A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 269
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!
Let’s take more than one day examining the coolness of Casanova…
To set the scene, Casanova Quinn is a thief whose sister and father worked for a SHIELD-like organization called EMPIRE After his sister is killed, Casanova finds himself (through various situations) thrust into an alternate dimension where he goes to work for an enemy of EMPIRE as a double agent secretly working for WASTE, the rival organization.
So here we see Quinn basically rehash the opening scene of issue #1 (the issue, by the way, was written by Matt Fraction and drawn by Gabriel Ba), only having already lived this moment in his home dimension – the first time around he was there as a thief, chased by EMPIRE – now he is here as a good guy, chased by the bad guys (specifically a bad guy he had recently encountered in his home dimension, so he knows a lot about)…
“The” moment for me is the speech at the end.
But man, this is why I took so long to feature Casanova (which is one of the coolest comics alive). It’s so freakin’ complicated, it’s hard to find ONE cool moment, as they’re so layered together, ya know?
