Fury of Firestorm!!!

Firestorm is the ongoing adventures of two dudes that can't stand eachother, have the "firestorm" transformational super-powers (scientifically can transform elements into other elements, turn fire into water, baking soda into gold, stuff like that) which they are in control of but should they lose control, get angry, they combine to make a horrific elemental monster firestorm.

Gail Simone and Ethan Van Sciver did write, but now Joe Harris and Ethan Van Sciver write the monthly title, with Yilderay Cinar on art.

Green Arrow

Now the Batman Parallels are unavoidable... but rich mega-mogul Oliver Queen decides to buy super gadgets and fight crime.  Namely a Bow and arrow.  known for his "trick arrows" like... the punching glove arrow.

He was a jolly swashbuckling like fellow, but has since become more cerebral and serious.  No punching glove arrows anymore.  sadly.

JT Krul WAS writing, but now Keith Giffen and Dan Jurgans, along with Dan Jurgans on art duties provides us with the monthly adventures.

Batman & Robin

Ok so, I wasn't happy with the OTHER sketch as my Batman & Robin entry.  I definitely dug much deeper for this piece.  Batman & Robin leaping outta the Batmobile!

And the media difference (ink vs. pencil) is very much noticable.  I bought a Faber-Castell Pitt brush marker, quite a famous tool in the comic book and graphic fields, but I had yet to try.  I liked its ease of use for sure (spotting blacks has always been difficult for me, this helps negotiate with your fear of "wrecking it").

Batman & Robin is the comic of Bruce Wayne and his SON Damian Wayne working out the dynamic of being crime-fighting partners and having family drama. Written by Peter Tomasi and Drawn by Patrick Gleason
