Everyone loves a good splash page. It grabs the readers attention by popping an important image off the page. They can pass along important exposition; they can fill you in on the past; they can (and usually are) used to portray epic action shots, but one thing's for sure: they really give the artist a chance to flex their pencils, inks, and colors to the max.

So what are splash pages, exactly? A splash page is any page without other panels. It can be a single page (such as the opening page with credits and such) a double splash page (such as the center fold staple-y area of the book) or a multi page fold out sprawling poster deal (Big in the 90's, hard to keep pretty).

Below are some of the most iconic and gorgeous splash pages in mainstream comics!
