A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 274
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 a cool moment from Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly’s Local…
Each issue of Local takes us to a new location.
In Local #8, we’re in Chicago where our heroine, Megan, is working as a waitress in a restaurant where she’s having quickies with one of the cooks in the supply room. She’s sick of this situation and wants him to bring her to his home, which he has been avoiding. Well, when they’re there, she realizes why, because he lives a ridiculously man-child-esque existence with some slimy roommates. Megan can’t handle it and leaves him. Meanwhile, some well-to-do regular at the restaurant has been attempting to woo her, and finally, she lets herself go out with him (all the while she’s ducking calls from her erstwhile boyfriend). She has a date with the rich guy, and she admits to a friend that it’s nice to not be with someone she constantly feels she has to excuse herself for being with.
Then, she finally “spends the night” with the rich guy…
“The” moment is definitely the bit with her boyfriend at the end – Wood and Kelly absolutely NAIL it.
