I never read John Byrne’s run on Iron Fist, but damn if this page isn’t a great example of a splash page that’s actually depicting a whole motion sequence:

I love how the action “reads” just like how you’d read a regular sequential page with multiple panels, i.e. left-to-right, starting at the top left, and moving your eyes diagonally down and left, then left-to-right again for the next “set” of panels. Very nice stuff by Byrne.

This page is from Iron Fist #10, published by Marvel Comics, October 1976. And credit where credit’s due: I found this page on Diversions of the Groovy Kind blog, which you can also find on the linkroll on the right sidebar of this blog.
