A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 202
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 and tomorrow, we’ll look at moments from Suicide Squad #36.
To set the scene, Lashina, the head of the Female Furies, has been on the Suicide Squad for a year or so (she lost her memory). Once she regained her memory, she decided to go back to Apokolips to regain her place as the leader of the group – and she brought along (via kidnapping) the most powerful members of the Squad and Big Barda to help her as cannon fodder in her quest to get her position back.
The Squad did not fare exactly well against Darkseid’s minions, as seen her when Kanto takes down Count Vertigo…
Well, at the end of Suicide Squad #35, Lashina has her job back and she’s asked what to do with the Squad, and she says to kill them.
This leads to a great sequence courtesy of the issue’s writers, John Ostrander and Kim Yale, and some nice art from John K. Snyder and Geof Isherwood…
“The” moment for me is Vertigo’s speech, but the “impressed” exchange is great, too.
