Hey, folks! It’s time for ThWiP, the weekly segment where we take all the new stuff we’ve read in the last week and whittle it down into an essential panel. I got a lot of people helping me out this week, including Was Taters, Jody, Gaijin Dan, Space Jawa, Brobe, luis and VersasoVantare.

Good times. Space Jawa, who has his own Deviant Art site, decided he needed to make something based on this week’s Dark Avengers.

The same issue features Jeff Parker taking one of the stupider recent Marvel developments that no writer wanted to touch and fixed it with a nice, handy retcon. Million-years-old Dr. Doom, my ass!

  1. thug swampthing and Frank Castle as Naked snake/Big Boss it a good time to pick up comics.


  2. Stupid Sexy Sinister.


  3. Anybody else find the Warbird scene really odd? I mean, for one, I think it’s weird when building a new character to throw “possibly homophobic” right out of the gate. It’s not really endearing. Also, there’s the obvious fact that she’s an alien, so her perspective and viewpoint is different. I can infer what she’s saying, what she’s objecting to, but why? Is it a cultural thing, a personal thing, a military thing, or something else? That make sense to anybody else? I don’t really know how to put it.


  4. [...] This Week in Panels: Week 144 from 4thletter! [...]


  5. @lascoden: Not just homophobic, but with strong feelings on the validity of marriage? You sure that’s an alien, and not just some lady with facepaint and a feather boa on her head?
    (Speaking of which, I can get the laziness of human aliens in stuff like star trek, for budget reasons, but this kind of crap in comics has always pissed me off – you can draw WHATEVER YOU WANT and what you want is “humans but almost not 100% quite”?)
    Also, Captain Atom has taught us a valuable lesson once again: comics cancer is the most powerful entity in any universe it exists in.*

    *Unless it affects a recurring character, in which case there’s good odds of it being totally impotent. In all fairness, same applies to death.
