Dynamism of the Night Train

Made up of details, arranged in chronological order, of screen caps from 3rd run of U.S. four-man bobsled team 1, piloted by Steve Holcomb.

To my surprise, I found the experience of watching bobsled during the Olympics exciting and dynamic in quite a visceral way, and I wanted to see whether that dynamism could translate to the comics medium.

For some reason (all the diagonal lines, I think, contrasting from panel to panel) it reminds me of this Irv Novick page, featuring the Shield, from Pep no. 1:

Come to think of it, it's probably also the American flag theme.

(Thanks to Rusty Witek for sending me the Pep scan, by the way!)


  1. This is very cool.

  2. Great stuff.

    Have you seen the recent Speed Racer film?

  3. Steven Holcomb just posted a link to this on his FB fan page... awesome!
