So, yesterday kinda sucked for us Match-heads. If you haven’t seen the news, there is a little tiny snippet in an article on CBR. Click here to read the entire article. The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man #20, shipping in May, will be the final issue of the series. Click here to read Dan Jurgens response to the cancellation.
The cancellation of The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man wasn’t terribly surprising as we’ve all heard about the low sales. However, I personally find this cancellation disappointing because the past four issues of Firestorm by Dan Jurgens, Ray McCarthy, and Hi-Fi have been a breath of fresh air, both for the character and for superhero comics in general.
My thanks for all the kind messages I received on Thursday. You guys are amazingly supportive of the character and me personally. I truly appreciate it. Hopefully Firestorm will continue with the Justice League so we can get our monthly fix of ole Match-head.
Not surprisingly, I’m feeling pretty down right now. I’ll see if I can muster some positive spirits within the next few days. In the meantime, be sure to submit you entry for the “What Do You Like About Firestorm” contest! Given the dark cloud over the Nuclear Man’s future right now, this contest is even more important!
