Fury of Firestorm as Written by Jurgens

Postby Stephen Day » Sat Feb 02, 2013 11:41 am

I'm just curious about whether or not I'm alone in thinking that Fury of Firestorm is one of DC's most improved series over the past few months. For it's first few months I was buying this series because I really like both Ronnie Raymond and Jason Rusch as characters and I was hoping for an improvement. Now days, I love what Dan Jergens is doing with this series. The current storyline dealing with Dr. Megala and his organization (which seems to have wrapped up with this week's issue #16) was the most fun I've had reading a Firestorm story in a good while.

I hope Jergens continues to write this series for awhile. I know looking at the sales levels that Fury of Firestorm probably won't last long term -- one can hope though.

Do you mean Jurgens?

I imagine a Firestorm comic written by Jergens would involve Ronnie and Jason constantly interrupting the action to put some lotion on their hands.

Since Jurgens has taken over the tone has shifted back to what most long-time Firestorm fans will appreciate. It's super-heroics with a lighter twist. This week's issue came across, to me at least, as some very groan-worthy dialogue. Curious as to what others thought about it.

Dammit, sorry brain fart in spelling the name on my part. I even had the comic out when I was starting this thread so that I could see his name on the cover to make sure I wasn't misspelling it. :oops:

So you DIDN'T mean Jergens?

"Holy crap, Professor Stein! That villain, the Weather Man, has caused my skin to get all dry and cracked!"

"Don't worry, Ronnie! Simply use your powers to create this: it's the chemical formula for Jergens Natural Glow lotion! It's the best way to moisturize AND soften! It's a great way to more beautiful skin!"

"It worked! My skin feels better then it ever has! Thanks, professor!"

"Don't thank me, my boy; thank Jergens Natural Glow!"

Yeah, I'm keeping the misspelling in place now. :lol:

Well, at least in the OP, I'm changing the thread title to the correct spelling.

I'm really enjoying Firestorm - Jurgens has captured the feel of the early issues of the 80s FoF. Definitely one of DC's best titles, just hope it lasts.

I've enjoyed it considerably. Though I wonder about what'll happen with Captain Atom after #15.

One aspect of him is still in the time-stream as Captain Adym from Legion Lost. But when he "shattered" it looked like several pieces of him were scattered. I wonder of we'll see more iterations of him popping up in the Nu52 ?

It's an interesting thought and I hope that DC actually does something like that.
