This Week in Panels: Week 81

April 10th, 2011 by | Tags: , , , , ,

Before I get to the panels, I’d like to point out that Rand Hall, a reader inspired by my old Top 100 What If Countdown list to read every single What If issue has finished his own list of his 25 favorite issues of the series. A great choice for #1, which would definitely make my top 10 when I redo my list. Maybe even top 5. If anything, I consider it my all-time favorite Dr. Doom story.

I’m only joined by Space Jawa this week. He only covered one comic, but also included the backup and it starts with A, so he pretty much conquers the above-the-cut part of the article. Well played.

Ultimate Captain America was as badass and kickass as you’d expect from Jason Aaron, but I had to laugh at the last page. I cropped it so as not to spoil too much, but as you can probably figure, he’s reading from the bible.

Ah, good old Genesis verse 1. Tucked all the way in the middle of the bible.

  1. Technically, he could be quoting John 1:1.

    In the beginning was the word, and the word was god, and the word was with god.

  2. Ah ha. My bad, then.

  3. @Molecule: I thought of that as well when I looked at it, but it’s still off. John 1:1 is a lot further in than half way.

  4. Though true, I think the instant callback would be to Genesis 1:1.

    And that’s on the otherwise great Mr. Garney (to be fair)

  5. Maybe Cap splurged and bought the Bible Omnibus which includes all 66 original books, the apocrypha, and the Bible Annuals that Dan Slott wrote.

  6. thats one of them english/spanish bibles

  7. He’s just pretending, obviously. He’s got it memorized and he’s reciting from memory while reading the dirty magazine he’s got hidden inside.
