What can I say...I like quiet moments, both in comics and in movies. Sometimes, the world is just too noisy for me.
Let's enjoy some quiet moments, shall we?
Deadman enjoys a cheeseburger in Brightest Day #7. And bonus: Dove is wearing a hat!
I like seeing characters do normal things. I mean, they've got to take a break to eat sometime, right? Plus, that White Ring has a real sense of humor.
A pre-Two-Face Harvey Dent watches over his wife in The Long Halloween. I love the muted colors.
Oddly enough, do you know what drew my eye in this scene? The tissue box on the tray table. A simple little detail that makes so much sense. When things make sense, I'm happy.
A human J'onn J'onzz, in the midst of investigating some "American Secrets" catches some much needed Zzz's.
Probably my favorite understated panel of the three. I remember the first time I read Martian Manhunter: American Secrets and this panel stood out at me. Why? Well, for one, the pose is so natural that it's obvious that penciller/inker Eduardo Barreto has a gift for watching people. Secondly, there's such a calmness to this moment, which in contrast to the consistent tension throughout the book, is like coming up for air after being held under water for a long time. Since the book employed first-person narration, it's a lot nicer to have the narration scenes overlaid upon moments of quiet rather than on an action scene, where the effect of a film noir voiceover is lost. And besides, who hasn't taken a nap on the couch and had to cover your eyes like that because of some stray light?
So....enjoy the quiet, while it lasts.
