We're all familiar with the opening splash pages to kick off a comic. Anybody have any particular favorite LAST splash page that made you put the book down and cry "No!" to the heavens because you had to wait a whole month for the next issue?

This was, IMO, hands down one of the best!

I have fond memories of this one from Uncanny X-Men #114...

I distinctly remember thinking we would see a fanged Cap the next issue.
Then saying "duh, of course that's what should happen", the next month.
How did I ever contain myself for 30 days back then?

I'm concerned that this thread will be nothing but spoilers for those who haven't read these stories at all or may not remember the cliffhanger from reading some time ago.

Maybe add SPOILERS to the thread title?

That storm one has to go down as one of the most sexiest for sure

Edit: I did a search for sexiest comic panel ever and none of them
come even close to that storm one in my opinion.

I'm with Matthew Wilkie. That last splash page is from the 1st ever Alpha Flight and I ever got. The whole issue was kind of messed up (superheroes were supposed to win all the time not get their arses handed to them). The last page was frightening.

That CAPTAIN AMERICA splash is from the first issue I bought of that title. My absence from comics for about eight years meant I’d missed most of Cap’s adventures after AVENGERS 4, and not being fully up to speed on Marvel lore, I had no idea what was going on!

(Shooter complained that splashes like these “turn the last page into an ad for the next issue,” to which the general response was “And that’s a bad idea... why?”)

Funny I was just thinking of this topic the other day. This X-men #99 splash drove me crazy. Distribution of comics was so crappy in my area back in the 70's I never got issue #100 until 5 years later in a back issue store!
