"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
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 that is undershadowed by the fact that it appears directly following one of the most famous moments in comic book history…
We all know about Spider-Man lifting the machinery in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #33.
However, that was just the first (albeit coolest) obstacle Spider-Man had to face. He was still stuck in a room where the river above was about to flood in AND if he escaped the room was surrounded by a bunch of guards.
So Steve Ditko supplied a brilliant sequence of pages showing Spider-Man getting out of it – Stan Lee’s dialogue dampens the impressiveness of this sequence a bit (although there are parts of it where you need the thought balloons), but it’s still a classic!
Strong, strong work.
