WHAT is coming exactly? Why, Walt Simonson Week, that's what!
I've shown some of his Thor before, so it feels like cheating to show more during Simonson Week. He's tackled plenty of other Gods, thankfully!

"Graverobbers from Beneath New York" from Daredevil vol.3 #9 (Marvel, 2012) by Mark Waid, Paolo Rivera and Joe Rivera
Seems like I'm often using splashes from the current Daredevil series. Well... it's just so GOOD!

"Track the Bullets" from Batwoman #6 (DC, 2012) by J.H. Williams III, W. Haden Blackman, Amy Reeder, Richard Friend and Rob Hunter
There was a question as to whether or not this title could survive without Williams' art - the major draw, surely, pun not intended - but I guess he scripts (breaks down?) with his stylistic flourished included. Amy Reeder did a fine job keeping Williams' graphic innovations in the book.

"With a Stolen Horse and a Smile" from Conan the Barbarian #1 (Dark Horse, 2012) by Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan
This new book has brought me back to Conan. I love Cloonan's joyful and youthful Conan, and Brian Wood makes you feel the pulp roots of the character (it's an adaptation, after all) through the purplish narration.

"Slash Option: Linda Park/John Fox (Future Flash)" from Flash vol.2 #116 (DC, 1996) by Mark Waid, Oscar Jimenez and Jose Marzan Jr.
For the next five days, Your Daily Splash Page pays homage to, what else, Saint Valentine's! Romance will abound, not all of the "Slash Option" variety.

"Chillin' with the Watcher in Newsprint Space" from Fantastic Four Annual #3 (Marvel, 1965) by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Vince Colletta
And here I thought Kirby invented this kind of trick in his Fourth World books. Not so! (I'll showcase one of those Newsprint Space splashes tomorrow.)

"The 10th Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver Could Do Anything" from Doctor Who vol.1 #6 (IDW, 2008) by Gary Russell and Stefano Martino
Wait a minute. Does that look like the 11th Doctor's screwdriver to you?

"Slash Option: Supergirl/Superman" from Supergirl vol.5 #7 (DC, 2006) by Joe Kelly, Greg Rucka, Ian Churchill and Norm Rapmind
Ok ok, it's not really OUR Supergirl and Superman, but it does give a fright, doesn't it? Brrrr.
