    Altogether, Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville #6 is a perfect conclusion to an all-around perfect miniseries. I can’t wait to see what inspires them next and I hope they continue making waves with their upcoming projects.

    Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville #6 fantastically concludes one of the most unique series to come out of DC’s current publishing line.

    From the first issue, Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville has been probably the most unique series DC Comics has published in a long time and the finale holds to that. Bea and Tora find themselves dealing with Rocky/Kooey Kooey Kooey while Martha Kent ends up having her own battle of sorts with Crave and it all comes together in a way that shows how both Fire and Ice have grown from their time in Smallville as well as gives nearly all of the characters interesting purpose. At the heart of what makes this issue so strong is how individual the personalities are – and that is especially true for Martha, who gets to shine and be very much her own person outside of just being Superman's mom. The book is a bit silly, but also really fun and heartfelt. It's a blast throughout and hopefully we'll get more adventures from these two.

    I’m so sad to see this book end, but so glad that DC let it see the light of day. We need more minis like this as part of larger, publisher-wide narratives. Hopefully we get to see Fire & Ice on some fun adventures again soon!

    This issue wraps up this thoroughly strange series with a high-stakes showdown in Smallville. As one friend of the duo is possessed by the sentient spirit of Kooey Kooey Kooey, another ancient villain with a grudge against Tora has descended on Smallville and begins targeting the residents—including Martha Kent. Surprisingly, Superman’s mom might be the most heroic character in this issue—shepherding a possessed child to safety while trying to handle things without calling her son. Things are probably a little too chaotic this issue—several different threats and about twenty different characters—and that leaves us with a slightly rushed ending, but there’s no question that this series was trying to do something new with the characters who haven’t been used much since the last JLI series. The all-star here is definitely Bustos’ distinctly Kevin Maguire-influenced art.

    Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville #6 ends the ill-conceived mini-series the way it started - badly. Starer's pitch and execution are fully terrible, several plot points make no sense, and the finale only partly resolves the myriad of conflicts, but not the most important one.
