can anyone point me to a modern example of a single panel being used to montage a series of actions...?

basically, i'm looking for a SINGLE panel that depicts a series of small actions over time...

obviously, breaking the action up in panels happens all the time... and using a large panel to depict a single epic moment is common...

but i am looking for a montage of actions occurring over time... but depicted in a single panel/image... i know there are a bunch of them but i can't think of a particular one and i need to show someone one of these as an example...

any help?

Not exactly a panel but in Kevin Smith's run on Daredevil, Joe Quesada did a two page spread of Marvel heroes' radioactive origins including Daredevil, Spidey, and Hulk.

The big foldout page in the final battle of Ultimates 2 has Quicksilver depicted all over the place to represent his speed...

I suspect many Quicksilver appearances use the same technique, but I'm pretty sure that fits what you're looking for.

The Kevin Smith DD issue is one. Another one is the classic issues of The Unknown Soldier by Joe Kubert. Lots of war montage splash pages.

As montage?

The first issue of Brand New Day does, the splash showing Spidey fighting a bunch of villains while explaining at a job interview what he's been doing.

Maybe the recent Marvel history panels that Chueng did in Bendis' last MA?

Not EXACTLY what you're looking for, perhaps, but sort of. It's basically House of M, Civil War, World War Hulk and Secret Invasion done in single page bursts.

But these aren't montage really. This is just a way to denote motion.

But it fits under "a SINGLE panel that depicts a series of small actions over time".

Amazing Spider-man #500, where Spidey has to re-fight all the major battles of his career in a two page spread.

I know Bagley has done them in USM, but I can't cite exactly which issues since they're not in front of me.

New Avengers #14 with Frank Cho on art, has a beautiful double splash page spread capping a lot of Spider Woman's history if that qualifies.

There was a page in Captain America recently that did that. I don't remember the exact issue, but probably within the last 6 issues or so.

Will Eisner did a ton of experimenting with splash pages with The Spirit.

Since he did a lot of his work without borders, you'll see a bunch of stuff like this.

Yabbut the very first line of the thread asks for modern examples.

Did they do a comic book adaptation of Rocky?

Herobear & The Kid did what you're talking about. First page of each issue was a splash page montage showing a passage of time, a remembrance of moments, etc.

It was brilliant.

Jim Cheung is the reigning king of those. He just did a nice few pages of montage splashes in Mighty avengers-- the one with Jan's funeral. Hank's in a limo on the way to the funeral and somebody's filling him in on what he missed while he was a skrull. House of M, Civil War, World war hulk etc. each got a page that sort of recapped those whole events in one image.

I'm thinking there's some pages in Cerebus like this, but I can't recall which issues offhand.
