What’s up Melt-heads?.. Meltdowners?.. The Dead Melt-Men?… Oh well we’ll come up with that nickname sooner or later, but until that time, check out this quick preview of Stan “The Man” Lee’s latest. (I still have several of his “Superhuman’s” currently on my dvr. For a guy his age he certainly gets around.) “The Traveler” is out of Stan’s own shingle “POW! Entertainment” in conjunction with “Boom! Studios.” (What’s up with the exclamation fetish?) Scroll down and click on the thumbnails below for larger images of the first six pages of Stan Lee’s ” The Traveler” written by Mark Waid with interiors by Chad Hardin, along with several cover art examples. I personally dig the first one – what do you guys/gals think?
