    In most cases, each issue benefits from at least one splash page. It can add drama and impact to an important scene, including both action and non-action scenes.

    I’m personally not a fan of double-page splash pages. In a way, it takes me out of the story. It makes me notice the paper and the pages. It can be used well, for sure, but I just don’t like it as a reader.

    I’ve never written a double-page spread as a writer.
