picWith DC's Relaunch comes an all new creative team to take on the character of Firestorm!

Earlier, details were released on the new The Fury Of Firestorm #1 including:

Welcome to a major new vision of the Nuclear Man as writers Ethan Van Sciver and Gail Simone team up with artist Yildiray Cinar to deliver THE FURY OF FIRESTORM #1. Jason Rusch and Ronnie Raymond are two high school students, worlds apart – and now they’re drawn into a conspiracy of super science that bonds them forever in a way they can’t explain or control. The cover to issue #1 is by Ethan Van Sciver.

Gail Simone has taken to twitter to reveal her thoughts on the new project as she states Firestorm is going to be an A-lister. She doesn't sound too excited, does she?! Looking forward to this one.

All I'm going to say is, honest to god, this is one of the most amazing books I've ever worked on in any capacity.

You guys are going to hear a lot of hype in the coming days, I know, and I'm sorry to add to that, but...this book is INSANE.

The art for Fury of Firestorm is by Yildiray Cinar, @ycinar here on Twitter. And he is demolishing it. He is KILLING on it.

I can't say any more. But as Ethan was one of the great minds behind some of the biggest monster hits in comics...YOU WANT THIS BOOK.

I am sorry for blurting this stuff out, but we haven't been able to say a word, as page after page of beautiful art came in.

That's all I can say. Forget anything you ever thought about Firestorm being a b-list character. You will not believe this thing.

For those who didn't know, Firestorm was created by the great @gerryconway and awesome Al Milgrom. One of the coolest DC characters ever.

I apologize again for the gush. But holy CRAP there is cool stuff coming. My brain hurts thinking about it!

I gotta get off Twitter before I explode. Guys, AMAZING comics are coming. Amazing stories, amazing art. I cannot WAIT.
