    Hopefully, people will take heed when I say that this is a must buy once this series hits the comic stands. You cant ask for more from a 48 page super-hero comic, even though you will feel kinda bummed about Cals situation at the end of the issue. But when you think about it, being depressed about Cal is a great thing. It means that Schwartz and Wang have made us care about a character we didnt know 48 pages ago, and for a super-hero comic in this day and age, that is a tremendous achievement. Read Full Review

    In the opening scenes, Cal's special nature is described as an illness, and though he later sees his powers as a curse, he realizes he's a superhuman figure, not a patient. But it turns out he was wrong and that everyone else was right. I'm reminded a little of Phenomenon, a film starring John Travolta. Though his special abilities are brought on by an illness as well, he sees them as a blessing, as a means to transform his life from something ordinary into a dream come true. In Meltdown, Cal's story is the opposite. He longs for the ordinary, and in the absence of that, he longs for purpose. There's none to be found, and the tragedy makes for an engaging read.
