Pages from Scarlet, written by Brian Michael Bendis, art by Alex Maleev.
It’s a truly stand-out comic that can turn something as basic as introducing a character’s back story, into a visually memorable sequence.
At first glace, it just looks like fifteen panels in standard layout. But it’s really fifteen snapshots of the defining moments and characteristics in Scarlet’s life to date. Note that the last panel of a Portland landmark, which breaks the rhythm established so far, is enlarged to emphasize the most telling quality about her.
It’s exposition done as only a comic can do.
my darling @oeming and i dropped by @darkhorsecomics yesterday to grab the first copies of the new Retro girl statue and the first ever powers pvc figures. both came out SO great!
so great that i’m even printing this HORRIBLE picture of me. i am not that fat or stoned! :) but i knew you guys would dig blowing up the background and checking out the stuff on the walls. i am a giver like that!
the figures are heading to you in a week or two, ask your local retailer or hit dark horse,com
retro girl is coming about a month later and is very limited edition.
and if the powers tv show goes it will be a hell of an investment! just saying’ :)
