Splish Splash 4

posted on July 8, 2021

Okay, this is just me here invoking house rules when I refer to this as a deflecto-grabber splash. I’m sure you won’t hear anyone else calling it that, but it’s the kind of thing that Stan would quite often do. It’s where you open a Daredevil book only to find Dr. Strange, Thor and Captain America and are thrown for just a nano second by Stan’s artful deflection of your thoughts in a different direction. Then you bounce back as you realize that Foggy Nelson is in a costume shop. It’s a deft touch that grabs your attention while also billboarding other titles without you even feeling it.
