A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 26
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at another cool moment from Paul Jenkins’ Spider-Man run (and no, not any of the moments you’re likely expecting)…
This issue, like a lot of Paul Jenkins’ issues of Peter Parker: Spider-Man, was focused on an outsider to the Spider-Man mythos. In this instance, Jenkins (and guest artist Staz Johnson) turns his attention to Billy Fender, a low-life private investigator for a crooked insurance company. Fender’s main job is to find out if people are committing insurance fraud, but along the way, Billy gets obsessed with the idea of finding out who Spider-Man really is.
He is obsessed, and finally, at the end, he has figured it all out!
He quits his job and heads over to the Daily Bugle to get his payday. He decides to take his information directly to J. Jonah Jameson himself.
And that leads us to the full page splash that makes up the finale of this issue, and the cool comic book moment of the day…
Hilariously awesome, especially the way Jenkins slowly builds up to this moment all throughout the issue.
