This Week in Panels: Week 70

January 23rd, 2011 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

In what should have been a slight week has been saved thanks to David, Was Taters and new contributors Neil Curry and VersasoVantare. Veraso came to bat with all sorts of panels from 2000AD, so good for him.

I should note that if you ever do read Deadpool MAX, try to imagine Cable as talking like Leslie Nielson. In fact, do that for all versions of Cable. I mean, I liked the guy from the cartoon too, but he lacks the comedic touch. Look…

“Who are you and how did you get in here?”

“The Wild Man of Borneo… and I’m a locksmith.”

See? That doesn’t even make sense!

Good stuff, good stuff. Darkwing Duck continues to be amazing, even though it’s starting to dedicate itself a little too much to cartoon callback. This issue’s set of Darkwings also includes Jack Knight Starduck, Rocketeerwing and my favorite: Goonwing and Frankpad.

On a completely unrelated note, I’ve been reading through the entire Thunderbolts catalog lately. I’m in the 60’s so far, during Nicieza’s first run. When going through the first Citizen V miniseries, I felt compelled to make this:

I figure I’ll write up my thoughts on the different eras/runs of the series when I’m done with it. Oh, but speaking of writing up about the histories of Marvel characters, I have an article coming up really soon. I’m sure you’ll care about it. I know I care about it. I guess you can say that we care about it.

A lot.

  1. Superman and Batman are the biggest superdickhead dads… :frown:

  2. At first I saw ’60’s’ and thought “Wait a minute, Thunderbolts isn’t that old!”. Then I realized you mean 60’s as in issues.

    There’s my “Do’h!” moment for the day… 😛

  3. Smilin’ Batman FTW.

  4. Count me in as a replier when you do your Thunderbolts retrospective Gavok. I love Ellis, and Diggle…. but to me the Busiek and Nicieza runs are still the definitive runs of the book because of the surprises and morality questions…

    Can we please have James Robinson not write Batman in any form?

    …but even worse than that was Marvel’s decision to make Jubilee a vampire. Talk about ruining the character growth she made in the latest New Warriors series!

    Seriously, I have to start picking up Darkwing Duck over some of the dreck I ampickingup now…was that a SilverWing Surfer? Awesome! 🙂

  5. Roger Rabbit in a Darkwing Duck mask. Perfect.

  6. Still haven’t picked up Darkwing Duck. Those are always among the most beautiful panels that bounce across this column every month.

    Also! I’m excited to see 2000A.D. represented in the column now. I am guessing that you’ve got an international connection now? Some cool stuff comes out of that magazine, for certain.

  7. Darkwing Rorshach is my favorite from that panel.

  8. Wow @ the Darkwing panel: Optimus Prime, Devil Dinosaur and Moonboy, Darth Vader’s Tie Fighter, Stilt-man (Stilt-man!?!), The Bowler (Mystery Men), the dad from Incredibles. Parademons.

    Man, but what are the two from the bottom right? The creepy two-headed bug and the guy holding his cape like a towel?

  9. @Ben: Not sure about the one with teh towel, but I believe the other one in that corner is Darkwing Duck as Mr. Incredible.

    Devil Dinosaur and Darkwing Duck is my second-favorite from that panel, incidentally.

  10. Roger Rabbit and Darkwing Duck. Two of my three favorite childhood things rolled into one, with the singing sword no less! Is it bad that I remembered Paddywhack’s name and origin halfway through the issue before they showed him? Probably my most looked forward to book every month, but I want a Tuskernini story, dammit.
