NOW THAT'S A SPLASH PAGE: Ghost Rider Gives Dr Strange A Black Eye Of Agamotto

Splash pages, you gotta love 'em. A blank canvas where the artist can hit you with a large dose of illustrated 'wow'. This week, one of my all time top characters, Ghost Rider, takes on the Master of the Mystic Arts, the Sorcerer Supreme, Dr Strange... and well, hits him for a six.

While Stephen Strange is quite a blithe wee fella and more of a mind over might kind of guy, what makes this splashie even better is the other team-up going down within its borders - that of iconic Ghost Rider artists Javier Saltares and Mark Texeira!

Mark's inks bring a gravel-like texture to Javier's usually clean line work, making a united style that suits the spirit of vengeance right down to his butt-kickin' boots. For more great splashies, click here.

  1. That actually is a pretty bad ass splash. I've never seen this one before.

  2. Thanks Dale! Me I think Doc told G.R. his problem was just a 'bug going round' and offered him conveyor-belt antibiotics. I know I hate when a Doc does that to me - all those years at med school and 'there's a bug goin' round' is the best they've got? Did someone alert the Coastguard?...
