NOW THAT'S A SPLASH PAGE: Daredevil's 'Happy St Patrick's Day' Brawl

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 better way to celebrate St Patrick's Day, then with Marvel's Irish Catholic Avenger; Daredevil - drawn by the guy that brought out the Irish scrapper in him best; the late and great Gene Colan.

And the other dude is even wearing green - how more apt can a splash page be (without being inked by Ed McGuinness that is)?

Few can top a fight scene drawn by Colan. The way he crammed so many angles into the scene and created a new kind of pacing in the process, will stand the test of time.
