This Week in Panels: Week 178

February 17th, 2013 by | Tags: ,

Welcome to ThWiP! Was Taters is off competing in an arm wrestling tournament to win the custody of Sylvester Stallone’s kid, so no panels from her this week. Instead, I’m helped out by Gaijin Dan, Jody and Space Jawa.

Still got to get around to reading that One-Punch Man thing. I’ll need to keep an eye out when that gets collected.

Injustice was surprisingly pretty damn good, despite the four issues that come before it. It’s a fun and borderline sweet story about Green Arrow apprehending Harley Quinn and hiding her away as although he’s rather disgusted with who she is, he also feels a little sympathy and would rather not see her get literally torn to pieces by an enraged Superman. Plus Harley understands the appeal of the boxing glove arrow.

Now here’s another neat mashup I found.

  1. Man, Cross Manage this week was spesh. Also congrats America, you now have a Daisuke Ashihara series in World Trigger. It’s not as good as the one where he had a science-experiment dog alter reality, but it’s still a good’un.

    Anyway, Gavin, I’d encourage you to read OnePunch Man in the mag if you can (i’m pretty sure it’s even free with supported ads on android stuff now? Dunno, I’m in the wrong country), as Viz seem to be being a bit funny about what they’re even gonna bother collecting from the magazine now.

    Final thought: Why the hell am I not reading Avengers Assemble when it has lines like that?

  2. I thought you said, “One Punch Man THING,” at first.

    I’m slightly disappointed.

  3. Anybody else imagining that Bulma is looking at Radditz’s junk? Seriously, the whole Bulma/Vegeta pairing was just too odd. Also like seeing Krillin’s base expression: fear & panic.

    Forgive me for asking . . . what’s up with the Spider-Woman panel?

  4. The page that One-Punch Man panel is from is an early contender for best comic moment of the year IMO. My love for One-Punch Man knows no limit, and last week’s installment really cemented it. I’m really glad I climbed onto the Weekly Shonen Jump wagon a month ago on a complete whim. If just for One-Punch Man. Toriko’s pretty cool too. But gat dang is Naruto incomprehensible.

  5. I would bet anything that Brian Michael Bendis could not articulate what is supposed to be going on with Cyclops’s powers.

  6. @Jim Purcell: Yeah, Naruto isn’t exactly at a good jumping on point. Even though I’ve been reading the US edition of Jump from the start, Viz skipped ahead a few times and some of that stuff must have been important, because even I’m not entirely sure what’s going on sometimes.

  7. @Jason: Hawkeye and Black Widow are talking about serious and personal spy-related stuff. When Spider-Woman steps into the room, they hush up and being that it’s her boyfriend being secretive with his ex, Jessica isn’t so happy.

  8. @Gavok: It’s almost as if DeConnick was pissing on Bendis with that line, but God doesn’t like me THAT much.

  9. Albert Einstein fighting a luchador? This is why comics are awesome.
