This is Lichtenstein's most famous work. It is called "Whaam!" and was drawn directly from a comic book panel. This drawing is much larger than the original format though. The painting is five feet tall and about ten feet long. The colors are also bolder than they were in the original comic book. The dialogue and the positioning of all the objects remains the same though. The lines are all very accentuated and bold and make the image of the explosion and the plane look like they pop out of the page.
