This Week in Panels: Week 164

November 11th, 2012 by | Tags: , ,

Hey folks. Back from watching Wreck-It Ralph, which I consider the second-best racing movie to star John C. Reilly. I enjoyed the movie, although the explicit Custer’s Revenge sequence was a little too hardcore for a Disney film. Maybe it’s just me.

My crew for this week includes Gaijin Dan, Jody and Was Taters. Taters has decided that all of her picks from Worlds’ Finest will be based on how the comic has become about Power Girl being naked and little else. Fun trick of DC, giving her a more conservative outfit only to pull the rug out.

Weird how being one with the Rot has made Deathstroke look more Liefeldian than in his own book.

I’m going to miss Avengers Academy, although I guess it’s about time it’s sent off to pasture. Not planning on reading that stupid-looking Battle Royale follow-up they have planned unless it gets some surprisingly good word of mouth.

I recently watched the Rifftrax of Guy From Harlem. It’s worth a look.

  1. dang never thought to see ivy and the swamp thing in the same panel.

  2. I read some speculation about the latest issue of Animal Man being a swing at Liefeld, and that panel certainly seems to confirm that.

  3. @Dave: A few panels later in that Animal Man Issue, Gar knocks off Grifter’s head, wise-cracking that he never liked him anyway

  4. That shark looks the way DBZ Abridged Nappa sounds.

  5. Whatan appropriate Deadpool panel to have Gavin’s name under it.

  6. Man, it was weird to read a Deadpool comic where the jokes were funny and there was a plot.

  7. . . . is Grant Morrison really just watching Doctor Who and writing it down now?
