This Week in Panels: Week 10

November 29th, 2009 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A good variety of panels this week. Granted, it may not be the greatest thing that I’ve been reading Clone Saga out of pure nostalgia mixed with curiosity, but that’s still better than hermanos reading Jeph Loeb’s Hulk for whatever damn reason.

Mark Waid and Paul Azaceta

Arkham Reborn #2
David Hine and Jeremy Huan

Blackest Night #5
Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis

Criminal: The Sinners #2
Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips

Dark Avengers: Ares #2
Kieron Gillen and Manuel Garcia

Dark Wolverine #80
Daniel Way, Marjorie Liu, Stephen Segovia and Paco Diaz Luque

Green Lantern #48
Geoff Johns and DOug Mahnke

The Goon #33
Eric Powell

Hulk #17
Jeph Loeb and Ian Churchill

Immortal Weapons #5

New Mutants #7

Spider-Man: The Clone Saga #3

So fitting that Blackest Night comics come out the week of Black Friday.

  1. Okay, so I’m really loving Ultimate Comics Avengers and its team now. They’re all so interesting and new.

  2. I’m reading Clone Saga for the same reason… I figure I’m allowed one six-issue mini like that.

  3. I love just seeing single panels out of context. It makes both Criminal and Green Lantern look like comedies. I read both, so I know what they are in context, but when you just see one panel of some red monster named Atrocitus who’s just smiling, it seems much more comedic.

  4. Man that Green Lantern panel sure looks like it was pulled straight out of a Star Wars prequel.

    That little thundercloud is my new favorite thing.

  5. @Chad Nevett: Also, I think part of it comes from it being a six issue story written by Howard Mackie. He can’t go off the tracks when it’s that short, so it’s like an interesting experiment.

  6. No Herc panels? I’m boycotting 4th letter until I get satisfaction sir. I DEMAND SATISFACTION!

    Also you totally underestimate Howard Mackie’s ability to suck.

  7. @Pedro Tejeda: First off, I’m catching up on Hercules, so cut some slack. I need to anyway. That’s where my beloved Agents of Atlas live.

    As for Mackie, I’m not saying the series is going to end up good, but like I said, I’m interested in what happens to his writing when you take out his biggest flaw and make him write closure.

  8. I must say, the Hulk looks rather dashing sporting that suit and glasses.

  9. In case you wonder what saturday morning cartoon they were talking about….http://www.lilformers.com/index.php/2009/11/16/lil-formers-172-blackest-night/..this webcomic make it clear

  10. In fairness to Mackie, ex-Marvel editors not being able to write closure in their freelance work seems to be a thing. I found Fabian Niecieza a mix of incomprehensible and unreadable for years, and I’m convinced CB Cebulski giving writing tips via Twitter is a joke I haven’t gotten just yet.

    Having said that, I’ll contradict myself by saying that despite some horrendous bat-family writing, I still have a soft spot for Pete Tomasi I can’t quite explain – yes, even after Batman: Blackest Night.

    I did say I couldn’t explain it

  11. great week of panels. loved the ares, BN, Goon and ASM ones.

  12. I really like these Weekly Panel posts. Keep it up!

  13. CB Cebulski’s “how to break into the comics industry” tips usually end up being “pester editors”

  14. @Lugh: That’s funny in itself, as he’s one of the loudest advocates of Marvel’s “no nobodies” policy of only hiring people who’ve been previously published or already work in television/comic book editing.

  15. Hey Gavok. I’d just thought I’d bring these to your attention.


  16. I don’t know who is to blame for Clone Saga being so bad (as in, Defalco or Mackie), but the only way #3 makes sense is if characters previously established as being smart got played like chumps.

  17. @Psychoblue: Thanks. The publisher sent me an email about that too. You know I’m on that.
