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 we meet Johnny Hiro!!!
In Fred Chao's Johnny Hiro #1, we basically get to see the creation of a hero, all in the instinctual response Johnny has when his girlfriend is kidnapped by Gozadilla, a revenge-seeking monster from Japan (his girlfriend's mother used to be part of a science action team that fought Gozadilla in the late 1970s)....
"The" moment is that last double-page spread (you can enlarge all the double-page spreads by clicking on them) when Johnny just instinctively leaps from the building to attack the monster with his bare hands, knowing in his heart that he can't really hurt the monster but he'll be damned if he is going to let the monster get away with his girlfriend!
Fred Chao rocks!
