Can’t wait for tomorrow — we finally get our hands on The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man #2! Today we’re posting some news and hype-related links to get you jazzed for tomorrow! First up, the news…
Yesterday artist Yildiray Cinar posted a super-cool new teaser image promoting issue #2! This image is similar to the teaser images released prior to issue #1. Who is featured in this teaser? Possibly the new villain Helix? Click the image below to enlarge.
Colorist Steve Buccellato and artist Yildiray Cinar have both indicated there was a printing problem with The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man #2. Buccellato posted a few pages to Facebook showing, “what they were SUPPOSED to look like.” Cinar indicated we’d see the problem when the issue is released. Below I’ve posted three different versions of the first page from issue #2. Right away I notice the colors are much more muted in the third page below. I’m not sure if that is the printing problem or not, but it’s worth noting.

Below is the page as it appears in the five page preview on Kotaku
Again, if you compare the second and third image, you’ll see a dramatic difference in the coloring. I’ll guess we’ll have a better understanding of the printing problem tomorrow.
