This Week in Panels: Week 221

December 16th, 2013 by | Tags: , , ,

Welcome to This Week in Panels. This week, we see the return of Matlock, who has sent a bunch of Marvel panels. This includes Mighty Avengers, which frustrates me. Not only is it supposedly really well-written and fun, but the latest issue just brought back Luke Cage’s old sidekick DW Griffith. I would LOVE to go read it, but… Greg Land is drawing it. Damn it.

Also with us are Gaijin Dan and Space Jawa. Jawa pointed out to me this video of Lego Venom going on a rampage and God bless him for that.

At Den of Geek US, I did an article on 10 Marvel What If Concepts That Actually Happened. Unfortunately, I totally forgot about Sentinel until after the fact.

Oh, and this week’s Batman ’66 is pretty interesting. It’s a King Tut storyline, but it’s also an origin of a Batman villain who never got a chance to be on that show. That little insignia should be a big hint.

Ah, WWE Superstars. It is awesome. Rather than stories about wrestlers doing wrestler things, it’s a crime noir universe where the inhabitants of Titan City are wrestlers being non-wrestler people. Like Christian is captain of the police force, Randy Orton is part of the mafia, the Shield are corrupt cops and the Wyatt Family… well, the Wyatt Family are the exact same, really. Chris Sims did a great review of it here. I probably won’t be writing much about it until the first arc is over.

In the meantime, I’m definitely going to watch and review this masterpiece once it comes out.

  1. That seems like a weird reason not read mighty avengers if you really want too. Lands art has been pretty good for this series.

  2. @al:

    No. No, I don’t think that’s the case.
