The Human Target #7

After a six-month hiatus, The Human Target picks up with Christopher Chance halfway through his remaining days on Earth after drinking the poison meant for Lex Luthor. Issue #7 offers a chance for Chance and Fire to test each other while dancing around the question of whether or not Fire is our would-be murderer. The back-and-forth is fun, and will eventually lead somewhere Chance doesn't expect.

First at a nightclub, and later at an amusement park, the pair play and verbally spar with Chance trying to determine if she is his killer and Fire judging the man who has taken up with his best friend. While there is certainly some sexual tension, turns out the dying man only has eyes for one super-hero at present, leading to an admission and a new subject coming in focus with five issues remaining.
