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 cool issue of Detective Comics spotlighting Harvey Bullock…
In Detective Comics #651 (written by Chuck Dixon and drawn by Graham Nolan), Harvey Bullock is “forced” to turn to Batman for help when he keeps getting death threats. He asks Batman to find out who it could be (and there are TONS of suspects). In the meantime, we get a nice spotlight on Bullock’s life – his pigsty of an apartment, his annoying landlord, his love of doughnuts, his distaste for Batman (and especially his distaste for asking Batman for help).
In any event, Batman thinks he has a good suspect…
I thought that this was well-handled all the way through – a “done in one” story rather than a “filler” issue.
