Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we take a look at an acclaimed one-off issue of Flash by Williams Messner-Loebs and Greg LaRocque – “Freefall”!
The issue, Flash #54, opens with Wally taking down a generic looking supervillain…
Two important bits set up here – 1. “Nobody dies. It’s a rule” and 2. The whole “Flash can run against gravity” deal.
Wally boards a plane and befriends a waitress…
The villain’s friends try to spring him. Wally stops them, but in the process, a hole is torn in the plane…
this leads to…
How brilliant is that?
Here is a glimpse of Wally dealing with the woman while in the sky…
That’s a glimpse of what the rest of the issue is like – Wally and the waitress in the sky while Wally tries to keep them both from dying.
After all, “Nobody dies. It’s a rule.”
It’s a brilliant little issue with strong artwork by Larcoque.
Well worth picking up – I’m sure you can find it in a discount bin on on eBay pretty easily!
