Here are some Firestorm news items and findings from around the interwebs:
- Blackest Night #4 came out back on October 28. If you haven’t picked it up yet, be sure to get a copy. It’s a good issue and has one really good Firestorm moment.
- Still no word on an air date for the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode featuring Firestorm. However, I did stumble across some sketches that are supposedly of Firestorm from the Batman: The Brave and the Bold cartoon (see below). I found this image on Toonzone ‘s DC Animation forum.
Just as a reminder, below is the corresponding action figure shown at the San Diego Comic Con this year. The costume designs don’t match up exactly, so I gotta wonder if the picture above is legitimate and/or if the design was changed some during production.
- Firestorm will get his own spotlight issue of DC Comics Super Hero Collection magazine in April 2010! This is the magazine that highlights a different comic character each issue and includes a small metal figure of the character. Your local comic shop should be able to order you a copy if you are interested.
- Jon over at the Fizzit blog got some amazing sketches done recently. Check out his site to see Firestorm sketches by Matthew Clark (Doom Patrol) and Bill Sienkiewicz (just about everything cool).
- I stumbled across an unusual Firestorm custom action figure created by “Doombot”. The custom below was found on Raving Toy Maniac. It was done in the style of the late 1990’s DC Super Heroes Silver Age Collection (which were done in the style of the classic Mego action figures).
- Finally, I happened upon soyboy7’s photostream on Flickr. They’ve taken some really interesting action figure pictures, including this one below of Jason. Neat stuff, check out their pics!
