Best Worst Joke From Jeff Parker, 2011: Thunderbolts 162

February 1st, 2012 by | Tags: ,

Thunderbolts by Jeff Parker/Kev Walker/Declan Shalvey/Frank Martin is definitely my favorite ongoing Marvel comic, with Hulk by Parker/Gabriel Hardman/Elena Cassagrande/Bettie Breitweiser/Rachelle Rosenberg a close second. Parker and the gang delivered a lot of great moments over the course of all 12+ issues of Thunderbolts shipped in 2011, but only one scene instantly filled me with white hot rage and uncontrollable laughter simultaneously. Art by Valentine De Landro with Matthew Southworth, colors by Frank Martin & Fabio D’Auria.

Fear Itself: Thunderbolts hits comic shops and book stores today. A good starting point for the franchise is Thunderbolts: Cage.

Parker co-created a webcomic with cartoonist Erika Moen, too. You can see the last page of Bucko if you visit the home page, but you should click here to read the tale of the troubles that arise from trying to have threesomes. Learn well from the mistakes of young Bucko.

Jeff Parker, writer of these tales, is the greatest monster history has ever known. Someone stop him before he goes too far.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Oh wow. I need to be reading this book.

  2. I love Songbird on the T-Bolts and all, but it still annoys me that Quake and Wolverine are on the Avengers and she hasn’t been yet.

  3. Must pick this up.

  4. Peter David got there first in Captain marvel, but I love how utterly straight it’s played here. This book is one of the few reasons I still have anything to do with cape comics anymore.

  5. Sales are down. A lot of people are worried it will be cancelled soon. I’ll be immensely disappointed if it is.

  6. I don’t get it…

  7. @James: Marvel would occasionally release thick comics filled with extra-large or multiple stories called “Giant-Size ______”, such as how Storm and Colossus debuted in Giant-Size X-Men #1. There were several comics called Giant-Size Man-Thing, which caused decades of snickering because, I mean, look at that title.

    It’s become something of a running gag whenever anyone brings up the character.

  8. Bucko ended?
    Thank’s for the heads up David brothers.

  9. we need to start slapping people who make that joke
