Splash pages, you gotta love 'em. A blank canvas where the artist can hit you with a large dose of illustrated 'wow'. This week, okay it's not a splash page per say, but when I think of Marvel, this full page public service announcement ain't far from the top. In fact it's a safe bet if you read comics in the 80's, you remember it too;
At the time I didn't really know much about the Pack, and while the exact 'bad touch' in question went over my head too, I did know it was pretty swell of Marvel to get Spidey to flick a word of warning the way of me and my fellow comic book fanatics.
There are so many issues out there today that comics could still help to address - all while staying true to an iconic part of the industries history. "Escapism" can be a helpful tool in dealing with reality. Just as Pete and Power Pack proved all those years ago.
