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.
- Mutts frequently uses all of the Sunday strip to depict a woodland scene.
- In Girl Genius, many large scenes are double-page spreads in the graphic novel -- and split up on the web.
- In Thistil Mistil Kistil, the fall from the cliff's conclusion.
- In Order Of The Stick, scene-setting panels sometimes span the width, if not the height of the comic. such as the city.
