This Week in Panels: Weeks 48 and 49

August 29th, 2010 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Due to extenuating circumstances, I wasn’t able to do ThWiP last week, so it’s been accumulated into this week’s update. For last week’s picks, I’m disappointed in David for choosing that specific Avengers Academy panel when the true honors should have gone to Reptil asking a disgruntled Cain Marko if he can say, “Nothing can stop the Juggernaut!” for his amusement. Was Taters rejoins the show once again, unable to choose between panels for Superman/Batman, so we went with both.

Warning: there is something really fucked up going on with Hal Jordan’s hands in the Legacies image and you won’t be able to stop yourself from staring at it.

See that image I used for Dark Wolverine? That was literally the most exciting panel I could muster up. It was either that or the nail-biting image of a little boy on a bus telling Daken that he has cool hair. You know how most issues of Dark Wolverine have that scene in the beginning that’s just Daken walking around and interacting with random people to show how creepy/sinister/sexy/mysterious he is? It’s that for a full issue.

David tells me that Esther picked it up because she thought it would be a good jumping on point. Esther, I am so sorry.

  1. Jesus Apollo has cancer or something. Give the man a sandwich.

  2. What the fuck? Is that Shade in Hellblazer?

    Oh shit Milligan’s on Hellblazer?

    FUCK I have to wait how long for this arc in trades on Hellblazer?

  3. I have no idea what’s going on in that Azrael image, but it will haunt me for the rest of the day.

  4. I was loving until Joker and Lex.

    Now I just miss Bill Watterson.

    Seriously, the interent gets Betty WHite on SNL but we can’t get this guy back?

  5. @Nat: Ninja Scroll, Nat. Ninja Scroll is happening.

  6. Yeah, that image of Hal’s…fist…is suggestive. The look on his face, even mores.

  7. Hm. That’s supposed to end with “moreso,” but it kept getting iCorrected.

  8. @Syrg: I think next year–the next trade (due in Oct/Nov) covers the India arc, which was good, but the Shade arc has been very good. I’m reading the original Shade in trades, and this arc spoils the fates of a few characters, but so what, it’s great.

  9. oh snap did Azrael and Crossed do a crossover?

  10. also, Leonard Kirk is fantastic.

  11. Y’know, Wonder Woman’s new outfit really isn’t that bad without that stupid jacket.

  12. …I need to start reading Azrael.

    And the Namor panel is hilarious. Just two words, and that’s all you need.

  13. Joe England: Agreed. Once the jacket’s removed (and those ridiculous straps) it’s a surprisingly clean design.

  14. I’m surprised you didn’t post Gadget’s cameo in Darkwing Duck. ^_^

  15. @david brothers: I read most of Shade years back, so no worries about it ruining twists for me. I’m just irked that now I have yet another fucking DC trade to wait on that I may forget exists by the time it comes out.

    I have a bunch of preorders listed for 2011 on Amazon now all because of that goddamn company.

  16. IMO, the Deadpool Team-Up image that SHOULD have been used is when Deadpool asked Machine Man if he had any lube because he was having a hamster problem.

  17. There were SO many potential panels from DP T-U; that was seriously the funniest thing I’ve read all year. I don’t always like Warren Ellis’ character derailments, but his Machine Man was a thing of brilliance. And the gift that keeps on giving. Who wrote this issue? I didn’t recognize the name…

    I would’ve thought the Secret Warriors panel would’ve been when Steve asks, “Nick, are you over your head?” But that one was good, too. Lord, I love this book.

    Thunderbolts was covered by Brothers earlier, but can I just reiterate that this book is a marvel in economic storytelling. This issue wrapped up the cliffhanger from last time, furthered sub-plots and characterization (yay Juggie!), performed its part in the Avengers Academy crossover, and still found time for a bad ass fight scene. That’s a lot of plot in one issue, and it never felt rushed.

    Compare to Bendis’ Avengers books. Now, I’m enjoying these (“New” moreso than “regular”), but the summary of each issue could fit into 10 words or less:

    -Avengers fight demons, Fist discovers main villain, Hand is useful.

    -Avengers fight anachronisms, Stark meets elderly self (mastermind), Killraven?

    Bendis is getting better at plotting, but he’s still way to in love with his banter to write a truly great Avengers book. (To be fair, his banter is pretty good, if a bit same-y.)

    Secret Avengers is really the most traditional Avengers title right now. The first arc didn’t really blow me away, but it was solid enough.

    Deadpool Corps was anticlimactic. Regular Deadpool was anticlimactic, anti-exposition, anti-rising-action, anti-denouement, and anti-every other literary device.
