This Week in Panels: Week 53

September 26th, 2010 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Welcome to another week of This Week. Not as many comics from my end as usual, but I have David tossing me a couple, as well as contributors Was Taters and Space Jawa. As I start these off in alphabetical order, I find myself asking: what tracks does Emma Frost have in her earrings?

Yep. That’s definitely a post-Starman James Robinson book.

I almost hate to say it, but Hulk has my attention at the moment. Damn you, Jeff Parker. Damn you for making me pay to read a comic starring Red Hulk. Damn you. And if you’re wondering, yes, he did already insert the obligatory Jeff Parker Agents of Atlas appearance.

  1. Wait, didn’t we already go through the whole “Terry and Robert torture Donna” in Blackest Night: Titans? Has Robinson really lost his touch? It’s not a rhetorical question . . . I feel that I’m genuinely out of the loop.

  2. @Jason The villain of the piece actually forces Donna and Jade to relive pretty much every single bad moment of their lives. That was just the one that made me roll my eyes the hardest.

  3. Maybe I’m missing the point, but the one thing that sticks in my mind is, “What If All of Marvel’s Superheroes And Supervillains Wore Baseball Caps?”

    If they can create a universe where battles are musical numbers…

  4. I don’t recall an AoA appearance with Red Hulk or the latest ish. What/when did I miss?

  5. I’m sure Kaare Andrews is a nice guy, but those necks are killing me.

    I like the idea of Storm rocking an X-cap. Keep it pro-black.

  6. The art in Xenogenesis makesmy eyes bleed.

  7. @West: They were on one of the monitors when Rogers was saying how there’s a superhero team dealing with each and every Leader/MODOK threat.

  8. What I really liked about Hulk #25 was that Parker threw in some scenes that would definitely please the folks who wanted to see the Red Hulk taken down a notch, but handled it in such a way that it actually added to the character scenes and moved the action forward and wasn’t just “TAKE THAT, YOU TERRIBLE CHARACTER!”

  9. Storm’s hair looks like feathers. She’s part Shi’ar!

  10. @Jason Barnett: They’re just ill feather earrings, is all

  11. Wow, Cyclops is swole.

  12. So I’m guessing from that first panel that Marvel has some new X-men baseball caps to roll out on suckers.

  13. @Jason:

    Looking back on it, Robinson never had a touch to ruin.

    I’m sorry, but everyone just barfed in my ear about Starman and I picked up the first volume of the omnibus and, when you take away Harris’s art (which happens anyway if you keep reading), it’s another escapist superhero book about a hapless young dude talking to himself about power and responsibility and sadding on girls and how unlucky he is all the time. It’s hipster Spider-man. The side stories about the Golden Age and villains are nice; I could read a volume of those, maybe.

    But as someone whose first time reading Robinson was his Superman, I don’t think he’s significantly declined or improved.

  14. aw yeah Gizmo Duck

  15. @Jbird: Regardless, even though I disagree with you, no one was getting fucking eaten or turned into a throw rug in front of Prometheus’ fireplace. And yeah, Harris leaving was disappointing, but I like Peter Snejbjerg.

    Robinson also wrote Leave it to Chance, and a great WildCATS run.

  16. @Nathan: Not Gizmoduck. Gozmoduck.

  17. Man, what is even going on in Justice League any more? It doesn’t even seem like there’s really much in the way of a team any more.
