A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 59
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!
In honor of our friend, AERose, we conclude our special “Moments from Uncanny X-Men” theme week!
The last day of this theme week will be the last issue of Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s Uncanny X-Men run!
Uncanny X-Men #143 follows Kitty Pryde as she is stuck by herself in the X-Mansion when a powerful demon attacks, in an homage to the film, Alien.
The moment where the demon shows up is quite striking by John Byrne…
After getting away from the Demon, Kitty tries various ideas until finally she comes up with one that works….
How awesome is that hand coming out of the flames?
This leads to a happy ending and the great final touch, as we re-visit what happened to the demon’s arm…
An excellent issue of Uncanny X-Men and a fine farewell to a great pairing on the book.
I’d pick the moment where the monster gets fried by the engines as THE moment, if I had to choose.
