This Week in Panels: Week 67

January 2nd, 2011 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey, folks. First off, check out this awesome interview the 4L monarch David Brothers has done at the Comics Reporter. It’ll take you about three days to read, but it’s a good one.

So while I have the usual suspects in David, Space Jawa (is there any other kind of Jawa?) and Was Taters (is there any other kind of Taters?), I also got one from aggressively horny ducks (are there any… um…). He sent it to David, who found it buried in his spam because it came from a guy named aggressively horny ducks. That’ll happen. Why I obviously have What If #200 taken care of, our foul and fowl reader sent in his own panel because, “I don’t care a lot about continuity but this is just foolish.”

True enough, though if any panel from that issue raises my eyebrow, it’s the one of Namor punching Bullseye while saying — not yelling — “Imperious $#%^.” Imperious what? Imperious cock? Imperious fuck? Did he drop the n-bomb? What?

Sadly, to everyone’s dismay I’m sure, I totally misplaced my copy of Carnage #2. Still, we must carry on.

From what I can tell from that New Mutants panel, Goatse’s second mutation has finally kicked in. Good for him.

I guess I should be doing some kind of “Best of ’10” special or something, but I can barely remember last week let alone the last year. Instead, here’s my absolute favorite find of last year. I’m guessing most everyone’s seen this already, but for the few who haven’t…

The Avengers Initiative should have hired that dude.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to sit by the phone and wait for Tom Spurgeon to call me for an interview…


Screw this, I’m gonna go eat some Chocula.

  1. Nothing from Action Comics? I got it for the crossover with Secret Six, and it features a choice exchange between Vandal Savage and his daughter, Scandal. Also: more Jimmy Olsen hijinx.

  2. So…in true Bendis fashion he’s going to alter the history of the Marvel U as he sees fit and continue to go through with his horrible nonsensical, completely under-researched, horribly written and godawful revisions to Marvel’s ‘secret histories’ a la the “Secret Beyonder who was a mutant inhuman” and the “Infinity Gems that secretly work together even though the most powerful being in the 616 said No they won’t work together anymore until these 5 dweebs on this one rock put’em together because they don’t believe me” bullshit? Really? Really Bendis?

    For fuck’s sake, leave the cosmic stuff to Dan Slott and the bunch. Stay in the nice little niche you have in disposable cities in the US and NYC. That’s all you can touch.

    On a positive note however, that Team-Up issue of Deadpool was fan-fucking-tastic.

  3. Capo’s comment hurts my soul. That mutant inhuman crap is some of the worst I’ve ever seen. Giant, rotten peanuts in it. I was hoping they’d never reference it, again.

    Also, that Flash panel was reversed. I don’t think it was that way in the ish. Was it?

  4. Dan Slott has been writing cosmic stuff for Marvel? Do you mean Dan Abnett?

  5. @Capo Del Bandito: The Living Tribunal undid his kibosh on the Infinity Gems years ago in Infinity War. They’ve been working for quite a while.

    And while I’m not sure where he’s going with it, there seemed to be more than meets the eye with the whole Beyonder retcon. I didn’t take that issue of Illuminati at face value.

    @West: It’s about Professor Zoom, the Reverse Flash, so apparently that was intentional.

  6. @Gavok: Eternity came in at the end of the Infinity War and restricted them again, though, according to my TPB. Don’t know if the restriction was lifted in a later story, though.

  7. Yes I meant Abnett. Sorry, I’m into day 2 1/2 with no sleep.

    Harken is right, Tribunal undid the restriction (per Magus’ manipulations) but then put the thing back in place after all was said and done.

    The Beyonder retcon was just bad. BAD I SAY! If he’s willing ot just “Nope, the gems work again because Mr. Fantastic doesn’t believe in the Tribunal, but ok let’s alter this too!”, I’m thinking there wasn’t much to the whole “Beyonder was just playing along” crap.

  8. Looking at wiki, Starlin kind of ignored the whole thing because he had it working as a whole again in the Thanos ongoing.

    I still think there’s more to the Beyonder retcon, especially considering Black Bolt points out that he has absolutely no memory of this guy. I’ve seen speculation that Beyonder himself is retconning himself into the Marvel Universe in a way, but I’m going to continue to wait and see on that.

  9. Shane McCarthy might do awful Transformers, but pretty on-the-spot Deadpool at least.

  10. Bendis couldn’t even keep straight who was in charge of what gem in this story. The Hood stole Reality from Black Bolt, but Iron Man was in charge of Reality. Black Bolt had Space.

    This is bad when you consider that Bendis wrote New Avengers: Illuminati, and he’s writing Avengers currently.

  11. Bendis’ fuckup with the Gems boggles my mind. I’m guessing he couldn’t write his way out of the situation and figured that Reality and Strength would make for the best story and decided “to hell with my own continuity.” Or he didn’t even realize it until it was too late. Either way, dumb.

    The whole thing reminds me of JMS having Spider-Man tell Tony Stark quite casually about his spider sense. Then several issues down the line, during the Civil War stuff, Iron Man made mention of Spider-Man’s power and Spidey was like, “WHAT?! How could he possibly know?! I don’t trust him! He must be the devil!”

  12. The thing that struck me about that Avengers issue is apparently Medusa didn’t bother telling anyone about Black Bolt’s death. The Fantastic Four are only some of your oldest friends, Medusa. Would a quick hyperspace phone call have been too hard?
