SNAPSHOT By Andy Diggle and Jock
Comics should avoid too much self-reference, of course, but this one is great. Jake, comic book guy, shows his friend:
"WARRIOR MAGAZINE, 1982. RARE BRITISH IMPORT...
"FEATURING THE ORIGINAL PRE-MIRACLEMAN MARVELMAN!"
Friend (likeable, amusing guy) responds:
"NEVER-TO-BE-REPRINTED, TRAPPED-IN-ETERNAL-LEGAL-LIMBO ALAN MOORE GOODNESS?!"
Yes, that is a worthy comic book reference. For some posts about Miracleman, see here.
The Losers (and see here), Green Arrow: Year One and Snapshot make a superb trilogy by Diggle and Jock.
