Firestorm & Killer Frost in Crisis on Infinite Earths by Nekemeko

Love this adorable art by Nekemeko of our favorite Nuclear Man up against Killer Frost! This image is an homage to their confrontation in Crisis on Infinite Earths #1. I don’t have a scan of the issue handy, so you’ll either have to trust me or look it up yourself. Click the image below to enlarge.

Nekemeko wrote, “Changing ice-picks into flowers, this is one of the most favorite scene in DC comics ever.”  Well said! For a previous Firestorm related piece by Nekemeko, click here.

Mark Bagley Firestorm Sketch

Check out this recent Mark Bagley convention sketch done for Match-head Roy Cleary!

Firestorm sketch by Mark Bagley

I love Bagley’s work. His Thunderbolts was so much fun! Love that series!

At the same convention Roy had the chance to meet Dan Jolley and Jamal Igle too! Sounds like a Firestorm-filled show to me! While there I imagine Roy was hunting for another copy of the variant cover to Fury of Firestorm #61 from 1987. After all, he’s only got nine copies so far. Seriously.

Thanks to Jay Jones for helping get this sketch scanned! Check out Jay’s Captain Atom blog – Splitting Atoms!

Masters of the Universe vs DC Universe with Firestorm!

What do He-Man and Firestorm have in common, besides both being 1980s cartoon idols? Well, they both recently appeared in DC Universe vs Masters of the Universe #6!

In this issue, our favorite Nuclear Man is under the spell of … wait for it … Dark Orko! Firestorm is out for Skeletor’s blood! Or whatever passes for blood in that skeletal body of his.

April Fool’s Day Hijinks from Count Drunkula & Anj!

Our friend Count Drunkula over at Flowers & Fishnets: A Black Canary blog had some fun at my expense on April Fool’s Day. He re-dressed his blog as … wait for it … FIRESTORM FAN! What?!?!

Drunkula has a unique, and quite possibly psychotic, sense of humor. To completely mess with his reader’s minds, and my own, he switched-up his site. I stumbled across this change while reading a Google Alert for the term “Firestorm Fan”. At first I didn’t realize what I was reading. I thought it was a reference to my own site. Upon the third reading I realized something was desperately amiss. Below is a screen shot of his blog as it appeared on April Fool’s Day! To sell the prank, Drunkula wrote a full-on review of Firestorm v3 #3. That’s dedication! You can still read the post by clicking here (be sure to check the comments).

Flowers & Fishnets: A Black Canary Blog redesigned as Firestorm Fan

Too funny! I was laughing hysterically at Drunkula’s April Fool’s Day fun! They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! I’ll take that! Be sure to check out site on a regular basis. It’s full of fun reviews, great images, and hilarious action figure funnies.

Drunkula wasn’t alone in his April Fool’s Day hijinks! Anj over at the Supergirl-themed blog, Comic Box Commentary, also jumped in the fun. He re-dressed his site as a Nightshade blog, stating he was fed up with Supergirl. Below is a screen shot of his blog as it appeared on April Fool’s Day! You can still read the post by clicking here (be sure to check the comments on this one too).

Comic Box Commentary Supergirl redesigned as a Nightshade blog

Be sure to also visit Anj’s site on a regular basis. He does an excellent job covering Supergirl in all her various forms (classic, New 52, Power Girl, etc).

Thanks for the laughs guys! If you enjoyed these pranks, then check out the 2011 April Fool’s Day blog crossover in which 9 different blogs pulled similar stunts. In that instance, Firestorm Fan was rebranded as “B’wana Beast’s Blog!” Love me some April Fool’s Day fun!
