NOW THAT'S A SPLASH PAGE: The Galactus Venom

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 by Alex Saviuk that sees the fanboy wet dream union of two of Marvel's mightiest menaces from the stars, Galactus and Venom;

When I turned this page I think I even let out a 'Hell Yeah', and wondered why they hadn't stuck this awesome visual as the holographic cover to Web of Spiderman #90, rather than just plain ol' Spidey sitting on a wall.

While it's never actually happened in the Marvel U (the mists in the background should tell Spidey fans who's behind this vision), I always do a quick check of the Marvel solicits to see if some writer's gone 'Hey that ball has some bounce to it - let's run with it!'.
