A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 96

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!

Here’s the second of five cool moments from Mark Waid and Ron Garney’s Captain America run!

Enjoy!

These are the first few pages from Captain America #445, which is where Waid and Garney actually had Cap return (Cap’s body was breaking down due to the Super Soldier Serum expiring, as it was never intended to be working over fifty years later. A cure was found, but the Red Skull stole it – he then has a bunch of goons steal Cap’s near-death body and put him into cyrogenics while they pumped Cap’s body with the cure) – I absolutely love three things about this scene in particular…

1. The drama building up to double-page spread

2. The use of cryogenics as a throwback to Cap’s Silver Age return (classic!)

and, of course,

3. How awesome Ron Garney draws the double-page spread (which is definitely THE moment here).
