The solicitation was released two weeks ago for The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #9 shipping in May. With all the excitement of Plastique Week and the release of issue #6, we haven’t had a chance to talk about this solicitation yet. BIG NEWS — issue #9 features a crossover with Justice League International! Not only does Firestorm get one of the first crossovers of The New 52, but it’s with one of my favorite other books! Check out the super-fun cover below by Ethan Van Sciver!
Jason is looking pretty chummy with the new Firehawk. Is he ditching Tonya for this nuclear babe? Here is the solicitation:

• Don’t miss this crossover with JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL #9!
• RONNIE seeks information – but is the price he must pay too high?
Now, keep in mind Justice League International #9 comes out before Fury of Firestorm #9. So be sure to pick up JLI #9 on May 2 for the first part of this story.
In preparation for this crossover, Yildiray Cinar has been practicing drawing the JLI characters. He’s posted a few of his sketches to Twitter for us Match-heads to enjoy. Below is a sketch Yildiray did of Guy Gardner.
Ethan Van Sciver saw the sketch and decided to ink the image. Below is Ethan Van Sciver’s inks of Guy Gardner over Yildiray Cinar’s pencils. Enjoy!
How cool is that?!?! I’d love to see Ethan Van Sciver ink Yildiray Cinar’s work on a full comic. That would be awesome! According to Yildiray on Twitter, he’ll be penciling the cover to The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #10 with Ethan providing the inks!
I’m really looking forward to these crossover issues! I love me some Firestorm, and I love me some JLI! Can’t wait!
Support Firestorm (and the JLI)! Fan the flame!
