This Week in Panels: Week 134

April 16th, 2012 by | Tags: ,

Late update and I’m honestly kind of slumping over as I write this up. Today I took a trip to NYC and watched the Upright Citizens Brigade show ASSSSCAT, which had special appearances by Amy Poehler, Seth Meyers and Bobby Moynihan. Awesome time.

This week I’m helped out by Space Jawa, Jody and my old friend Gaijin Dan Mastriani. Nothing from David, but on the subject of my boss who hates it when I call him boss, he has a really fantastic Comics Alliance post that should be up any day now. I got to read it ahead of time and I suggest you check it out once it’s published. It takes his JMS post from the other day and turns it into the tip of the iceberg.

  1. Am I the only one that thinks that the Punisher and his lady-friend look a lot like Snake and Meryl from Metal Gear Solid? Especially with Frank wrapped up in bandages and his hair like that.

  2. Aw man, is the dweller in the darkness really one of those guys about to get jobbed by nightmare? I liked him! Mostly because I only remember two things he did:
    1: Have a master plan to kill Dr. Strange that was “throw a billion guys at him for about a year, then get bored and stop for a poorly explained reason without ever showing myself.”
    2: Have a big fear-off contest with nightmare where despayre backstabs them both because it turns out scaring people silly for 24 hours makes them stop screaming and start despairing.
    …Okay, now I’m not sure why I liked him anymore.

  3. That Demon Knights panels is pretty compelling.

    “Doom on Doom action.” Sometimes comics make me happy.

    That ad makes my brain itch. I may try a couple more once I figure out how to scratch it.

  4. Awesome, indeed. 1980’s probably my favorite.

  5. So, am I understanding this correctly? Before Race Bannon protected the Quest family, he worked for the Galactic Empire?

  6. I cant wait to read Secret Avengers im loving the new arc

  7. I wasn’t the only one who immediately thought there was a comic with Race Bannon in the line-up, eh?

  8. So Suicide Squad is actually doing the whole keep unwilling people on the team plot again. Despite the fact they go on missions that can’t afford to be compromised and if one of them decides to go out with a bang they’re screwed

  9. I saw the panel for Demon Knights #8 and immediately thought of this…


    I mean, seriously speaking, Dc has to find some way to rationalise the future existence of Azrael, right?

  10. Suicide Squad is really weird, like a bad comic stalking a good comic around a house, trying to catch it and smother it.
    Maybe if Waller was at least somewhat sympathetic as a character…

  11. Wow. I have to admit, that is a Hell of an advertisement. I’d say they’ve earned my business.

  12. 1492 and 0 were my favorites for the ad.
