Inferno City Firehouse takes you inside the lives of real Detroit firefighters – true stories fused with fiction into a breathtaking narrative! Firefighters come into strangers’ lives at their most desperate times. Doing their best to rescue, protect, and help in any way possible, but what happens to these strangers as they hand them over to the police or EMS?
It would be too heavy of a burden to follow up with all of the people they risk their lives for, day in and day out, but sometimes these strangers become important parts of their personal lives and their healing. — Signed by Author — With this book, we are fully dedicated to HELPING all who are struggling with PTSD and/or depression.

This story follows a group of Detroit firefighters as they go about their lives. The span of time the story takes place in is through a 10 year period, I would say. There’s a real in-depth look at these firefighters—everything from the downtime at the station to time with their families—and of course the people that they save while fighting fires.
The art for this book is pretty amazing. It’s done in a black and white style that looks like it’s not even inked. The people are super realistic-looking, which really connects you to the story and all of the things that the characters go through. And even though you’d think color would work best with all of the fire, I believe the black and white helps better set the mood of the story.
What I think really helps this book is it being based on actual events that happened to real-life firefighters. That touch of realism sets this apart from other comics that deal with similar themes. I also enjoyed that the series shines a light on the brave men and women who make such great sacrifices for the betterment of others. It’s inspiring and truly makes for a great read.
I give Inferno City Firehouse…
