One-Panel Promos

Flash #6: brutal.  The series is nailing Barry Allen, in several meanings of that word.

Wonder Woman '77 #27:
Fabulous for several obvious reasons.  But the word balloon, of course, is what really makes it.

All-Star Batman #1
 is so very very good. It looks good. It's intelligent. It's emotional.  It's action-packed.
And it has Chainsaw Batman.

All-Star Batman #2 
continues the trend. Some of the art is ACHINGLY beautiful. But I'm showing you as my one-panel promo the one panel that ISN"T achingly beautiful.

But this reproduction of a scene from Two-Face debut story (Detective 66)

is what sells me.

Wonder Woman #6:
The gods appear to Wonder Woman in the form of totemic animals.  That don't show up on security camera.  Don't get me wrong, the rest of the issue is beautiful, intelligent, and emotional.  
But THIS one shows the creators get it in a way that most do not.

Action Comics #963:

I should NOT be so easily hooked by the Silver-Age shenanigans of "how can Clark Kent and Superman be two different people?!"

But, the fact is...
I am.

I absolutely loved that panel in Wonder Woman.

Look at it just right, and Wonder Woman is just zonked out on her bed, on top of her Earth Day bedspread. She's having a nightmare about that time Robert Kanigher had her former editor assassinated.

Like Wonder Woman I have found that I sleep better if I cover my head. I use a Polarex 6-in-1 hood but Wonder Woman knows what works for her.

*squints at Wonder Woman picture* So...that's the mouse of Apollo, the tortoise of Hermes, Hera's peacock, Artemis' stag, Zeus' eagle, Athena's owl...but what kind of bird is that? Is it a quail?

I think it's a dove. Aphrodite perhaps? And I think Diana mentioned the mouse was Haephestus.
