NOW THAT'S A SPLASH PAGE: Domino Says 'Bring On The Ninja's!'

Splash pages, you gotta' love 'em. A blank canvas where the artist can hit the reader with a large dose of illustrated 'wow'. This Friday, a splash with a two fold perrpose - splash first, reason's second.

Domino vs Ninja's, one of the great images from recent mini X-Force: Sex and Violence (which actually was as literal as the name implies). 

Why? Because a) there has been far to little of artist Gabrielle Dell'Otto this year and we all need to pause just to remind ourselves of his 'wow-ness', and b) tomorrow I'm going to be attending the wedding of one of my best mates, and not being sure of how much mush will be vocalised throughout the day, I thought it wise to line my stomach with something a little darker first ;D

Plus who doesn't like ninjas?


  1. Ninjas are awesome! And so is that page! I'd kind of like to pick that one up now. Have fun at the wedding Dan. Try not to be too mushy.

  2. Dan, I am happy to you visiting my blog. There are Google translator, and you cand understand, weathever, my language.

  3. If this is the Domino I think it is (X-Force?) she was a close second to Psylocke in my book. Just chalk that up to another frosty beverage I owe you when we finally do cross paths Dan.

  4. Glad you like it folks! There were quite a few great splashies in this mini to chose from, and it's a bit of a gamble posting one with the main characters back to the reader, but it kicks so much butt it was harder not too.

    Survived the wedding Random - was really cool. Day went without a hitch and everyone had a great time. Mush was kept to just the right level too. :D

    You are right Craig it is Domino from Cable's X-Force (and Wolverine's), and in the hot sun like we have here at the moment, a frosty beverage sounds like a Nobel Prize winning idea!
