Comic Book God

Sunday Quick Fix.

I started uploading these Johnny Quick stories from DC's adventure Comics from the middle of Mort Meskin's run, not because his earlier work wasn't impressive but because I wanted to get to the realy good stuff as soon as possible. As from last week we have now entered what I consider to be Meskin's prime period on this strip.

This time around we have another impressive splash page, with Meskin's trademark multiple figures way of depicting Johnny Quick's speed. There is much to applaud in the individual panels (such as the shadow work on the police man in the fourth panel of page two, but overall I want you to have a look at eskin's way of using tilted angles to create a lively and well-balanced page lay-out.
