This comics anthology caught my eye on the new shelf at the library, and I'm glad I checked it out. A collection of short graphic stories by creators of color -- it's united by two themes. One, obviously, is fire. The other is that the entire book is printed in black, white, and red, giving visual consistency as well.

In any anthology, there are bound be to favorites and not-so-favorites. Happily, there were no stinkers here. Some didn't feel entirely complete, but all had interesting aspects. I liked the joyful childish exuberance of "Too Hot to Be Cool," by Maddi Gonzalez, loved the art in "Cactus Flower" by Sara DuVall, was intrigued by "Pulse" by Der-Shing Helmer, would love to see more from Melanie Ujimori, who created "Firestorm," by my favorites were probably "Preta," created by Chloe Chan, a tale about a future with cybernetic upgrades and the pressures people feel among all the new choices, "Breath, Plucked from Heaven," by Shivana Sookdeo, a quiet little tale about wisdom, endings, and goodbyes, and "A Burner of Sins," written by J.Y. Yang, a story about magic, guilt, memory, and the damage done when loved ones reject someone's transgender identity.

I've just learned this team is doing an EARTH anthology next. I can't wait to read it! ( )
