Wanted TPB: Firestorm, The Elemental War

Writer: John Ostrander
Artist: Tom Mandrake
Publisher: DC Comics (1989)
Firestorm, the Nuclear Man #90-93 and The Spectre #19-22

This four issue story arc I found interesting, because it took on the concept of the elements being personified in the DC-verse.

Fun Fact (clipped from Wikipedia): Naiad (Mai Miyazaki) is the elemental of water for the planet Earth. The Parliament of Waves, is a group made up of older Water Elementals. The five Elemental Parliaments (Trees, Waves, Stone, Flames, Vapors) were destroyed by a Spectre level being called The Word. Naiad shares the title of "Elemental" with Firestorm the elemental of (fire), Red Tornado the elemental of (air), and Swamp Thing the elemental of (plants).
