Frantic as a cardiograph scratching out the lines, Day 154: Wonderworld Comics #7

Every day this year, I will be examining the first pages of random comics. This month I will be doing theme weeks, with each week devoted to comics from one decade.

Of course, that’s partially because I would have much rather seen Frank Miller do a Spirit GN than a Spirit movie, but that’s me. And I do already have the storyboards for Sin City and 300, so there’s some completist appeal too.
