Today on Creature Feature, "Walt Simonson vs. the 9-Panel Grid!"
Yes, he cheats a little, but you cram those monsters into a single panel.
Slacking off for the holiday, but here's a page from Video Jack #6, written/plotted by Cary Bates, plotted by Keith Giffen, art by Walt Simonson. It wasn't a very successful series, but damnit if Epic didn't used to try some new stuff. Simonson isn't an artist I usually think of for working in the 9-panel grid page style, although I've seen him cram a ton of smaller panels per page; usually head shots, like in Star Slammers or Orion. Coming up later though: some of the best panels of that style. Soon.

Couldn't find your email, so I'm posting this here. Any chance you'd want to join in with us over at the Legion of Doom for our weekly Book of Doom this week? All it entails is reading one book and sending over your thoughts by Friday night or Saturday morning.

I'm thinking Silver Surfer: Requiem or Hellboy: Darkness Calls for the issue this week.

If you're up for it, email me at van/dot/jensen/at/gmail/dot/com.

Look forward to hearing from you.
