Killing The Double Page Spread To Death

I ask all comic book people out there: would you care to join me in killing the redundant “Double Page Spread”? Or just kvetching about it?

Because, well, a spread by definition is two pages.

Double page splash, fine, go ahead, because there can also be full splashes, partial splashes,  initial splashes, interior splashes, chapter splashes

A minor bit of tilting at windmills, I know.

Or maybe something like this is ok: “My PIN number wouldn’t work at that ATM machine. Later, even though I referred back to the wrong ISBN number, I received a free gift!”
