A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 243

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 sort of “origin” of Darwyn Cooke as an artist…

Here it is, from Solo #5, written and drawn by Darwyn Cooke…

“The” moment is the very end of the piece, when the “End” there could easily be “Beginning.”

Really strong work by Cooke.


It just goes to show that no matter how what path we envision for our kids they will follow their own way. I have a five year old and a four year old and their personalities are becoming more forceful every day. Every experience they have is another brick in the life they will lead. And as a parent you will never know when that seminal moment strikes…but they will.

the momement showed that kids will always be the true master of their destinies no matter what path they are guided down.

And thus sports lost yet another person who could defeat Tiger Woods. ;)

Awesome stuff. You’re forcing me to dig out that issue of Solo!

Wow. What an incredible little story.

I really wish I had got every Solo. I only got the Tim Sale issue, and now I have to try track down the others.

When will we get a collected Solo? I NEED IT WITH MY SOUL.

I so need to dig out the 3-4 issues of Solo that I bought and re-read them.

I think the moment is when he abandoned the golf club.

Damn. Darwyn Cooke is just a stone-cold master of the medium.

I can’t get over the fact that this is an “old-timey neighborhood” yet Cooke’s father refers to a clearly older man as Jack and that man refers back to him as Mr. Cooke.

Old-timey my foot.

While it is very nice, I’m not sure it would qualify as a ‘moment’…I’m not saying I didn’t like it. I guess we could call it a “quiet moment”, or something…

I agree with Mary Warner. The moment is when the boy abandons the golf clubs in favor of the paints.

[…] Cooke did a piece about his origin story for the SOLO anthology that has been posted online. […]
