This Week in Panels: Week 167

December 2nd, 2012 by | Tags: , , , ,

Greetings! For another week, Was Taters has been off on vacation in the Negative Zone (or wherever), so my team includes Space Jawa, Gaijin Dan and Jody. Jawa and Jody both gave me panels from My Little Pony (“I got 8 pages and couldn’t finish. This was the best I could find.” — Jody) and I have two panels from Before Watchmen, so you get to decide who’s more despicable!

Also in regards to Space Jawa, he’s now part of the site Thought Balloons. The idea behind it is that each week, he and a bunch of other contributors choose a different character and the writers — as well as you at home — each write a one-page script about them. Give it a look.

Now some panels.

Brian Wood and Paco Medina

Ultimate X-Men #19 (Jawa’s pick)

Uncanny Avengers #2
Rick Remender and John Cassaday

Venom #27.1
Cullen Bunn and Marco Checchetto

That Venom issue might be the best thing Bunn’s written for Marvel so far, not that it really means all that much. After Remender talked so much about Flash’s dad being a dick, the best follow-up is to delve into how much of a bully Flash was when he was younger and deal with that.

I have to say that Secret Avengers was the hardest panel to choose for a while. Earth 666 is ridiculous fun and I’m somewhat kicking myself for not choosing anything with Frankencastle in it.

I’m currently working on a big holiday piece. Here’s a preview of what it’s all about.

There are very few covers of this song out there, unfortunately enough.

  1. Thought Balloons?! I used to be a part of that! Go Space Jawa!

    Also you lucky ducks have Nisekoi in Shonen Jump Alpha now, and as a dude who’s been following the author from his first work that is just about the coolest thing


  2. I’m not sure I’d call thought balloons “new”, they’ve been going for roughly two and a half years now.

    But thank you for the shout out all the same :smile:


  3. Oops. Fixed.

    Still, two and a half years is young compared to this elderly-ass site.


  4. Is that a vampire-beaver? If so, realistically, it should be among the most unstoppable monsters ever to live.


  5. Huh. Would’ve guessed Iceman-meeting-Iceman making it.

    Drakyn . . . looking like a Vampire Bulldog to me.


  6. All new Xmen has been a great treat, but I fear marvels shipping schedule is gonna muck it up. Issue three already looked rushed in some parts, and you know a fill in artist is going to appear soon.


  7. Oh come on now, the Donald Sutherland pony panel was the best one from the FIM comic, bar none.
