A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 141

by  in Comic News Comment

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 take a look at a great moment from early in Mark Waid’s run on Flash!

Enjoy!

Flash #73, by Mark Waid and Greg Larocque, opens with Wally West spending his first Christmas with his girlfriend, Linda Park. They’re spending it with Jay and Joan Garrick.

Wally and Jay talk about Christmas…




This leads into a cute story that involves Wally and Jay helping this lady deliver her baby while getting her husband to her safely (her husband is a department store Santa who gets involved with the wrong crowd in an attempt to get some money for his new family – the Flashes stop the bad guys and get the husband to the wife as she gives birth in a church – cute but still a good story).

Now we have the epilogue…




Great ending, and definitely “the” moment, although Linda’s Christmas present is pretty darn sweet, as well!

This would begin a great time in the Flash comic, possibly the best couple of years the book has seen in the past forty years.
