The second-greatest panel in the history of comic books.

Sometimes there's a panel so good that it satisfies the audience completely, and leaves them uninterested in reading the rest of the story. Such a panel is today's entry in the list of the greatest comic book panels of all time.

I've often stated my love of Golden/Silver Age comic book writing, specifically that they never have a character say something that doesn't end with an exclamation point or a question mark. Of course, with exclamation points in every sentence, it's all too rare to see a situation that actually deserves them, like this one.

Ah, to live in an age where people could announce that an Axe Murderer was on the loose non-ironically.
