Rising Stars, Vol. 3: Fire And Ash (2005) J. Michael Straczynski, Keu Cha, Ken Lashley, Christian Zanier, Jason Gorder, John Livesay, Edwin Rosell, David Wohl, Dennis Heisler, Dreamer Design, Robin Spehar, Liquid!, Matt Nelson, John Starr, Tyson Wengler

And the story ends.

We see the culmination of the paranoia and fear that those in power have of the Specials, but also the damage that the specials have suffered over the course of time. Jason’s story is perhaps the hardest, since he had so little time when he wasn’t being controlled, his ending is all the sadder. Not that any of the endings here are happy. Not really.

That’s not to say there isn’t a happy ending, because there is, it’s just not your traditional happy ending.

But this story remains one I love, despite everything, because even as we see the damage that might come from the discovery of special powers, there is still a great deal of hope for humanity here.

And that’s something that’s badly needed anymore.
