This Week in Panels: Week 82

April 17th, 2011 by | Tags: , , , , , ,

Hello, everybody. This week I’m helped out by David Brothers, Space Jawa and Luis.

In a couple days, I’m taking off to Las Vegas for a bit, but that won’t put a damper on the quantity of posts. In a few hours, I’ll have a big review article going up. Tomorrow I’ll have something really cool to share with you all and while I’m gone, a couple Mortal Marathon guest articles should be popping up. Plus that one guy and that one girl will probably still be posting stuff as usual.

Anyhow, panels.

I think it’s kind of funny that while there are a lot of people who hated on Frankencastle and claimed that it ruined the Punisher, the true “sacrilege” comes from the more down-to-earth version of the character. I personally like what Aaron’s doing with the series, but if someone were to hate it, I’m sure that one panel I posted does more damage to the character than having Frank hang out with a vampire for a year.

Secret Warriors was one of the hardest issues to find a panel for. There’s so much excellence in there, but I didn’t want to give too much away. I’m going to reread the hell out of this comic once it finishes.

  1. I need to re-read Secret Warriors from the beginning, in light of this latest twist. I have a sneaking suspicion that it doesn’t hold up.

    For the Carnage panel, I predicted that you would’ve gone with the “badass” one, that first revealed Mecha-Carnage. Zeb Wells knows what we want.

  2. What’s up with “Shields are not for throwing!!”? Only thing that would’ve made the panel funnier was if Cap screamed, “BAD DAY! BAD DAY! BAD DAY!!!”

    Is . . . is that a bull in boxer shorts???

  3. @Jason: Fighting Avenger is supposed to be Cap’s first mission. They haven’t even named him yet, but they decided to put him in with a reluctant group of soldiers to give him some experience. Out of desperation, he ended up throwing his shield at a Nazi and then realized that was really stupid.

  4. I think my favorite Hellboy panel was the “I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!” one, but the one featured there probably illustrates the overall weirdness of that issue better.

  5. The Secret Warriors reveal doesn’t make very much sense at all given the very little actual information they’ve given us about Kraken, but it’s a shame because he made a really awesome Destro to Strucker’s Cobra Commander. I’m going to miss that book a lot, I think Hickman writes an awesome grand conspiracy on hallucinogens.
