A while back I published a lengthy post on the aborted Firestorm series from 2003 by Mike Carey and Lewis LaRosa. I’d heard rumors of another series proposed several years ago by Geoff Johns that never came to be. Well… my thanks to Firestorm fan Florian Schwalenberg for sending me some background information on that rumored series!
Wizard Magazine #132 (cover dated July 31, 2002) ran an article on “The 10 greatest comic book stories never told!” Beyond the primary 10, they listed another nine comic stories that went missing in action. My thanks to Florian Schwalenberg for a scan of that page. Click the image to enlarge.
Here is a close-up of the Firestorm section:
This leaves me wondering if it was simply a proposal by Johns or was he actually slated to write Firestorm vol. III. Also, I can’t help but wonder if Stuart Moore was influenced by Johns’ idea when he merged Jason and Gehenna. Hmmm… we may never know. Thanks again to Florian Schwalenberg for the scan!
Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!
