Some actions take up a large amount of space. The only effective way to show them is in a large panel -- to show all the detail, but also to create some impression of the scale. This will often fill up an entire page of a Comic Book, or an entire Sunday strip for a Newspaper Comic, and all of a usual Web Comic space.

Also used to establish the scene before closing in the action.

Not to be confused with a Dramatically Large Panel (still in YKTTW) where the action is depicted in a larger scale than usual, though if the action results in effects over a large area there may be some overlap.


Examples

Newspaper Comics
  • Mutts frequently uses all of the Sunday strip to depict a woodland scene.

Web Comics
