"...a thought-provoking saga that transcends the usual genre clichés." -- Publishers Weekly “The Blue Flame …is a triumph” -- SYFY Wire "A perfect 10." -- Comics Bookcase “…one of the most thought-provoking stories in comics all year.” – SYFY Wire "...a vital modern superhero story." -- Comicbook.com “With a rich, multifaceted narrative (it touches on, among other reference points, Birdman and Strange Adventures), the book is a gripping exploration of why people become heroes, and what that ultimately means in every sense (logistical, emotional, philosophical, etc.)” – AIPT “…an intriguing and rich read…” – Comics Bookcase
“The Blue Flame … is a supremely confident, deliberate, and interesting comic. Every element of craft in this book is not only well-done but deployed in a way that serves a greater unified narrative, one that gets at the heart of the intersection of the fantastic and the tragic. It’s brilliant work. 10/10.” – Comics Bookcase “If you like brilliant art and clever storytelling this is one to pick up.” – Comic Watch “The Blue Flame … presents a crisscrossing narrative that pays homage to Silver Age comics and sci-fi serials, setting up a mystery that crosses time and space. Comic fans old and new should give this title a read, as it presents classic tropes in a fresh new way. [It] has also raised a set of questions that will keep readers … hooked.” – But Why Tho? “… a compelling narrative …” -- Gate Crashers
