NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL A SPLASH PAGE: Sue Finds The Thing

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 current desktop wallpaper, The Thing, by Jim Lee.

Snagged from the first Heroes Reborn issue of Fantastic Four, it may not be technically a solo image 'splash page', but it sure conveys the size of the powerhouse member of the kooky quartet. While I've always felt a little queasy when 'Mother of Marvel 'Sue Storm is drawn in a porn starish pose with a butt that could crack realities, I can't stand when  Ben is drawn at normal guy height and fairly athletic build. He's the freakin' Thing!

 What do you think?

  1. I agree about the Sue pose - its a bit seedy considering her 'mom' pose. Have to agree 100% about how the Thing is drawn - he should imo be twice the height of everyone else. The art for Heroes Reborn was worth the hassle of reading the book...I think!

  2. We become more and more like twins every week Karl! Next you'll be saying you like M&M's and only eat them in a precise colour order.
