I swore I already posted this, (must have messed up on the capcha) anyways

I just wanted to say that Firestorm #17 should be required reading for any aspiring comic writers. It's just about the perfect issue in my mind. In that one book we have a reference to past events, separate subplots for both hero and civilian identities and one heck of a cliff hanger, all with out feeling forced. The book swings from a little goofy, to sincere to terrifying effortlessly. It was probably one of my favorite issues of the New 52, honestly. Just marvelous stuff, seriously. I honestly wish I hadn't read it before Aquaman #17 (which felt like a backup to me.) If anyone hasn't read this issue pick it up NOW.

As The League, it was a pretty solid issue, but I still take a bit of offense to breaking up Aurthur and Mera, especially when it wasn't in there own book. Their relationship is really what hooked me on the series. I hope this won't last long.
