This Week in Panels: Week 52

September 19th, 2010 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Goddamn. It’s been an entire year of this. I hope you folks have been actually enjoying these. I mean, I do it regardless because it’s fun, but if you’re digging it too, sweet.

It’s just me and Was Taters this time around. Shockingly, we’ve BOTH read Azrael this week, making me wonder if we’re in fact the only two who are keeping up with the series. And yet Azrael is still going to last at least 14 issues. I’m not complaining, but it is rather strange to me. Maybe Didio really likes the guy.

Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine #3
Jason Aaron and Adam Kubert

Avengers & The Infinity Gauntlet #2
Brian Clevinger, Lee Black and Brian Churilla

Azrael #12
David Hine and Guillem March

DCU Legacies #5
Len Wein, Scott Kolins, George Perez and Walt Simonson

Deadpool #27
Daniel Way and Carlo Barberi

Incredible Hulks #613
Greg Pak, Scott Reed, Brian Ching and Tom Raney

Joe the Barbarian #7
Grant Morrison and Sean Murphy

Marvel Universe vs. the Punisher #4
Jonathan Maberry and Goran Parlov

Shadowland: Power Man #2
Fred Van Lente and Mahmud Asrar

Steve Rogers: Super-Soldier #3
Ed Brubaker and Dale Eaglesham

Thunderbolts #148
Jeff Parker and Declan Shalvey

Unwritten #17
Mike Carey and Peter Gross

At this point, I’m really losing my patience on Deadpool and a recent Daniel Way interview with Newsarama doesn’t give me much hope for its future. If I’m not satisfied by the end of this current arc, I’m dropping it.

Tomorrow I’m going to be following up this post with This Year in Panels. And later on I’ll be doing a 4 Elements post. And on Tuesday, we’ll have another Cripes on Infinite Earths installment. What I mean to say is: stay tuned.

In the meantime, here’s the greatest ending to any wrestling match, featuring Player Uno.

  1. What is up with the dudes mouth in that Azrael panel? Doesn’t look right without the upper face.

  2. The man in question is an overly religious dude with mind powers. He picked up a golden cross and heated it up (both actions with his mind) and shoved it against his face so that he has this big cross on his face and no nose.

    Crusader is a pretty rad villain.

  3. In contrast, I dug Deadpool this week. Barberi’s art was looking good, and the story was pretty funny.

  4. I never would have guessed that Doom was a Trekkie.

  5. Too bad Az doesn’t have Storm’s powers. One light shower and Crusader drowns t’death.

  6. The juxtaposition of the captions against the “World’s Greatest Dad” mug was one of my favorite parts of this month’s Unwritten.

  7. Huh, there’s Halo weapons on that Arab guy’s wall.

  8. I recall seeing Halo weapons pop up in Messiah War too. I wouldn’t be surprised if certain artists have been riffing them even before then.

    Jason Aaron keeps being amazing at playing with superhero properties. Him and Rick Remender both.

  9. I like the thought that Doom and other like him have lives outside of sitting in their evil palaces, thinking evil thoughts all day.

  10. I love these posts.

    Dont stop,
    dont stop,
    dont stop til we get enough.
