NOW THAT'S A SPLASH PAGE: Firestorm's Giant Salami

Splash pages, you gotta love 'em. A blank canvas where the artist can hit you with a large dose of illustrated 'wow'.

Sometimes when I put this feature together my mind literally splits whoever which artist, cover and company to feature that I haven't spotlighted in a while. As Firestorm has made hearing voices popular since the 70's, I guess he's elected.

Firestorm's almost drawn with a nuclear symbol around him in every panel and poster he's ever appeared in, but you know what, it never stops looking awesome.

Sure he's now a super-famous TV dude, but hey - he was on Super-Friends first - and a Kenner Super-Powers must have. I think there's a lesson for us all there. What lesson? Don't ask me I'm not a teacher, I just write this stuff.
