This Week in Panels: Week 41

July 4th, 2010 by | Tags: , , , , , ,

Time for another go. It’s July 4th weekend (happy 4th from the 4th, I suppose), meaning two Captain America comics and one Steve Rogers comic. It’s kind of moot when you consider I have three Deadpool comics on here. Only two of them are any good. I thought I was losing my mind when Deadpool Corps was starting to win me over, but seeing that I am really not feeling Wade Wilson’s War is almost a relief in some sense.

Invincible is finally getting out of the rut it’s been in since the initial Conquest storyline. Then again, Omni-Man and Oliver have some really nice chemistry and the issue has Battle Beast. Battle Beast rules. If your friends don’t like Battle Beast, then they’re no friends of mine.

I really liked this year’s batch of Joker’s Asylum… right up until this Clayface issue. Almost had it 5 for 5. Oh well.

  1. Verily, Battle Beast doth indeed rule…

  2. Yeah that Clayface issue was amazingly bad. Oh well, 4 out of 5 ain’t bad, considering that all of the writers were total nobodies.

  3. I thought for *sure* you’d post Machine Man using “The Tick” quote.

  4. Not reading American Son. It’s not bad so far, and it’s actually using Gabriel Stacy (ugh) in a way that doesn’t totally suck (yet). Hopefully, it’ll kill him off, or better yet, retcon him away.

  5. Battle Beast is the reason why combat is an art form.
