    You didn’t mention the Warren Ellis run on Moon Knight which had some amazing ways of conveying action and movement. Take a look at this video for a complete breakdown of one issue:
    The blood on the wall scene killed me the first time I noticed it.
    Warren Ellis (or rather the artists collaborating with him) has some great examples of comics that make you feel like you ran with the characters through the whole book. Global Frequency and the issues he did on Secret Avengers are great examples.
