Up Against The Wall

Abe Sapien “The Drowning” #2

Writer: Mike Mignola, Artist: Jason Shawn Alexander,
Colors: Dave Stewart

I wanted to choose a panel from The Mighty Avengers #10 this week, mainly on the retro “big dot” printing (done by colorist Justin Ponsor I suppose.) It is very clever in a nostalgic way. But I kept coming back to this amazing panel.

The cool and collected Abe Sapien loses it. I love the curve of the stone wall which cramps Abe, all hunched over about to explode. The curved shading lines in the left background then sweep down and in to compress the space even more.
