This Week in Panels: Week 69

January 16th, 2011 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Huh huh. Week 69.

Very DC-centric week this time around, mainly because Was Taters contributed more panels than even me. Not that she’s only into the DC stuff. For instance, she also reads Thor: The Mighty Avenger and that’s Marve–DAMN IT, that’s canceled, isn’t it. Anyway, thanks to her as well as David Brothers and the man known only as luis.

I’m certainly going to need the help of any interested readers for next week because I have an entire three comics I plan on picking up (Green Lantern Corps, Avengers Academy and Deadpool MAX). So if there’s something you’ve been reading that you want represented, by all means. Now on with the chlorophyll.

Batgirl #17
Bryan Q. Miller and Pere Perez

Batman and Robin #19
Paul Cornell and Scott McDaniel

Birds of Prey #8
Gail Simone and Guillem March

Eat your heart out, Roddy Piper. Lex Luthor has the foresight not to run out of bubblegum when it comes time to kick ass.

My personal favorite of the week is Dead Avengers. I just plain enjoy the hell out of Van Lente and I dig his attempt at criticizing and fixing the final moments of various heroes while mixing and matching them into some entertaining dynamics. Captain Marvel’s there for the sake of star power and inspiration, but some of the others are there because Van Lente appears to feel that they died badly and deserve better. I’m really hoping the surviving characters come back to life at the end of Chaos War, much like the final moments of Blackest Night.

  1. So a question I have on submitting panels for the week – previously, I’ve been using the lists that you, DB and Esther have in the Cypher column each week as a guide for whether I should send in panels in a given week, however I’ve also noticed that on occasion, I get the impression that DB and/or Esther don’t submit any for the column in a given week.

    Does that mean I should send panels from comics they read if I’m getting them too as a ‘just in case’ back-up so you have something should they not send you anything in a given week, or should I just play on the safe side and only submit panels from comics that none of the three of you are reading?

  2. Wow, yellow Deadpools vs. Birds of Prey!

  3. @Space Jawa: David usually submits what he reads. Esther, not so much. There you go.

    @Michael Hoskin: Sadly, I doubt their word bubbles are red.
