This Week in Panels: Week 88

May 29th, 2011 by | Tags:

Crazy 88 time. Looks like my intentions to do a post a day petered out last week, but that’s what happens when you spend only minutes at a time at home/conscious. I did get to see Avenue Q for the first time, though, which was pretty great. It taught me an awful lot about the internet and its uses.

I saw Kung Fu Panda 2 tonight. It was totally sweet. Very, very little Dustin Hoffman, but it’s offset by how goddamn amazing Gary Oldman is as Peacock Hitler.

This week we got stuff from David Brothers, Was Taters and Space Jawa. I’ll give you ten guesses on which comic the guy with Jawa in his name supplied.

Xombi #3

You know, some days it dawns on me that there’s a Venom ongoing series out there and I realize that everything is going to be all right (rockabye). All I need is Power Man and Iron Fist to be turned into an ongoing and all will be well.

Between this issue of Iron Man 2.0 and last month’s I have to wonder if Marvel asked Nick Spencer to do a War Machine series and he sighed and gave a resigned, “FINE!” James Rhodes has appeared on 5 of the last 44 pages of the series. And we’re on the fifth issue! Good thing I’m a mark for the Immortal Weapons.

On the other hand, I’m dropping his Secret Avengers like a stone. Holy hell was that last issue terrible. I’m off the series until Ellis takes over.

  1. “You have nothing to be scared of from me…”???

    Holy awkward bat-phrasing.

  2. The panel for FF #4 should have been the upper right panel on the first page of the issue, the sandwich of glory!


  3. You destroyed another planet, Rhodes! What is your DEAL?

  4. You mean John Stewart, right? And maybe DC could trade him to Marvel, so he can be the next herald for Galactus.

  5. “On the other hand, I’m dropping his Secret Avengers like a stone. Holy hell was that last issue terrible. ”

    Right? I’m actually in shock of how fucking abysmal that Secret Avengers #13 was.
