Nuclear Man”

    1. I've learned recently from social media that Firestorm is a fan favorite. He's been around for about 40 years, but he's hardly gotten any respect. Considered a "B-grade" superhero, he's the type of character that often dies during a major cross-over event in order to throw readers off track when someone like Supergirl, the Flash, or Batman bites the dust. But in the past few months, Firestorm has been elevated to 'A-list' status what with him being a major plot focal point on the CW's The Flash. [...]

    2. Reprints Firestorm #1-5, Cancelled Comics Cavalcade #1, and Flash (1) #289-293 (March 1978-January 1981). Ronnie Raymond is out to impress Doreen Day when he accidentally joins forces with a terrorist group out to stop a nuclear experiment by Professor Martin Stein. When the experiment goes horribly wrong, Professor Stein and Ronnie find themselves transformed into the superhuman being known as Firestorm: The Nuclear Man!Written by Gerry Conway with art by both Allen Milgrom and George Perez, Fi [...]

    3. I'm really glad that this collection is available. Firestorm was one of my favorite heroes as a kid. That being said, this isn't really the series that got me interested back in the 80's. This is a collection of the five issue original series along with a black and white release of the never published 6th issue and then the beginning of the back stories that were part of the Flash comic book for a while.The biggest problem with this comic is the absolutely atrocious writing. The writer, Gerry Co [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this trip down memory lane, and it firmly reminded me why I liked Gerry Conway's writing and Firestorm the character. My comic reading peak as a kid and young adult was the late 70's to late 80's, and Firestorm featured a lot in that reading.This overdue collection collects together Firestorm's short lived first series, with some back ups from The Flash comic, a nice 175 pages for your money. Firestorm was essentially Conway's take on a Spider-Man type character for DC, with a f [...]

    5. I grew up reading Gerry Conway, but I'd never read these. I read some of V2 by Conway, and they weren't bad. These however are abysmal four issues in. It's interesting to see the weak origins of Multiplex, the first Killer Frost, and The Hyena. Simplistic to a fault. Multiplex pretty much gets his powers, complains of pain, and two pages later suddenly has a name and a costume. The Al Milgrom art saves it from a complete waste of time though.EDIT: And I am done. The art is all that is good in th [...]

    6. Bought for PhD research- specifically for the issue concerning Killer Frost. (Very useful for that!)Not overly fond of the 70's writing style of putting overly wordy captions over the images, and the colouring makes me feel like I've popped E or somethingbut it's not the worst thing I've ever read, I guess. I suppose coming at this with a specific purpose will have made my reading experience differ somewhat to those wanting to read about Firestorm and the early adventures of the character.

    7. I've had a Firestorm action figure since 1987, but other than that we've had no interaction. This collection was surprisingly entertaining. It contains the original six issue run (including the issue that only ran in Cancelled Comics Cavalcade) as well as the back up stories in Flash comics. It's a pretty good overview of the character, but it clearly didn't have time to fully develop. It left some hanging storylines including Ronald's dad, the principal and the P.I. It also includes team-ups wi [...]

    8. A favorite character of mine as a kid, this collection was a great nostalgic read for me. I had forgotten how many of the plotlines that turned up in Fury of Firestorm had started here. This includes the original 5 issue series, that was cut short by the DC Implosion, plus the 6th issue story that was only ever printed in the hard to find Cancelled Comics Cavalcade. The collection is rounded out by the 8 page backups that were originally printed in The Flash. Hopefully this sells well, and they [...]

    9. This collection shows why Gerry Conway was one of the worst comics writers at DC in the 1970s. Hackneyed plots, just plain bad writing, and unbelievable situations (even for comics), i'll give him credit for creating a great character, but that's about it. The art is pretty good for it's day, too.

    10. pretty dated as you can tell from the start Drawings are nice though, but the conversations and the one-liners terrible :)

    11. Always loved the original Firestorm comic so having him turn up in the Flash TV series was a punch the air moment.
