    Title: Building a Better Firestorm, Book One: The Chalk Circle
    Writer: Stuart Moore
    Pencils: Jamal Igle & Eddy Barrows
    Inks: Rob Stull
    Colors: Paul Mounts
    Letters: Travis Lanham
    Cover: Jamal Igle & Keith Champagne (with special thanks to George Perez)
    Editors: Stephen Wacker & Michael Siglain
    Publisher: DC Comics


    The artwork was actually fairly slick on this issue, despite the guest penciller brought in to draw the meat of this issue. Igle only drew the opening sequence, supposedly to keep the next few issues of this title on schedule. Igle was able to give the opening sequence and old school feel. It looked like an sequence from the previous volumes of Firestorm, just with slicker inks. Eddy Barrows did a nice job filling in. He used Igle's character designs, so there is nothing really groundbreaking there. A big highlight of this issue was the way Jason's dad handled the news of Jason's death. From a visual standpoint, it's handled in a tasteful manner that still manages to deliver without being over the top. The cover to this looks like something that was a lot of fun to draw and the George Perez influence is very evident, even without the special thanks at the end.

    When I saw the cover for this issue on the web several months ago, I knew I had to buy this issue. It's a clever takeoff on the cover to Crisis on Infinite Earths #7, the issue where Supergirl dies. You probably know the cover, since it's appeared about a zillion times. It's the one where Superman, in tears, holds the dead body of Supergirl, while dozens of heroes stand, mourning, on the cliffs and hills behind him. Well, on this cover Firestorm in tears, holds the dead body of Firestorm, while dozens of other Firestorms stand, mourning, on the cliffs and hills behind him. Each Firestorm looks just a little different from the next. There's a lion-faced Firestorm and a Firestorm with a Superman "s" on his chest. There are Firestorms with puffy sleeves and others with no sleeves. The cover is pure geeky greatness.
