"Playing on the ideas of legacies and what makes a superhero, Mike Luoma has plotted a story that has to do fifty things at once and convey it all subtly... a surprisingly well-rounded comic-book... " -  (review of RED HOT #1) 
”... a good take on the "legacy" hero... ...has a really great twist that makes the book a little bit more readable than the usual young-hero-proving-himself fare." – BlogThis, (review of RED HOT #1)
