SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
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 begin a two-part look at the Planetary/Batman: Night on Earth one-shot, by writer Warren Ellis and artist John Cassaday.
The gist of the story is that a superpowered fellow is pretty messed up (drugs and some childhood trauma), so when his universe re-writing powers kick in, well, it does not go well, and people are starting to die if they’re too close to him.
So Elijah Snow, Jakita Wagner and The Drummer go to Gotham City to investigate (All the history re-writing energy is seriously messing up the Drummer’s head).
Batman shows up, naturally, and he wants control over the suspect. He and Jakita fight, but soon, some history re-writing kicks in…
Awesomely handled all around.
I think “the” moment is probably the Female-Villain-Repellent Spray.
