A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 182

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 look at a neat Batman moment from Grant Morrison that was a bit of a precursor to his more recent Batman run.


In JLA Classified #1, by Grant Morrison and Ed McGuinness, Morrison lays the ground work not just for his Seven Soldiers crossover but also for his run on Batman when the Justice League are captured into a different universe and the villainous Ne-Bu-Loh has struck a deal with Gorllia Grodd. Things are bad for the Ultra-Marines, and it is up to the Knight (the British Batman)’s partner, the Squire, to contact Batman for help…

He then shows up just as she is being shot down by a gorilla in a laser jet plane, and this allows Batman to now tell her his plan…

Great cliffhanger.

As to “the” moment, there are a lot of them, but I think the revelation of the “Sci-Fi Closet” is “the” moment for this scene.
