Go Buy FURY OF FIRESTORM Trade Paperback

While at your comic shop today, be sure to pick up the trade paperback, The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men — God Particle. It was released last week, but you should still be able to find it in stores.

 Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men God Particle trade paperback

This trade collects the exciting first six issues of the series! If you haven’t tried the series before now, this is a great opportunity to read the entire first arc from Gail Simone, Ethan Van Sciver, and Yildiray Cinar! Also, you get six issues for the price of five! Not a bad deal!

For those that have already read the issues, in addition to the great story and art, you’ll get bonus materials such as: Yildiray Cinar pencil pages, character designs, and improved coloring (there were some coloring errors in the first few issues of the series).

Here is the solicitation:

THE FURY OF FIRESTORM: THE NUCLEAR MEN VOL. 1 – THE GOD PARTICLE

  • Two FIRESTORMS make their explosive returns in the DC COMICS – THE NEW 52 series!
  • As RONNIE RAYMOND and JASON RUSCH learn to work together, they learn that they are hardly the only FIRESTORMS!
  • Collecting THE FURY OF FIRESTORM: THE NUCLEAR MEN #1-6!

Written by: Ethan Van Sciver, Gail Simone
Art by: Yildiray Cinar, Norm Rapmund
Cover by: Ethan Van Sciver
Page Count: 144
U.S. Price: $14.99

Also worth mentioning, on the last page it says, “Continued in Firestorm – The Firestorm Protocols“! To my knowledge the second Fury of Firestorm trade paperback hasn’t been solicited yet. I’ve been a little worried because it should have been advertised by now. So this teaser is encouraging news! We need to support Firestorm-related trade paperbacks. Let’s send a clear message to DC that we’ll support Firestorm comics in trade paperback format. Who knows, perhaps this will eventually lead to DC collecting the classic Fury of Firestorm run from the 80s!

Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!

    Saw this in the shop today, but forgot to check one thing- did they re-do Fury’s dialog? I have this idea that Ethan or someone wanted them to, but I may totally be imagining that ;)

    A lot of trades have very varied release dates. I am surprised Red Hood is out in trade til November. A 2nd Firestorm will probably be in January.

    Also, DC seems to be going back and re-working plots, stories and dialog to make everything mesh better in the big picture.

    Redo the classic “Sweetcheeks” line?! Still, a year later I recall the sinking feeling in my stomach I had after I read that line, you can’t change it now.

  4. Sorry. I refused to buy this.

    Because I bought issues 1-12 on eBay.

    Because of you.

    This is on your head, Shag.

    First time here. I ordered both this trade and the earlier Firestorm trade (the one by Gerry Conway) off of Amazon yesterday as I’ve added the current Firestorm series to my pull list with issue #13 (Dan Jurgens first issue on the book) and wanted to check out the earlier stories. I’ve always liked the look of Firestorm (aside from that Elemental phase he went through for a while) but I’ve only read a handful of issues with the character himself (#1, #38, #63 and #80 of the original The Fury of Firestorm series, plus about 10 issues of the Jason Rusch series, from about #1-5 and then #23-28). Most of these I bought in back issue bins and such as Firestorm comics were hard to get as a kid (only conveneince stores and drug stores sold comics back then, and usually only stuff like Spider-Man and Batman). Are there any “quintessential” Firestorm stories I could read? Most of my knowledge of the character comes from old cartoons and those few comics I mentioned.

    Thanks for all the comments!

    @Jon – I think there was discussion that not all the creators were on-board with Fury talking, but once it appeared in the comics it was staying. No dialogue edits that I’ve noticed.

    @Scott – A while back DC Comics announced their collections through April 2013 with no second FIRESTORM trade, so I was nervous. Hopefully the “Continued in…” line is an indicator that will eventually happen.

    @Michael – I’ve been blamed for worse things! Hope you enjoy them! I’m sure they are in your “To Be Read by 2016″ pile. :)

    @CraigM – Welcome! Thanks for stopping by! If you want some good old-school Firestorm comics try:
    Fury of Firestorm (1982 volume) #14-18, and Annual #1
    Fury of Firestorm (1982 volume) #62-64, and Annual #5
    Firestorm (2004 volume) #8-13
