Legends of Tomorrow # 1
Firestorm was quite fun. I think Conway’s strength is in how he handles his cast and their relationships and I think fans of the characters will be pretty happy with how this has turned out.
The art is perfectly fine, quite generic looking but it services the story perfectly.
I don’t think this is going to attract much attention, but what it does it does solidly.
Metamorpho was a chore. Basically Rex Mason gets powers then imprisoned. It’s a 2 page story somehow dragged into 20 and it’s not in the least bit engaging.
Sugar & Spike I’m not sure what that was. I really like Giffen but that was bizarre.
Metal Men like firestorm is not earth shattering, it is really solid though. I wasn’t sure Wein was the right choice for this but, like Swamp Thing, this is really well written with an old school vibe that doesn’t equate to being old fashioned or turgid.
It flows gracefully, a lot of that is down to Yildray Cinar’s economic lines.
I really enjoyed this, and I want to read more - the problem is I’m not sure I want to pay £5.49 for this and Firestorm which id quite like to see more of too.
Again, like I said when referring to his recent Swamp Thing work, I hope Wein has a book in the Rebirth line, I’ll definitely be picking it up.
