HANDS one more time: Big in Japan #2 page 21

Even monsters and very comic book-y superheroes have expressive hands.
Look at Iron Man in the top two frames. On the left he wrings his hands and on the right he holds on to his head for sorrow. On the right the dead monster Droom for whom he is grieving holds his hands out helplessly.
Even the robot in the wide frame in the middle of the page uses his right hand to point tauntingly at Giganto and Eerok.
And at the bottom, Dr. Yamane pulls away from the onslaught of monsters from the ocean, fingers spread wide in a gesture of anxiety.
