NOW THAT'S A SPLASH PAGE: Lex Wishes Superman Had Search Engine Otimisation

Splash pages, you gotta love 'em. A blank canvas where the artist can hit you with a large dose of illustrated 'wow'. This week, what with the heralded return of artist Frank Quitely just yesterday, it only seemed polite to give splash page honours to him. Not just any splashie though, a seminal moment from the similarly seminal one-shot; JLA: Earth 2;

Somethings shouldn't be left in the 80's. Team-up comics like Marvel Two-In-One, Brainiac's tentacled spaceship, Wolverine's brown and tan costume and Lex Luthor's green and purple armour. In fact anything that made the Super Powers toy line should be declared off limits by virtue of cool.

Here, Frank showed while he may be another Luthor from another world, the ability to create and colour a kick ass suit of war is something all Lex's have in common.
