A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 144

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 take a look at an early cool scene from Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca’s Street Angel!

Enjoy!

To set the scene up, Doctor Pangea has built a machine that can bring all of the continents on Earth back together. He has also kidnapped the Mayor’s daughter. The Mayor enlists the help of Jesse Sanchez, also known as Street Angel, who is armed only with her phat skateboarding skills, martial artistry and tricked out deck.

She kills a bunch of ninjas (the lackey of choice for villains like Dr. Pangea – although she lost a shoe amongst all the killing) and finds her way to his secret hideout, where coolness happens…

“The” moment for me is the “she wiped out all the ninjas in the time you took to turn the page” bit.

Such a great debut by Rugg and Marcua. Rugg has such a creative sense of layout and storytelling, and the writing by both guys is top-rate.

Street Angel is awesome.

Street Angel is awesome, man.

That book was a total joy to read.

“Aegnap Auto Body?” The good doctor’s not very good at coming up with aliases, is he?

Never heard of this but, whoa, that was cool.

Yeah, the page-turn was probably my favorite bit in the whole series.

And Sebastian, if you’ve got anything you’d be willing to swap for it, I’d be happy to send you my copy of STREET ANGEL. Look me up on http://www.sequentialswap.com under “Chris Bloom”.

(I hope this is allowed on these forums. If not, I’m sorry, Brian!)

No matter how much we pimp Street Angel on this site, there’s still people that haven’t heard of it. Tsk, tsk.

@Bill Reed
Sorry! I’ve only been reading this site for a few months.

@chroom
I checked it out, but I don’t know if I have any trades you’d want
:-/ Neat site, though.

I love how the lair’s layout includes a dining hall and washrooms. :)

Stuff like this makes me really wish I lived within ten miles of a comic shop. Definitely looks like a cool book.

This is why the Lord invented the interweb.

“No dear read, you didn’t skip a page. Street Angel wiped out all of Dr. Pangea’s hench-ninja in the time it took you to turn this page. Also, she developed rapid-onset hydrocephalus.”

Street Angel was really good. It’s funny, I just bought a copy over the weekend after reading it awhile back at the library. Great stuff.

Sebastian — It never hurts to ask. I like all kinds of things!

Eldric IV — You’d have a big head too, if you’d just killed eleventy-five ninjas that quickly. Testify, big-head Jesse!

That is so cool.

@Chris.

Definitely. Ill give it a shot one day.

“who is armed only with her phat skateboarding skills, martial artistry and tricked out deck.”

This almost made me skip this entry. Glad i didn’t, it looks like lots of fun. Will have to check it out.

Really cool. Loved the ‘Pop!’ sound effect.
