"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
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!
I actually wasn’t planning featuring today’s moment any time soon, as I liked the subtly of the earlier moment in this issue better than the big dramatic moment later on, but someone reminded me of a later moment that I DID want to feature, and I sort of need to get this one out of the way for THAT one to work.
So, enjoy a sad trip by Spider-Man up a bridge, courtesy of Gerry Conway and Gil Kane…
When last we saw our hero, he realized that Norman Osborn was nuts again and was back to his old tricks as the Green Goblin. Spidey also realizes that his girlfriend, Gwen Stacy, has been kidnapped by Osborn, who is holding her on the George Washington Bridge.
You have to give Osborn credit – he WAS true to his word.
After a little tussle, the fight really begins
Wow, what’s “the” moment here? The snap or the big speech at the end?
I guess the snap, but the speech seems more significant in the context of the story itself – the snap just became bigger after the fact.
