    The passion for comic books/graphic novels can often be down to the beauty or dynamics of a single frame (it is for me anyway). So here's a thread for just that.
    Kicking off with a Steve Diko favourite:

    I saw this panel in b&w in a review of the first Elfquest color book and promptly went out and bought it. Elves riding wolves, kewl! Wendy Pini...

  7. Here's a single panel that's nothing much on its own, but is notable for inspiring the name of a legendary-in-certain-circles rock band - from Daredevil #77, 1971...

    I'd forgotten about that Mark Schultz dinosaur book - another reason to love Dark Horse, right?

    "Foul Play", drawn by Jack Davis for EC's The Haunt Of Fear in the spring of 1953, concerns a vicious baseball player who slides into second base and takes out the fielder -- permanently. The (in)famous final panel, in which fielder's teammates exact a gruesome revenge, was mentioned in Dr. Fredric Wertham's notorious 1954 attack on comic books, Seduction of the Innocent.

    Warning: graphic image may offend some more sensitive readers (that is, wimps):

    That's a famous panel, but it's also a notorious Bob Kane swipe. Here's the original drawing (by Hal Foster) that Bob Kane copied:

    And just for fun, here's Bernie Wrightson's homage to that panel, from Swamp Thing #7:

    In 1966 Mad Magazine published a spoof of Hogan's Heroes by Jack Davis and Larry Siegel. This is the classic last panel.

    Warning: the following satirical micro-aggression may force more sensitive readers to seek a safe space:

    That's the Nick Fury I recall,
    Compared with the movie version, a howling success.
