A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 121
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 continue our look at what is most likely the greatest Daredevil story ever told, Born Again, by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli. It might last longer than a week, as there are a lot of cool moments, and they just keep coming with greater frequency as the series continues its slow build towards the ending.
Daredevil #232 opens with a cool reunion of Karen and Matt, and ends with the moment you’ll see tomorrow, but for today, I’m going to show a brilliant piece of random violence by Miller and Mazzuccheli that is striking in its brutality and its suddenness.
Ben Urich has enlisted Matt Murdock’s ex-girlfriend (and Foggy’s current girlfriend) Glorianna O’Breen to do some photography of his interview of the Kingpin enforcer who tried to kill him (and DID kill the crooked cop who framed Matt Murdock).
Then this happened…
Mazzucchelli really out-does himself on this sequence, as he nails the facial features of everyone so well that he adds such a great vitality to the scene that it makes everything in it that much more brutal.
It’s really wonderfully done.
