Cool "big" moments in comics Anonymous 05/29/2020 (Fri) 09:25:14 No. 1527
I've recently been getting into Grant Morrison stuff which is just full of those crazy reveals. I was pretty disappointed in Multiversity, I was hoping for a better take on Hypercrisis, but Animal Man was a nice palette cleanser. This thread is for that far out cosmic stuff, or 4th wall breaking, or crazy reveals that just feel big. Watch out for spoilers, try to mention the comic but maybe spoiler the event. >Some examples DC: The New Frontier, when Dinosaur Island lifts up and the inside of The Centre Animal Man was full of these, but my favourite is early when coyote dies and the camera pans out to show the cross imagery and his god painting his blood The Immortal Hulk has a bunch of crazy shit, like the inside of Galactus/Hulk being made of Bruce husks and all sorts of body horror. Multiversity, which started so great but then had that eyeball monster, which looked dumb, especially alongside the other horrors, and then the heroes won by punching them Mr. Mxyzptlk in Superman: American Alien I'll probably try and find some examples from indie comics next

Big moments are what I live for.

So it's all imaginary then is it? How disappointing.

Dark Nights Metal is clearly a guy wanting to be Grant Morrison very badly, with extensive knowledge of the universe used to try to make abstract points, but then people got distract by the fact that the bad guys were a team of evil Batmans. But still, I do think the story was just crazy enough to work, especially when at the end they say, since it's well established that the different universes are separated by vibrating at different frequencies, that the frequency that the DCU vibrates at is the Batman theme song, a repeating pattern of D-C-D-C-D-C-D-C, which is also why it's called the DC Universe. It's fucking stupid, and I don't know enough about music to know if that actually makes sense, but it makes enough sense as far as comics go, and it's ridiculous enough that I love it.
>>18584 So the DC universe vibrates to the Adam West Batman theme song?
>>18587 Yes. Essentially, the DC Universe is made out of the Batman theme song.
>>18584 Dork Nuts Kettle and its sequel were trash.
>>18626 I haven't gotten to the sequel yet but I liked the first one. It was very dumb but I liked it for reasons like the one I stated. I like deep lore continuity stuff.
