This Week in Panels: Week 228

February 2nd, 2014 by | Tags: , ,

All right, back on schedule! I had an awesome time at yesterday’s National Pro Wrestling Day, which featured the much-needed return of CHIKARA. Without going into too much detail, let me just say that the show featured a run-in via time travel where a guy literally drove in in a Delorean. It was amazing.

I’m joined by Gaijin Dan and Space Jawa. This week happens to feature a terrible comic starring Bruce Wayne’s son as Batman, a decent comic starring Bruce Wayne as Batman and an awesome comic starring Bruce Wayne’s dad as Batman.

  1. Man, Turtles is soooo good. So very, very good.

  2. What is the deal with the Red Lanterns? I thought they were blood puking space punisher berserkers. The panels I have seen here make them seem remarkably down to earth (so to speak).

  3. @Ryan Johnson: Somewhere in Milligan’s run (which wasn’t very good), all the members drank from this lake of blood that gives them control over their instincts, meaning they aren’t raving lunatics. Then Charles Soule took over the series, replaced Atrocitus with Guy Gardner and made it a really fun team book. They’re less Punisher and more Wolverine, I’d say.

  4. Damn, I hope the Joker reminds Batman a few more times that Batman always lets him live and then he breaks out of jail and it’s very tragic. I can’t very well maintain my suspension of disbelief in this bat-costumed billionaire crime fighter if that’s not constantly explained to me in every other issue, episode and film about Batman.

  5. That Thunderbolts #21 panel is a nice try, but it doesn’t really make sense.

    “Contextual best efforts” isn’t something written into a contract, but rather exactly the opposite. It’s not something added to a contract before signing or agreed upon in negotiations. In fact, it only comes up after two parties have already failed to resolve a dispute over an already existing contract.

    It’s a standard that courts and other bodies use in contract disputes to decide what “best efforts” means, in a contract where the contract fails to explicitly define “best efforts” for that particular contract. “Context” here refers to the context that the court or other body uses to determine what “best efforts” means in the absence of an agreement on the term in the text of the contract.

    If one were depending on detail-oriented super-geniuses such as the Leader and Mephisto to hash out a contract, one would hope that the words “contextual best efforts” would never even be uttered!
