This Week in Panels: Week 80

April 3rd, 2011 by | Tags: , , , ,

Welp, I’m back from watching this year’s Wrestlemania. If you missed it, it was a really bad show that featured the burials of Sheamus (US Champion), Daniel Bryan, Alberto Del Rio (Royal Rumble winner), Wade Barrett (Intercontinental Champion), Heath Slater (Tag Team Champion), Justin Gabriel (other Tag Team Champion), Ezekiel Jackson, Jack Swagger, John Morrison and Dolph Ziggler. Why push what should be the future of the business on the show of the year when you can instead have Triple H and Undertaker boringly masturbate for 45 minutes?

At least things turned out well for Cody Rhodes. Good on you, Rey Mysterio.

This week I’m joined by Was Taters, Space Jawa and VersasoVantare in a week where I lose both Remender’s Punisher and Deadpool Team-Up. This has not been a good week for my hobbies.

Avengers was an easy issue to pick a panel from. Only one page was actually split into panel form! That Deadpool Team-Up panel best represents every conversation I have with David Brothers.

Now here’s a wrestling-related thing to cheer me up. The theme song for the hypothetical Chris Jericho/Razor Ramon tag team.

So nice.

  1. I agree with you on the loss of Deadpool Team-Up. That series was even better the main Deadpool ongoing. I am not happy to see it go.

  2. Wonder Man is drawing comics now?

  3. Holy crap, Death’s Head! Agh, only in the UK, dammit.

  4. Very unfortunate that Deadpool Team-Up was canceled. I think Wade’s at his best when he’s with other characters to play off of. That way there’s less of him just talking to himself, which is always good but only so much can be done with it. I just want to see more Bong Dazo on Deadpool books or really anything for that matter. The man knows how to draw, and especially knows how to draw women. His girls have asses on them, man!

    Can’t wait for 5 Ronin to come out on trade!

    I thought that Beast had gone back to his blue-furred ape look? Maybe that was just wishful thinking. At least Frank Cho agrees with me on that point.

  5. I know it’s not covered here, but can I say what a disappointment Deadpool Corps has been? I know I shouldn’t have expected much, but I loved Merc With A Mouth, and I thought the Prologue to DP Corps was decent, so I had some hopes for the follow-up series.

    But DPC itself has simply been lackluster and dull, with a couple of exceptions. Especially this second storyline, which feels like it’s been taking forever. Fact: Deadpool fighting an undead T-Rex in the Savage Land with his zombie head from another dimension is more fun than five Deadpools manipulating generic aliens.

    But, I second the above on DP Team-Up.

  7. @Clay, I don’t know who Kieron Gillen is, but even a good writer is hard-pressed to make Liefeld art palatable. The only reason Prelude was any good was because the man Victor Gischler was writing it. Merc With a Mouth was even better because Gischler was on keys and Bong Dazo on pencils. If you liked those two, I highly recommend Gischler’s prose novels, especially Gun Monkeys and Suicide Squeeze. Not quite as absurd humor since they aren’t about Deadpool, but his prose has the same punchy dialogue and fun, fast pacing.

  8. I’m still pissed that Marvel made the fans vote to keep either Deadpool Corps or Deadpool Team-Up (my favorite ongoing) and then just decided to cancel them both. Total dick move.

  9. I’m not sure what Kieron Gillen has to do with Deadpool? He’s the new X-Men writer; I hear good things about him. But DP Corps was written by Gischler, which is why is was so disappointing. (And no, the art didn’t do it any favors.) But it just seemed to lack the zing that Merc w/ a Mouth had.

    I didn’t know Gischler wrote any novels; I may have to check them out.

  10. @clay: My bad, Amazon listed Gillen as the writer for some reason. I looked at Marvel.com and you’re correct, Gischler did write the whole series.
