Library Journal Review

First published in serialized form in Island magazine, this series launch from Christmas (Angel Catbird; Pisces), Bonvillain (Wayward; Doom Patrol), and Maher (From Under Mountains) creates a whole new world. After a short preamble explaining the creation myth, deities, and divergent cults, readers are introduced to Keegan and her boyfriend Griffin. Keegan is a new member of the Third Wave, a religious group that believes their Goddess is being held against her will and must be freed. In an attempt to earn the clan's trust, Keegan offers to lead the Third Wave to the deity and participate in their mission to release her. When the rescue goes terribly wrong, the Goddess ends up dead and Keegan's true identity as the 13th daughter of the fiery mountain is revealed. At times the narrative feels rushed and the action sequences confusing, but the breathless pacing serves the story line well. The artwork is spellbinding, with Christmas's characters and settings richly detailed and Bonvillain's coloring setting the tone and mood of each panel. Verdict Firebug introduces an exciting and fresh world that will leave fans of the genre wanting more.-E.W. Genovese, Andrew Bayne Memorial Lib., Pittsburgh © Copyright 2018.
