We discuss the classic Firestorm backup stories from THE FLASH #289 & 290 (1980), by Gerry Conway and George Perez. Featuring Perez’s very first work for DC Comics! This is the first installment in a new reoccurring feature covering backup stories of our favorite heroes. Plus, the new golden age of Aquaman continues as we cover the 2nd issue of AQUAMAN AND THE OTHERS, by Dan Jurgens, Lan Medina, and Allen Martinez.
