The good thing about this issue is that there's a clear focus on two of the storylines this book has started, and by focusing on just those two, it provides much more room for exploration of these storylines, and to progress through them. That being said, however, I personally didn't find it all that interesting, although I did appreciate the pared down focus, I just wish it had been interesting and well-written. I have, for the most part, enjoyed the Firestorm part of the storyline, but I really couldn't have cared for it less here, as we see more of the storyline, as the Black Lantern Firestorm menaces Ronnie and Jason, and also takes two hostages with close connections to each of them. But what happens from there, although I guess potentially interesting, just didn't do anything for me. This title, for me, has not really lived up to its title, and although it'll have some great moments of storytelling, I don't find them to be nearly consistent enough.
