This Week in Panels: Week 65

December 20th, 2010 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

This week I’m joined by Was Taters and Luis. Luis insists on sharing a panel of Amazing Spider-Man, which he most certainly hated.

As for that Avengers Academy panel, I can assure you that that is not Metamorpho.

Amazing Spider-Man #650
Dan Slott, Humberto Ramos and Neil Edwards

Avengers Academy #7
Christos Gage and Tom Raney

Batman #705
Tony S. Daniel

Batman and Robin #18
Paul Cornell, Scott McDaniel and Christopher Jones

Chaos War #4
Greg Pak, Fred Van Lente and Khoi Pham

Chaos War: Thor #2
J.M. DeMatteis and Brian Ching

Darkwing Duck #7
Ian Brill and James Silvani

Deadpool MAX #3
David Lapham and Kyle Baker

Green Lantern #60
Geoff Johns and Doug Mahnke

Mighty Crusaders #6
Eric S. Trautmann, Brandon Jerwa, Julian Lopez and Carlos Rodriguez

Strange Tales II #3
Kate Beaton and various others

Thunderbolts #151
Jeff Parker and Kev Walker

Time Masters: Vanishing Point #5
Dan Jurgens

Uncanny X-Force #3
Rick Remender and Jerome Opena

Unwritten #20
Mike Carey and Peter Gross

What If: Spider-Man: Grim Hunt
Mark Sable, Paul Azaceta and Matt Southworth

What If the Venom Symbiote Possessed Deadpool Part 3 (Backup)
Rick Remender and Shawn Moll

I really hope Chaos War #5 doesn’t pull a Siege and suck out of nowhere. I’m really digging it as a miniseries, an event and a final chapter to the Pak/FVL Hercules saga.

As for Darkwing Duck, the series refuses to drop in quality, but this issue surprised me for showing a panel of Gosalyn laying dead on the ground. An alternate universe Gos and in a shadowy area, but it’s still kind of messed up to see a dead little girl in a BOOM! Kids/Disney product.

  1. that kraven fucking looks like nic cage

  2. Oh I get it, MJ is not good at understanding pseudoscience! How hilarious!

    Seriously, this issue was not very good.

  3. @Olympia: Very interesting. In a What If where Spider-Man murders Kraven and steals his outfit, Peter looks like Nick Cage.

    In another What if where Kraven murders Spider-Man and steals his outfit, he later takes Peter’s face…OFF (with his teeth).

  4. Anyone else notice how in the What If? that Toxin was completely forgotten (as opposed to being recruited along with Venom and Anti-Venom)?

    Or am I just the only one who cares? :-

  5. Amazing Spider-Man: Okay, I’m the guy who always thinks that people are looking too hard for misogyny/racism/whatever (not that it doesn’t exist though), but even I’m mildly offended by this. It’s probably supposed to be a cute way to avoid technobabble, but it just comes off as “haha, MJ’s dumb cuz she’s a supermodel.” Other than that I don’t read Spider-Man anymore so I have no idea what the fuck’s going on.

    Avengers Academy: I always find it interesting when you guys and Greg Burgas choose the same panel on here and his “Totally Airwolf Panel” in What I Bought.

    Batman: That’s pretty much the question of the ages for the DCU and MU both

    Batman and Robin: Seriously?

    Deadpool MAX: I’m an old-school Deadpool fan, and his books are some of the few cape comics I read anymore, despite Deadpool not being cool anymore on the internets. Y’know, cuz he got all popular, and Marvel started making money with him, so he sucks. Anyway, I really want to like Deadpool MAX and plan on buying the trade (I only buy trades), but I really don’t like Kyle Baker’s art on this so far. What’s his deal lately? The jarring, super-cartoony look on this book, and that abortion of a Poser comic bullshit he did for a few other Deadpool titles.

    What If Venom…: Who’s the chick?

  6. Re: ASM
    It comes across in the actual comic as Peter and Carrie being total technonerds, moreso than MJ being a dumb supermodel. A great panel, but I suppose it’s open to misinterpretation due to lack of context.

    Anyway, I love this weekly series of panels! Cheers to another year!

  7. I think the Amazing Spider-Panel is a really funny way to work through information that’s probably pseudo-science in real life. It’s cute.

  8. Hey, turns out a 4thletter alumnus has vented about taking that panel out of context elsewhere: http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/2638318.html

  9. @Rosselli: That’s Carnage Curl. Some woman who became the host of Venompool’s rogue sentient jheri curl.

  10. @NeoKefka – Well, I bought the issue and read it before doing anything else on the Internet.

    And it was really jarring. To me it was clear the scene was done to make Carlie look good by making MJ look bad.

  11. @Two-Bit Specialist: What about the very next panel, where MJ gets to do it to Carlie and Peter?

  12. @David Brothers – Yeah, that only reinforces it. “MJ has nothing in common with Peter, but Carlie does.”

    If you look at the overall picture, it’s another instance of “look how Peter and Carlie are SO perfect for each other. See? MJ and Peter don’t even know what the other is talking about!”

    That’s poor storytelling if you have to tear down one character to build up the other.

  13. I am just going to leave this here, for context~


  14. Deadpool Max was ridiculously good.

  15. […] GALORE: Hark! A Vagrant, His Face All Red, Quarter-Life Crisis, Kate Beaton’s Rogue, and MORE Kate Beaton’s Rogue, Olgaf (NSFW disclaimer!), secret (okay fine, totally not secret) evidence that leads me to believe […]
