This Week in Panels: Week 36

May 30th, 2010 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Welcome back for another week. It’s been a pretty damn good week for comics, even with that Rise of Angst miniseries. A really full week, too. Reader Space Jawa sends in one for Ultimate Enemy, which I heard was a pretty big letdown. Sure, it’s going to lead into the next miniseries, but there’s apparently no closure.

That Wolverine vs. Daken arc comes to a pretty sweet ending. My personal favorite comic of the week is Incorruptible, which has gone from being simply a good concept to being a great superhero story. I hope the Plutonianverse goes on forever.

  1. Whoa. Is that Noir Deadpool?

  2. A few thoughts…

    ASM: After the gut-punch of the last issue, this one felt like a bit of a come-down. I suppose it was inevitable. I don’t know why Spidey was surprised that the Lizard spoke, though; he’s been talking since his first appearance.

    Deadpool:MWAM: Sometimes I wonder about your criteria for choosing these panels. (As I read the books, I try to guess which panel you’ll choose.) I thought you’d go with one of the ones where Iceman is whining about his broken back. Funnier.

    Doomwar: Twist ending ruined by the cover. Now THAT’S the Marvel I remember from my youth!

    Secret Avengers: I was slighty off here. I thought it would’ve been “You have someone who can just ‘check out’ Mars?” “Of course. What kind of outfit do you think I’m running?” I liked this book, but I’m underwhelmed by the surprise ending. It seems it can’t be true, since the character at the end has his own book.

    Secret Warriors: Another great issue, but I was thrown by the art. It wasn’t bad, per se; I just really like the regular artist. Was this just a fill-in job?

    Tbolts: Pure awesome. As a long-time fan, I loved the ending. (Also as a long-time fan, I hated Songbird’s redesign.)

    This week I started getting the TPBs of Marvel’s cosmic books, after hearing so many good things. I got the three Annihilation books, and I wasn’t disappointed. I’ll be able to comment on the Thanos Imperative in about three years when I’m all caught up!

  3. Oh god Booster’s face, exactly how I’d have pictured it would be in responce to something like that

  4. Oops. Forgot to respond to stuff.

    @NeoKefka: Sadly, no. Noir Mimic.

    @clay: The way I see it, the conflict of that issue is Deadpool and friends vs. Zombie Iceman. The stuff with Iceman complaining about being crippled may arguably be funnier, but it also flat out tells you that Deadpool wins. It’s a denouement. Plus that gag worked because it was stretched over several panels.
