A Year of Cool Comics – Day 234

by  in Comic News Comment

Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the comics posted so far!

Today we look at the classic (well, in my mind) third issue of Impulse by Mark Waid, Humberto Ramos and Wayne Faucher!

Enjoy!

Okay, in this issue, Bart Allen (the speedster hero from the future) begins his first day of school. His guardian, fellow super-fast hero, Max Mercury, gives him one “goal” for the day…


How does Bart do? Well, let’s just say that the title of the tale, ” How to Win Friends and Influence People,” is meant as a joke…

From his first moment on campus…




After a kid sees Bart skip out on a class research assignment (Bart is off to France to stop some bad guys), he decides to rat him out…




The set-up continues…



As you might imagine, Waid spends the majority of the issue in this fashion, and it leads to a delirious finale when all of Bart’s enemies come together in one massive…well…that would be spoiling it, wouldn’t it? Go pick up this issue! It has great Ramos/Faucher artwork, a hilarious and well-orchestrated story by Mark Waid and, well, isn’t that enough?
