So just how amazing is Spider-Woman?

...So amazing that she can fire her venom blasts diagonally across the panel gutters of her own comic book!:

Spider-Woman #19
Panels from Spider-Woman #19 (October 1979), script by Mark Gruenwald and Steven Grant, pencils by Carmine Infantino, inks by Mike Esposito, colors by Ben Sean, letters by Jim Novak

Ha! Take that, Scott McCloud! Jessica Drew laughs at your petty definition of comics panels as sequential static visual representations of physical action marking the passage of time! Ha!

Carmine Infantino would beat the crap out of Scott McCloud. Right now. At age 137. For reals.

I'm torn -- part of me wants to fret over how tiny Jessica's waist appears to be in that top panel, and part of me wants to make juvenile jokes about the line "Is he wearing some sort of protection?"
