Looking to the future with FURY OF FIRESTORM #8

Jason Rusch rockets to Europe to thwart the next Rogue attack, only to find that other Firestorms have beaten him to it! Introducing the all-new Firehawk, France’s own atomic defender, and Hurricane, Great Britain’s officially sanctioned Nuclear Man! Meanwhile, out of the ashes of last issue’s shocking climax, Ronnie Raymond and the Russian Firestorm, Pozhar, begin a long, mutual descent toward the dark underbelly of the Firestorm Protocols. New cowriter Joe Harris (Ghost Projekt) continues this acclaimed series with superstar artist Ethan Van Sciver, who provides another stunning issue of full interior art!

Wow! Joe and Ethan are really taking things up a notch! First off, what an amazing cover! Firehawk, Hurricane, and Jason look fantastic! I’m dying to learn more about these new Firestorms. I really dig the way the Great Britain flag was worked into the Firestorm costume design. So cool! And the new Firehawk is beautiful and off-putting at the same time. Interesting. Personally, I’m speculating that Firehawk will NOT be Lorraine Reilly, and that Hurricane will feature some nods to the old Firestorm villain Typhoon. Just my current guesses. We’ll have to see!

Below are the pencils for Ethan’s cover to issue #8. Such an amazing amount of detail! Click the image to enlarge.

I’m really enjoying the current issues of Firestorm, but I’m also getting really anxious for issues #7 and #8! Can’t wait!

Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!

    Okay, I’m pretty stoked to see Firehawk again, even if this is a new version!
    I might actually skip through grass fields with glee if they can manage to mix characters like Killer Frost, Brimstone and Tokamak into this new take on flamehead!
