Great Moments in Comic Book History, Volume Four
In the imaginary world where comics bloggers are constantly being hounded by fans searching for truth, I'm often asked what the single greatest panel in comic book history is.
It's a tough question: There's just so much to choose from that even attempting to narrow it down to one panel is as close to impossible as you're likely to find. There's Skurge holding the bridge to Hel, or Rorschach taking on an entire prison, or the Punisher socking a polar bear, or OMAC punching his way into the city of the super-rich. Heck, there's pretty much every splash page Jack Kirby drew during the '70s. And, of course, there's my personal favorite, Batman, the car battery, and the unluckiest thug of 1988.
Still, as much as I like the comics of the past twenty years, if we'd decided to go ahead and stop making 'em back in 1987, there's a part of me that really wouldn't have a problem with that. Why?
