To basically piggyback off the similarly titled cover thread show off you DPS artwork (double page spreads and double page splashes are welcome).

Brian,

Those are great. I've admired your Cockrum X-Men one for some time.

I haven't contributed much to any of the "show your xxx" threads, but DPS is probably the rarest type of pages (especially double page splashes instead of double page spreads).  

Each comic book has a cover.  99% of comic books has at least 1 splash.  Not al comic books have a DPS, and you need to buy 2 pages to get one! (I have bought half a DPS a few times in my collecting journey)

Rather than link them all, I will use CAF's feature:

Thanks for looking

Mike Deodato Elektra v. 2 #14 pp. 2-3 DPS (1998) - this is the first piece of OA I ever bought, after stumbling upon it on eBay in late 2002:

Billy Tucci - Shi: The Way of the Warrior #3 DPS (1994) - one of the definitive "Shi" images, used for posters and merchandising back in the day:

New math: a cover = 1 + hundreds of variants ;)

Wow that’s a great one. I loved Billy’s Shi art. I bought all those original issues based on the art with zero knowledge of the storyline.

Appreciate you showing the first piece you bought. The Deodato must be special to you not just for the art but story of obtaining it.

Cheers

The PWJ 7 DPS got my blood racing. Love your DPS collection. The Jim Lee Wolverine ripping across two pages from one of my favorite comic stories was my favorite though.

I’ll add it to all my other formulas.

This OA collecting is more involved then outsiders could ever understand.

Always loved this one by whatsisname.  Berry often had trouble with line weight, but not here -- he did a great job. Plus: It's SO WEIRD.
