Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
The countdown continues with 1988’s ” “Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot”” from Christmas With the Superheroes #2 by Alan Brennert and Dick Giordano…
The story is a Deadman tale, showing how Deadman spends the holidays…
He tries to take a piece of other people’s holidays, but he realizes that that is pretty wrong of him, so he goes off by himself and decides to wallow in some self-pity…
Beautiful, just beautiful.
Talk about capturing the spirit of a character in just a few simple pages.
Wonderful work by Brennert, who we really ought to convince to write some more comic books. Forget those popular novels you write, Brennert! Why be content to have an acclaimed novel like your latest release, Palisades Park (read reviews of it here), when you could be writing comic books to please me?!?
And, naturally, the art by the late, great Giordano was strong, as always.
