This Character in Panels (1 of 3)

July 24th, 2013 by | Tags: ,

The other day, my regular series This Week in Panels hit the glorious Week 200. In preparation, I asked for assistance in putting together this special article This Character in Panels. Well, you guys didn’t disappoint. I got a shitload of entries from all around. It was overwhelming in the sense that a job I thought would take just a couple hours instead took me until today. Also, because of the many images involved, I’ve decided to split this into three parts, posting one a day.

The basic idea is to showcase one panel of a character’s history that best sums them up. It might be serious. It might be funny. It might not even have them in the panel at all! I got a lot of stuff from readers and people at the Something Awful forum and even had to ignore a bunch of entries because either they gave me splash pages (which I never use for these) or the complete lack of issue information.

Hell, I wanted to use that infamous, “PUNISHMENT DAY!” panel of Punisher 2099, but I have no idea which issue it’s from, so I passed. Regardless, thanks to everyone who helped out.

Oh, and I’m not listing the volume information for any of these. I have enough headaches as is.

  1. Ha, I love this. I was thinking of sending some, but this is the sort of thing where I try to think of specific things, nothing ever comes to mind. Well that and I just kind of forgot about it.

    I should have at least tried to get a good Lois Lane one.

  2. This was great fun. Also despite having all the cards stacked against him (terrible costume, being French), I really wish that Batroc could be cool someday.

  3. Man, it’s awesome having a panel I submitted be a part of this! Thanks again for setting it all up, Gavin!

  4. Who is Batgirl talking to in that panel?

  5. @Dorey Mifaso: Barbara Gordon/Oracle.
