You all know my friend, Shag, right? He of Firestorm Fan and Once Upon a Geek, Shag, suggested to run a mini crossover of sorts between Firestorm Fan, and the Power of the Atom - a blog that frequently features Captain Atom, THE Atom, and even Red Tornado on occassion.
Shag got it all started covering the first segment of the "Elemental War." Be sure to check out his coverage there as he shares his thoughts about the Naiad and Firestorm splash pages (get it? Yeah, it's a good pun, but it's Shag's not mine) that get the story to a boiling point (OK, that one is mine).
That said, here's some pages from when Red Tornado enters the fray. Images are brought to you courtesy of Shag.
"I have heard a voice in the wind, I have felt a wound upon the Earth! Whoever or whatever thing you be, if you harm the planet you must answer to the Red Tornado!"
Tom Mandrake was really given a chance to shine during this storyline, and he took full advantage of it. Nansi Hoolahan stepped up to the plate and tried to drop some high-class ethereal colors on the art. Unfortunately, limits of technology kept the book from being as amazing as today's coloring would have enabled it to be. Imagine, if you can, Naiad colored with ripples and sea foam patterns. This certainly would have been a different looking book.
