I mostly like this page, but it’s not without it’s problems.
The main issue is that it’s too cramped, the result of last minute script revisions.
For instance, I added the “Kaboom” panel late in the process to make it clear that Vamos has shattered Shield’s forcefield with his flurry of punches and kicks. Without his cheeky comment I wasn’t sure it was entirely clear what was going on.
I’m not sure how I feel about the overlapping panels in bottom half of the page. I only had a dozen or so pages under my belt at this point and I was still experimenting with what worked.
I don’t think the overlapping really adds much to the action, so, I if we’re creating this page today, I’d probably go with a more traditional layout.
The inspiration for Vamos’s attack on Shield’s forcefield comes from an episode of Justice League Unlimited called the Great Brain Robbery.
In the episode, the Flash and Lex Luther switch bodies. With the Flash’s powers, Luther is basically unstoppable, and eventually ends up in a fight where he shatters Green Lantern’s energy field with a million punches.
The same is going on here. Vamos is tearing through Shield’s forcefield with lighting fast punches and kick.
