WOULD YOU CALL THIS A TRIPTYCH?

Edited, written and drawn by Kirby.

  1. If this is all one page, I would say "no". My understanding is that a triptych is three interlocking pages showing a vast panorama. Double page spreads were rare at one time. (see FF #62, pages 2-3) There's one 4-page such triptych in Steranko's Nick Fury near the end of the Yellow Claw storyline. I know of no 3-page tripitychs though ... must be really rare!

  2. tri
    three panels.

    So it does not qualify.
    I am sure there are a few true triptych's from Kirby out there.
    Not sure but maybe in a Thor related comic.

  3. If Kirby had designed his Cap or Black Panther stories from the 1977 era with a double page spread after a spash page, would that be term a "triptych?"
