This Week in Panels: Week 38

Ah, what a world we live in where Booster Gold himself (well, Keith Giffen too, I guess) is the one carrying DC these days. Let’s get with the panels.

Avengers Academy #1
Christos Gage and Mike McKone

Batman #700
Grant Morrison, Tony Daniel, Frank Quitely, Scott Kolins, Andy Kubert and David Finch

Booster Gold #33
Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and Chris Batista

Buzzard #1
Eric Powell and Kyle Hotz

Captain America #606
Ed Brubaker, Butch Guice, Sean McKeever and David Baldeon

Deadpool Corps #3
Victor Gischler and Rob Liefeld

Deadpool: Wade Wilson’s War #1
Duane Swierczynski and Jason Pearson

Heralds #2
Kathryn Immonen, Tonci Zonjic and James Harren

Heroic Age: Prince of Power #2
Greg Pak, Fred Van Lente and Reilly Brown

Invincible Iron Man #27
Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca

Iron Man: Noir #3
Scott Snyder and Manuel Garcia

Justice League: Generation Lost #3
Judd Winick, Keith Giffen and Fernando Dagnino

Punisher MAX #8
Jason Aaron and Steve Dillon

Rawhide Kid #1
Ron Zimmerman and Howard Chaykin

Secret Six #22

S.H.I.E.L.D. #2
Jonathan Hickman and Dustin Weaver

Ultimate Avengers 2 #3
Mark Millar and Leinil Francis Yu

Young Allies #1
Sean McKeever and David Baldeon

Ultimate Avengers had a shocking lack of “Millar rolleyes” in it. Here’s hoping he can keep that up. Meanwhile, Jason Aaron’s depiction of Bullseye in the MAXverse is increasingly disturbing by the panel. Not as disturbing as the revelation that there’s a Fancy Dan MAX out there.

I waver on Deadpool Corps, but I thought this issue was mostly a pretty good one. Unfortunately, there’s a major screw-up in the art. They fight these gold alien guys, but repeatedly refer to them as blue.

  1. That panel with Amadeus looks like he’s drunk and he’s hitting Thor with a bottle of booze.

  2. Complaining about art that’s drawn by Liefeld?

  3. I love the design on that Japanese armor. Very nice…

  4. Man, that Punisher panel is off the chain.

  5. So I guess Wade Wilson’s War is out of continuity? I wish they’d let us know these things. Well, I liked it anyway.

    Regarding DP Corps, your complaint would be pretty easy to No-Prize away. I mean, these are Deadpools we’re talking about. Just because they call the aliens blue, doesn’t mean they actually were blue.

    SHIELD: I’ve no idea what’s going on. I kind of like it… I think?

    Avengers Academy: A decent start, I think. The characters are certainly strong; we’ll see what kind of plotlines Gage can throw at them.

    I didn’t know Ron Zimmerman was still writing comics. I haven’t seen his name since that awful, awful Kraven miniseries a while back.

  6. Steve Dillon’s children look like miniature grown men. Considering the venue, that’s…

  7. Who’s he Red Skull lookalike in the first panel?

  8. …I only just now noticed the “BORK BORK BORK” sound effect from Amadeus Cho beating Thor with Hercules’ mace.

    That’s awesome. 🙂

  9. @Prodigal: Mettle. He’s described as being like Colossus without the ability to turn off his power.

    Originally he was going to be called Fortress, which would have been way better.

  10. that japanese suit should have been made a more brazen parody of mecha 🙁

    Agree on Bullseye, he’s so fucking disturbing but Aaron writes him like he’s having so much fun in his job, and Dillon makes him seem positively giddy

  11. I really like Steve Dillon’s art. I feel like a lot of the complaints against Dillon (and Quitely) are made by people unfamiliar with human faces.
