Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Okay, in case you didn’t see the introduction, the concept is that each day up to and including the 24th of August, I’ll be posting three iconic panels from Marvel Comics’ 70-year history (panels meaning any single enclosed drawing, including single page splashes). On the 24th, you folks will get a chance to pick your Top 10 out of the 70 choices. I’ll tabulate the votes and I’ll debut the Top 70 Most Iconic Panels in Marvel Comics History on August 31st. In the meantime, feel free to e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with suggestions for panels for me to use!
Here’s the next three panels! And click here for the master list of all the panels posted so far!
Captain America #111…
Would you count this all as one panel? If not, I’ll just crop the top and have the bottom of the page be “the” panel, but it seems like the whole thing is intended by Steranko to be read as one panel…
Amazing Spider-Man #300….
Within, like, a month of this issue, EVERY Spider-Man artist was drawing Spider-Man just like McFarlane drew him on this splash page (thick webbing and all). It became THE look for Spider-Man for most of the 1990s.
