(Jaime Hernandez, THE DEATH OF SPEEDY)


Death of Speedy

reblogging mattfractionblog:

“One of my favorite pages of comics ever. That second tier– the things happening between each panel, the bravado it takes to cut like that, are even today unparalleled. (Juxtapose this with that quote I ran the other day from Jaime, frustrated about his choice to not use captions to clarify things– and yet captions here would ruin the effect and, indeed, the story’s denouement).

Every time I talk about wanting an audience of co-conspirators rather than consumers, it’s because of pages like this and the effect they had – and still have – on me.”
