Quite a story in the pictures! (4)
I believe the answer is:
'quite a story' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)
'in the pictures' is the wordplay.
'in' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.
'EPIC' is hidden within 'the pictures'.
(Other definitions for epic that I've seen before include "eg The Iliad" , "Impressively great" , "Long poem/story" , "Long poem, book, film" , "Of heroic proportions" .)
