This week I’m paying tribute to St. Patrick’s Day and to the spirit of the Fighting Irish. I only know one Irish song and it goes something like this; “we drink and we fight – and we drink and we fight – and we drink and we fight – and we drink and we fight – and then we go home to the wife – ….wheeeeeeerrrre – we drink and we fight and we drink and we fight…
I’m thinking some good fight scene splash pages are in order.
John Buscema is a titan and one of my faves; this great battle scene is from Wolverine #12, 1989.
Alex Ross’ Kingdom Come was epic in every way, check out this great Superman – Shazam battle framed by an even bigger battle.
Jack Kirby again showing us why he is King, so much movement on this page from his first Captain America and Falcon run.
I love the heavy inks on this Kevin Eastman TMNT splash.
I love the energy in this strong battle splash by Jack Herbert, from Trinity #19, 2017.
This Marc Silvestri battle scene from X-Men vs Avengers #2 is too stylized for me, lots of posing and posturing, not enough fighting!!
