The Blue Flame digs deeper into the Tribunal Consensus as he weighs the decision of defending all of humanity before them… but wait, shooting victim Sam Brausam is in a coma in Milwaukee, and his estranged sister doesn’t know if he’ll wake up.”

This series is phenomenal. In just two issues, I’m absolutely blown away. The depth of the storytelling is the kind that lives on forever – the sort that, if enough readers get their hands on it, could become a classic.

Issue two further explores the things in the first issue that left many of us with our jaws on the floor. This feels like a very introspective book for not just Sam, but for all of us. Look at yourself, humanity – how can you be better?

The art is beautiful. The juxtaposition between the present moment on earth, and what Sam is doing for the defense of humanity are both so incredibly done. It’s very clear when/where we are, without having to tell us when a scene changes. The colors are stunning. The lettering is fantastic.

Do not miss The Blue Flame, which is sure to be a modern masterpiece. Issue two is out this week.
