I don’t know about the West End, but over here, our Grantaires take their relationship with Gavroche very seriously. So here is a compilation of some Grantaire’s screaming in agony when Gavroche is killed :D
Joe Spieldenner, 4th National Tour (this is THE scream of agony. The official one)
John Rapson, Broadway (This was early in his run, where he actually said “OH GOD NO”. Very memorable.)
John Rapson, Broadway (Later in his run, where it’s just a scream)
Adam Monley, Broadway understudy
Dennis Moench, Broadway understudy
Eric Van Tielen, Tour understudy (dat whimper doe)
Joe Spieldenner, North Shore Music Theatre (just… wait it out. The whole thing. It’s worth it)
[Marvel Premiere #17 by Doug Moench and Larry Hama VS Iron Fist (2017)]
We weren’t sold on the decision to forgo Danny’s revenge quest as his motivation for returning to New York in the MCU… but now we are. Regardless of whether or not this juxtaposition was intentional humor, it’s hilarious.
Aztec Ace was a comic title from the defunct independent publisher Eclipse Comics. Originally written by Doug Moench and pencilled by Dan Day, 15 issues appeared from 1984 to 1985. (The characters reappeared in the 1988 Total Eclipse comic series.)
Other contributors to Aztec Ace were inker Nestor Redondo, inker Ron Harris, artist Mike Gustovich, artist Tom Yeates, colorist Philip DeWalt, colorist Steve Oliff, colorist Sam Parsons, letterer Carrie Spiegle, and Eclipse editor cat yronwode. The Aztec Ace logo was created by Denis McFarling.
The story revolved around a time traveller named Ace (real name: Caza), whose goal was to save the timestream from unraveling through various intricate adventures. Ace is from the 23rd Century, with his base in pre-contact Aztec Mexico; he often visited ancient Egypt. His main enemy is Nine-Crocodile, who creates time paradoxes in an attempt to save his own dimension at the expense of other realities, especially, the modern world as we know it.
Characteristics of the series were time travel, the use of cultural icons such as political figures, historical situations, songs, and cult movies in unexpected situations, and philosophical musing. Historical renderings of ancient cultures were detailed and imaginative. Careful reading, broad knowledge, and patience were required of the reader, as well as some understanding of the ongoing storyline, all of which possibly prevented it from gathering a large following.

Whats your favorite comicbook writer for the Batman and Catwoman relationship?
It’s a toss-up between Jeph Loeb and Doug Moench. If I had to pick I think Moench has a slight edge over Loeb, just because he wrote so so many great and different versions of the relationship both in canon and in alternate universes. Also he wrote one of my favorite batcat meet cutes of all time along with one of my favorite batcat quotes.
But then again Jeph Loeb wrote Hush, and like it’s Batman: Hush. This is the comic that got me shipping (and reading Batman comics). Jeph Loeb also wrote The Long Halloween which is my favorite Batman arc of all time. Both really nailed the dynamics.
I don’t know. Don’t make me pick. It’s like choosing between my children.
