Jumping Late on The Wednesday Comics Bandwagon

Wednesday Comics is a perfect distillation of super-hero nostalgia. DC's decades-old stable of characters are in themselves enough to evoke nostalgia. But the format used predates those characters and taps into America's rich history of newspaper cartoon strips. It would seem to naturally repudiate the currently favored "decompressed" storytelling style, and it forces the artist to effectively maximize use of the one-page chapter while minimizing concerns about composing coherent long form visual narratives.

Anyway, here are my three favorite pages in no particular order:

Wednesday Comics Sgt. Rock and Easy Co. by Adam Kubert and Joe Kubert
Sgt. Rock and Easy Co. by Adam Kubert and Joe Kubert
Adam Strange: Strange Adventures by Paul Pope and Jose Villarrubia
Metamorpho The Element Man by Neil Gaiman, Mike Allred, Laura Allred and Nate Piekos

And my honorable mentions:

Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth by Dave Gibbons and Ryan Sook
Hawkman by Kyle Baker
Wonder Woman by Ben Caldwell
Deadman: The Dearly Departed Detective by Dave Bullock, Vinton Heuck, Jared Fletcher and Dave Stewart
