This Week in Panels: Week 181

March 10th, 2013 by | Tags: , , ,

Good news, everybody! Rotworld is over! Open up the champagne! Knock over the giant statue of Arcane! We can finally move on!

Welcome to this week’s edition of This Week in Panels, the segment that takes a bunch of comics me and some others have read and cuts them down to size into single panel chunks that best describe what kind of comic you’re going to get. With me are Gaijin Dan, Was Taters, Jody and Space Jawa. Oh, and Matlock, the guy who convinced me to start reading Injustice: Gods Among Us contributed too. Good for him.

The one for Avengers was a hard choice because it’s a really clever issue and I didn’t want to give away the ending. My pick comes off a little ho-hum. It’s still worth checking out.

Also, I had my first Improv 401 performance today. I’ve done better and I’m sure I’ll do worse, but I have two more shows left in the next month and I’m confident I can improve. It seems like I’ll have a video to post in a day or so.

Is anyone else getting “Goddamn Batman” vibes from that Winter Soldier panel?

It’s insane when Doug Mahnke can take a month off of Green Lantern and you still find yourself blown away by the art. Really cool issue.

Now check out this disturbingly catchy mashup of “Gangplank Galleon” from Donkey Kong Country and “Tarzan Boy” by Baltimora.

  1. This thing does NOT like ios devices. Stray images everywhere. Duplicates. Undisplayed images.

  2. @West: Works fine for me, other than one undisplayed image that I got rid of.

  3. Double Celebration: In addition to Rotworld being over, this week also saw the conclusion to H’el on Earth!

  4. Saito Hajime is the man.

  5. Ha, is that Iceman yelling at Captain America, there?

    I’ve lost patience for Marvel House-Style Super-Slow Storytelling, but Bendis does seem to be reinvigorated by switching to X-Men.

  6. @James W: Even better. Captain America shows up to argue with Beast about the whole time travel X-Men deal and Iceman and Kitty decide to recite what they think the conversation is while it’s happening.

  7. That Red She-Hulk panel is terrifying!

    I liked the scene with Kitty and Iceman, but I’m still a bit bothered by Bobby’s pointy ears…
