This Week in Panels: Week 6

November 1st, 2009 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Here we go with the biggest week yet of this. Big week for Punisher and Ares, so if you like badasses with skulls on their chests, there you go. Ambush Bug was apparently an almost complete rewrite of what was supposed to be #6, so the panel in question isn’t supposed to say, “This is how funny the comic is.” It’s more, “They’re telling the truth and joking about them joking about it doesn’t stop it from being bad.”

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find a good enough panel for Dark Reign: Young Avengers to say, “Well, that was a pointless final issue.”

  1. Which one of you read Ink? It wasn’t goofy blaxploitation, so probably not Gavin, and it wasn’t a very good drama, so not David.

  2. I actually thought the first issue of Ink and thought it was surprisingly decent, but I never followed up on it again.

  3. There are a few things I love about that Anti-Venom panel. Namely the fact that he’s wearing a seatbelt. Eddie Brock may be a recovering Psychopath but he’s a recovering psychopath who knows about car safety. And also he has a goatee?

    I also swear to god I’ve seen that Scarecrow pose before.

  4. @HitTheTargets: It was me, actually. It picked up toward the end.

  5. I thought it had an odd potential at first, but the only way it firmly got away from the cliches I expected was by diving into a pile of ’em I didn’t. Although really I just think it’s weird how much of the second half relies on his tattoos hanging out with him like it isn’t a thing.

  6. Yep, looks like Brock is the only one in that vehicle that remembers Rule #4 from Zombieland.

  7. nothing for the new ‘tec?

    I’d personally have used the “Bob Hope” line from UCA, but I know that’s disqualified for being the last page.

    also kinda surprised you didn’t use either Atrocitus or Larfleeze for this week’s GL

  8. The bit in Anti-Venom where Frank tries to stab Eddie at the border killed me.

  9. @Nathan: That heart scene ruled, but it was too much of a sequence and no real panel to pin it down on.

  10. @Debaser: Personally liked Ink, sure it’s not going to set the world on fire but it was a neat little story, art was pretty enough at times and Wallace did a good job expanding on the story of the TM from where Morrison left off and really actually makes me want to check out Titans now (gasp)

    @Gavok: indeed it did. Mahnke draws the absolute best Atrocitus which made the sequence even better.

  11. Immonen rocks.

    That is all.

  12. It’s a known law that all Young Avengers series not by Heinberg must end with NOTHING changing. At most we’ve had the vision and stature stuff develop, but that’s it. nothing’s allowed to change until he does more of it
