Splash pages, you gotta love 'em. A blank canvas where the artist can hit you with a large dose of illustrated 'wow'. This week, my top splashie of the last few months, ripped from the pages of Wolverine and The X-men #2. Iceman has just blown the roof off his powers by creating an army of ice-men to battle the Hellfire Club's Frankenstein army and caught up in the heat of the moment, he plants one on Kitty.
I love how artist Chris Bachalo handles Kitty's expression!
While sneaking an out of the blue smooch on a ninja-trained female with a pet fire-breathing dragon might not always be a smart move, it sure does show Bobby's fun-loving spirit is back.
With armies of ice-men vs a SWAT team of Frankentsteins, a living island, and a member of the Brood proposing to a mutant, you better believe it, anything and everything can and does happen in the pages of writer Jason Aaron's must read' X-book.
