A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 158

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 a spooky scene from Grant Morrison’s Seven Soldiers!


In Klarion #3, Klarion ends up in the Big City, working for the mysterious Melmoth, who has a gang of adolescents known as the Deviants that Klarion ends up working with. When a member of the Deviants turns 16, they “graduate” to Team Red. The head of the Deviants is Billy Beezer, who is about to turn 16. Billy does not like Klarion and they tussle, but finally, Billy figures, “Screw it,” he’ll turn 16 and join Team Red with his friend and idol, Goldenboy, who turned 16 last year and graduated to Team Red.

The following sequence, by Grant Morrison and Frazer Irving, is brilliantly spooky…


“The” moment for me is when Goldenboy drags Beezer in.

“Erdel”, for those not too familiar with DC, is the scientist who brought Martian Manhunter to Earth. I always thought that was a cool reference. Melmoth was a real piece of work.

What a fascinating choice for “the turning point in Mark Waid’s ‘The Return of Barry Allen’ storyline from Flash”!

The art by Frazier Irving was really creepy looking.

Does anyone know when the remaining issues of GUTSVILLE coming out?

Is there any point to this?:

“Today, we look at the turning point in Mark Waid’s “The Return of Barry Allen” storyline from Flash.”

I assume the Flash moment is still in the process of coming back from the future…?

Yeah I am still waiting for the return of ‘The Return of Barry Allen’. LOL

that moment was creepy and cool as billy learned a price had to be paid for making certain deals. love the look of fear when billy is dragged through even though though klarion was one of dc most creepy characters

“Shall I tell you the hour and date of your death?” Awesome.

I am very glad Frazer Irving is drawing the third arc of Batman & Robin.

Frazer Irving sure loves his Magentas…

Loved this arc of Seven Soldiers!

The moment for me is oddly enough the Erdel reference.

It was a time when J’onn was being underused and underplayed, and seeing his history woven into a bigger tapestry like this was just really interesting for some reason.

So many cool moments here … the kids standing over the fallen Billy; “Shall I tell you ..”; Billy’s wakefulness; “A man needs a job,”; “I kept a spade waiting for you” …

KLARION was my favorite of the 7S books, and while Morrison wrote the bejesus out of it, Irving’s art really made it for me. Dang, Brian, now I want to reread the whole thing again!

I’m with Bill: “Shall I tell you the hour and date of your death?” is a fantastic moment. That’s be the one for me.

Klarion was my second favorite of the 7 Soldiers minis, after Frankenstein.

Really nice looking art from Frazer Irving, but whoever did the colors deserves credit also. Who did it?
