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!
