Back in September, Cryptozoic Entertainment released a set of trading cards for DC Comics The New 52. This set features all-new, original art, with a base set of 71 cards that cover some of the best-known characters from DC Comics. The text is written by Adam Beechen with art by numerous different artists. If you’re a collector there are also several chase card opportunities, such as: foil, die-cut Lanterns cards; lenticular Work-In-Progress cards; and rare artist sketch cards.
Firestorm (Ronnie Raymond Firestorm Protocol incarnation) was included in the set! Check out the gorgeous Todd Nauck Firestorm card below! By the way, just in case I’ve never said it here… I LOVE TODD NAUCK’S ART! I’ve been a fan for years and follow his blog regularly. Todd’s done some Firestorm commissions previously, but I believe this is the first time he’s drawn the character officially for DC Comics!
As mentioned, the set also contains rare artist sketch cards. These inserts feature original artwork from over 100 sketch card artists. To give you an idea how rare these sketch cards are, the distribution is 1 artist sketch card per 24 packs of cards. Check out this artist sketch card by Dan Borgonos featuring the brand-new, post Fury of Firestorm #0 incarnation!
Pretty cool that Firestorm was included in the set twice! For a checklist of the entire trading card set, click here!
