Panel Design and story telling 

These two pages from Black Monday Murder, by Jonathan Hickman writer and Tomm Coker on art, are excellently crafted. Each panel alternates between an interrogating and someone nearby harming themselves (you have to read it to find out). But these two pages have a flow; one beat dialogue, next beat the harm being inflicted. The beats are magnified each panel as the drama raises and the pace picks up-the damage worsens and effects show more to those near by. The alternating of colors in panels adds to the intensity.
