Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
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 look at a cool moment from the first “season” of Planetary…
In Planetary #7 (by Warren Ellis and John Cassaday), the Planetary gang attend the funeral of John Carter (a stand-in for John Constantine), where Ellis gets to nicely wax poetic about the British heroes of the 1980s.
Then it turns out that Carter might NOT be dead, which displeases the stand-in for Marvelman, who is quite upset at what the 80s did to superheroes like himself…
So many good moments here, but I suppose “the” moment is either Marvelman’s pleading (that any number of other superheroes I am sure have thought over the years) that if you don’t want to write superhero stories, then don’t – just leave us alone!
That or John Carter “moving on” to become Spider Jerusalem.
One of those two. What do you folks think?
