A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 272

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!

Here is the first of the last two cool Casanova moments on the list!

Okay, Casanova #7, the last part of the first Casanova story arc. As with the other issues of this first arc, the art is by Gabriel Ba and the story is by Matt Fraction.

By the by, remember last issue when Casanova was with the folks on the isolated Coldheart Island? Well, he left his mother with them for her protection in that issue.

Anyhow, the set-up is that Casanova has finally decided to cut ties with Newman Xemo (evil head of the bad guy organization WASTE who brought Casanova to this universe from his own), who he has been working for as a double agent against the spy organization EMPIRE (Cass also has found out that Buck McShane, his father’s trusted adviser, was really working for Xemo.

But now, with McShane’s death, Casanova is cutting ties with Xemo and taking his sister, Zephyr, with him. Xemo is less than pleased…

What a nice ending for what was basically Casanova’s redemption!

That ending would be “the” ending.

Oh, in case you were curious, the crows are Casanova’s psionic signature (he has low-level psionic powers – in the earlier issues, spiders were his psionic signature, but he has now upgraded).


I’m getting the feeling that the character Fraction brought into the x-men, the scientist guy who uses two guns, and wears a long coat and hat and travels back in time to find his parents – is kind of a way for him to do this sort of thing in x-men.

That sounds likely, Matt.

Please stop. I’m begging you to stop with this stuff. Please get back to cool comic book moments! Again, I know I’m a crabby middle-aged man and I should focus on important things, like getting some work done, but I have really enjoyed this series up until the last few weeks. Can’t we get back to moments that were cool to a lot of people?

I, for one, am enjoying the varied comics being featured in this…feature…

So yeah. Whatever you think is cool is something I’d like to see, Brian.

Considering comics don’t get much cooler than Cassanova I don’t see what the issue is.

Oh show some cool moment where Hulk smashes something!!! That would be MUCH better.

I wasn’t even aware of Cassanova last week. Now I’m sponging up the first trade. How’s that for a ringing endorsement? Hell, I discovered Nextwave through AYoCCBM as well. I feel like I’ve been awaken from a giant mind-clouding sleep.

I find it funny that someone was moaning about less moments of stuff that usually gets reprinted in ‘best of’ trades anyway.

We haven’t even had a Cerebus moment. “Cerebus wee-wee’s in the sink!” is my nomination.

How about some Nexus/Judah/Badger moments from the Bowl Shaped World storyline?

We definitely need some Cowboy Wally Show moments, there’s far too many of them to not blip onto Cronin’s radar. It has a production of Hamlet in prison!
