Review: Billy The Pyro #1

Billy the Pyro is a not-so-normal coming of age story. Having to deal with his abusive and troubled past, Billy tries to just get by any way he can. That’s all about to change though as Billy soon finds out that he has been genetically altered by a government research institute called GAPRI (Genetic Alteration and Pyrokinesis Research Institute). Now able to produce and control fire, Billy teams up with GAPRI to help fight and protect those from past experiments gone wrong.




As a number #1 this hits all the right notes to me. Character moments, thoughts, family and mystery to keep you hooked for #2. This is a nice ‘origin’ story with an idea on the character and then at the end an idea on the powers. If you don’t get an idea on the powers then I’m not going to tell you!

The art is clean and crisp with some really nice colouring to go with it. Easy to read, and easy on the eye which I enjoy.

Billy’s character is well defined, with an idea on his feelings on all manner of things, as well as his reactions to those around him.

I really like the look of this and would recommend it to anyone looking for a new character to get behind. The synopsis has some good legs and worth reading!
