A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 287
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 finish our two-part look at a neat issue of Garth Ennis’ recent Dan Dare mini-series…
Okay, to recap, Dan Dare #3 (by Garth Ennis and Gary Erskine) has Dare and his friend Digby stranded on a colony planet with about 150 civilians and 50 or so marines. They are in a desert, facing a charging mass of about a hundred or so Torrs. Torrs are these demon-like creatures – it was a pain for Dare to kill ONE of them, and now they are being charged by hundreds of them!
The ending would be “the” moment, but damned if Ennis isn’t impressive as all get out all throughout. This is so his element.
