Panel to Frame

My reviews of Fox’s Gotham and The CW’s newly expanding Arrow/Flash
universe would be up by now had I not started tinkering with images to accompany them. Which is how these happened.

Any suggestions, either of shots from comics-based productions that specifically
echo a certain panel or of screencaps, promo images, or production stills that feature characters in such a way that it would probably be easy to find an equivalent shot in comics material? I’ve already put together a couple for the next volley.

I’m giving myself a week or so to get those reviews done for November sweeps, after which a break from the blog is in order to attend to other stuff.

  1. Superman got the most favorites and RTs on Twitter, but The Walking Dead was the most popular on Tumblr. In the works are Wonder Woman, Ghost World, Wolverine, more The Walking Dead, and even some without Ws like Sin City. Suggestions are still being accepted, however, as this may be an ongoing obsession.
