    Fire Starters is essentially a slice of life showcasing intercultural relations between a fictional reserve and the small town it resides beside. When a local gas bar goes up in flames, two aboriginal teens are suspect by the police and blamed by the public because they were seen earlier with a flare gun in hand. Parental Note: Tobacco use is used for both the expected personal use as well as for more traditional offerings. Religious symbols are also seen throughout, but it's not a religious sto [...]

    'Fire Starters' by Jen Storm with art by Scott Henderson tells a good moral fable for younger readers. It works well in a graphic novel form.Ron and Ben live on the Agamiing Reserve. Their grandmother looks after them when their mother is away. When they find an old flare gun in their deceased uncle's tackle box, they decide to take it to the dump and shoot it off. When the gas bar is burned down, they are accused, but the real person who did it won't come forward.It's a story that feels like an [...]

    3.5 stars.Fire Starters has an interesting story, which feels tragically believable. It addresses racism, white privilege, etc. Despite its heavy topic, it has a relatively happy ending. It's worth the read. I liked the art (and for those who have seen my previous reviews of work by Scott B. Henderson, yes I liked it better with colour), which I thought suited the story.I will happily read anything else from Jen Storm if she puts out anything else. I definitely plan to continue reading books fro [...]

    My experience with Highwater Press is that they consistently publish great indigenous graphic novels and literature. In this case, Jen Storm’s Firestarter is expertly illustrated by Scott B Henderson. The story and the art merge into a well crafted tale of the struggle many indigenous youth face with racism as they manoeuvre through the justice system. I know not all police are racist but in this story the officers are quick to point to finger at the 2 native youth in question. Added to this i [...]

    This was an easy read - a really approachable format for talking about Racism and prejudice. I think the lesson about reconciliation is an important theme. I'm going to make my 13 year old son read this to return it to the library.

    Neat concept touching on important subject matter, but felt rushed and didn't go deep enough, end seemed to be missing important bits

    An authentic look into small town Canada.

    This showed promise. Two idiots borrow a flare gun, and two more rob the gas station store, so of course the first get accused when it burns down. And of course they're 'native' Americans. Great art work brightens the page, and while it can be a little wordy and repetitive at times the drama is fine, apart from the past couple of pages – I found the ending really quite weak. Character is strong, and I liked the odd non-diegetic things over the page (rubble hiding the fight, things photoshopped [...]
