Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
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 cute Darwyn Cooke issue of Spider-Man Tangled Web, written AND drawn by Mr. Cooke.
The basic gist of Spider-Man: Tangled Web was, I believe, having out of continuity Spider-Man stories, so here in Spider-Man: Tangled Web #11, it is modern day but Peter Parker is single (think of it as a precursor to Brand New Day – I don’t think there’s any doubt that Darwyn Cooke is down with Peter being single now).
In any event, it is Valentine’s Day, and two different Daily Bugle employees are meeting Peter Parker for a date (but Peter is lying in an alley recovering from a fight with the Vulture)…
Flash Thompson shows them to Peter’s apartment building, which Peter (who is in rough shape from the fight with the Vulture and also being left out in the cold passed out for awhile) is headed towards, after bartering for a change of clothes from a homeless man.
“The” moment for me, if this is allowed, is the two fantasies of the women involved – if you can’t have a “moment” be two things, then I supposed the second fantasy, where Cooke changes up his style beautifully, would be it.
