Rumor of New Firestorm Ongoing Series After Brightest Day!

DC Comics Firestorm Nuclear NewsBrandon Leonard, a long-time fellow Firestorm Fan, contacted me last week with some big news!  While at a fan expo in Toronto, a certain creator from DC mentioned that he’d been offered a chance to write a new ongoing Firestorm comic!  The creator indicated that he turned down the offer because he already had too many projects.  The creator went on to say that a writer Brandon would love has accepted the assignment.  Finally, the creator mentioned that everyone coming out of Brightest Day “alive” would be getting a new ongoing.

Wow!  What a scoop!  My thanks to Brandon for sending this information my way. Now let’s all keep our fingers crossed that this actually happens!

By the way, sorry I missed last week folks.  I was exhausted after DragonCon, and what little energy I had left was expended fighting off a vicious cold.

Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!

    Come on. We need a name!

  2. Shag says:

    Sorry. The creator who shared this information will remain nameless for their own protection. The creator that has supposedly agreed to write the ongoing wasn’t named.

    A new FS series would rock. Hopefully it’ll last this time, but even if it gets ditched after twelve issues, I’d take what I can get!

    I know from another DC writer, who I will not name even under pain of death, that there’s a few announcements coming up in New York. Maybe this is one of them.

    Seems early in the Brightest Day run to be declaring survivors though.

    I’d love to see Adventure Comics taken over, turned into an 80 page book, with all the BD characters in solo strips.

    A man can dream, can’t he?
