September Splash! - Day One

Today's splash is a classic.

Steve Ditko was a master of the multi-panel page. The amount of story he could pack into a single page - it was stunning.

So when Ditko went for big panels, you knew it was for something special.

Therefore, when Amazing Spider-Man #33 rolled around, we knew we were in for a treat.

The situation - Spider-Man is trapped under a bunch of rubble as the roof is about to collapse, drowning him in a deluge of water from the river. He has a serum to save his dying Aunt May, but he can't get to her because of the rubble. He is basically stuck, waiting to die.

But this is Spider-Man!!!

After seeing visions of his Uncle Ben urging him on, Spidey finally works his way through the pain, and we get the following classic full page splash (after a series of big panels)...

That was a classic issue--the next few were so-so until the Green Goblin returned.

Spider-Ham also did a great refrence to this storyline.
