The Weekend Comics Chat Open Thread - The Very Little Margin For Error In This Job Edition



Soooo... what did you read this week?


I read MELTDOWN #1 (of 2) from Image Comics, with story by DAVID SCHWARTZ, and art by SEAN WANG, with a cover by CHRIS BACHALO. This is the story of the super-hero Flare, who is breaking down physically and emotionally, and his desire to be a hero tempered by his failures in life... This is a great book, and I can't wait to see how it ends.

As the ad for MELTDOWN says: "A hero on the verge of burning out. Literally." Click HERE for more info.

So what's on your stack?

(PS: Next week's Wednesday shipment includes lots of CIVIL WAR goodness, like CIVIL WAR FRONT LINE #9, CIVIL WAR WAR CRIMES ONE SHOT, FANTASTIC FOUR #541, IRON MAN #14, IRON MAN CAPTAIN AMERICA CASUALTIES OF WAR ONE SHOT, and NEW AVENGERS ILLUMINATI #1.)

*whew*
