It’s an Unfortunate Name

March 3rd, 2007 by | Tags: , ,

Punisher War Journal #4 was a fun issue, with the goings on at Stiltman’s funeral. Looking at it a second time, I notice Matt Fraction tossed in one very subtle joke.

At first glance, it looks like they’re laughing about some time the Shocker got bested by Spider-Man.

Now, then…

Look at the hand gesture on the right.

“Aw, come on. I didn’t know what that name meant when I picked it. Can we just move on, already?”

Matt Fraction’s keen.

  1. I love how the pinky is shadowed out so that most people will actually miss it. Plus being zinged by Will’O the Wisp, the man Peter actually FORGOT ABOUT, ouch

  2. Sadly, I don’t get it.

  3. “The Shocker” is a sexual act where you make that hand gesture and… Actually, you should probably just look it up on Wiki.

  4. 2 in the pink and 1 in the stink…

  5. Oh man, this is going to make our Google search terms even worse.

  6. Especially for people who are into giving the shocker while on stilts.

  7. I learn something new from the internet every day!

  8. That is awesome!
