This Week in Panels: Week 218

November 25th, 2013 by | Tags: , ,

It’s the, “Shit, I’m exhausted. To hell with it, I’m taking a nap first,” edition of This Week in Comics! This week I’m joined by Gaijin Dan, Space Jawa, Was Taters and Dickeye. I did try to get through Harley Quinn #0, but that wasn’t happening. It’s so desperate and blatant in its attempt to rebrand Harley as DC’s Deadpool with breasts that it’s kind of grating. Plus, you know, they want us to enjoy the adventures of a protagonist who just murdered about a hundred kids for no reason a month ago.

Speaking of DC aping Marvel’s style, here’s a really kickass article Chris Sims wrote the other day. He can go to Hell for dedicating an entire paragraph to insulting What If, though.

Stop. Panel time!

“You know, this place is surprisingly easy to break into!” is still really funny.

  1. What this about Venom and Guardians of the Galaxy, then?

  2. @Space Jawa: Venom and Captain Marvel are joining the team in a few months. Flash Venom.

  3. I can only pray that Flash Thompson in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is all part of a careful buildup to a perfectly-timed Flash Gordon/Queen “WOAH-OH! SAVED EVERY ONE OF US!!!” joke…

  4. So Gemini Man’s schtick now is that he can split into two halves as usual, except one is insane and the other isn’t? Pretty interesting.

  5. @MegaSpiderMan: Not exactly. In the comic, Ra Moon has taken over the programming of the Mega Man 3 Robot Masters, causing Mega Man, the MM1 Masters and the MM2 Masters to team up against the MM3 Masters. While Gemini Man is under Ra Moon’s control, his shadow self is unaffected and ends up aiding in his own defeat.

  6. Wow… did Animal Man just do a Jackie Chan/kung fu movie panel homage?
