Meet author David Schwartz and artist Sean Wang of MELTDOWN (the comic book) at Meltdown (the retail establishment)!
Join us at Meltdown’s Hollywood location on Wednesday, December 20 for a book signing by the creators of MELTDOWN, the new prestige format mini-series from Image. MELTDOWN chronicles the last days of The Flare, a flame-powered hero whose metahuman ability is consuming him from within.
MELTDOWN is a superhero book which draws creative inspiration from the Claremont/Byrne run on UNCANNY X-MEN and the Wolfman/Perez run on NEW TEEN TITANS. Author David Schwartz hopes to evoke familiar strengths in MELTDOWN as he mentions in a recent Comicon.com interview.
“I always felt that those books became so popular because they concentrated as much (if not more) on developing characters as they did on developing storylines. The reason we became hooked is because we truly cared about these characters, cared what happened to them and I really wanted to try and bring that same level of depth and characterization to my work on MELTDOWN.”
Issue One of the two issue mini-series has already arrived on bookshelves to great acclaim. Newsarama’s review has high praise for this new work. “Not since Kurt Busiek’s ASTRO CITY has a comic brought so much impact into the comic book world. The unyielding power of MELTDOWN leaves the reader thirsting for more…an early Christmas present for comic fans worldwide.”
Keep an eye on our website as to when the party starts and we’ll see you in the store!
