Blatant Self-Promotion

Now that 9/11, and The Path to 9/11, are blissfully over:


FIRESTORM: THE NUCLEAR MAN #29 features Part Two of "In My Father's House." It starts with a big cyborg battle and proceeds to a scene that FIRESTORM fans have been waiting for since issue #1. (I hope, anyway.)

And yes, Jamal Igle and I are leaving FIRESTORM with issue #32. But we're going out with a big climactic storyline that should blow the doors off the roof. Or something.

You can read the first five pages of FIRESTORM #29 here.

For some background on the storyline, go here.

DC Comics' solicitation is here.

And finally: Two or three times a month, I send out an e-mail newsletter with news of current and upcoming projects -- similar to the above, but more detailed. If you'd like to sign up, just send me an email at stuartcomics@mindspring.com . I promise no spamming, no giving your address away, and no emails in the middle of the night saying, "I KNOW WHAT YOU DID."

Looks good, flatdaddy!

On that fourth page, it would be cool if Prof. Stein's imaginary floating head terminated in a ragged, gory stump instead of a smooth, eerie geometric shape.

Stuart Moore said...

Ah, true believer, it's all part of the plan. Keep reading!

(heh heh)

I continue to be curious as to why you named the mysterious girlfriend "Gehenna" -- I'm going to guess that it's related to her creation and history.

I was startled and amused because it's not exactly a common name choice, and because one of the ongoing projects here at Chez Ursus is Gehenna, which takes its title from the name of one of the female characters, Gehenna Lee. In my case, though, I admit that I pretty much grabbed the name out of the ether and backtracked to the historical and religious connections.

Ramble, ramble.

Appealing to your ego, I have been enjoying your take on Firestorm -- excellent work. Very sorry to see you moving on from it, but that just means more good stuff to check out in the future.

Stuart Moore said...

Thanks. I've always liked the sound of the word, too...I think I first encountered it as the title of a Barry Malzberg story. It fit into the "dead worlds" imagery I had going in my early FIRESTORMs -- see page 1 of issue #17, the issue with the character's first appearance. And, when mispronounced with a soft "G," it shortens nicely to "Gen" or "Jen."

A little more (but not much) on this in issue #30, next month.

Stuart Moore said...

Oops -- I meant issue #31. Though there is more on Gehenna herself next issue, too.

I have to say you have written the only Firestorm series I've ever taken an interest in. Sorry to see you go, but am looking forward to the conclusion of an enjoyable arc.

Will stick around for Dwayne McDuffie too. (Hope I spelled that right.) He rocks.
