Check out this fantastic 1979 sketch of Firestorm by Al Milgrom! I thought this would help us get ready for the big interview tomorrow with Firestorm creators Gerry Conway and Al Milgrom!
Truly classic Firestorm! Interestingly, this was drawn during a period when Firestorm’s continued existence was questionable. He’d only appeared in five issues of his own series before being canceled (Oct/Nov 1978). This sketch was drawn after the cancellation, back when there were no definite plans to use the character any further. It wasn’t until DC Comics Presents #17 (Jan. 1980) that Firestorm would return to the DCU.
My thanks to Philip Rutledge for granting permission to post this sketch from his own collection. Be sure to check out Philip’s amazing collection of Firestorm sketches on ComicArtFans.com! Philip is a long-time Firestorm fan and owns a few other sketches we’ve posted here previously. Thanks, Philip!
I’ll see you all back here tomorrow for the all-new interview with Firestorm creators Gerry Conway and Al Milgrom!
Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!
