This Week in Panels: Week 85

May 8th, 2011 by | Tags: ,

Hey there, folks. Since it’s been a while since I’ve explained the concept of this weekly series, here’s the gist for new people: Every week, me, some readers and occasionally Mr. David Brothers put together a collection of panels from each comic that we’ve read collectively. The idea is to sum up the comic in one panel. If you were trying to sell someone on the issue while giving them an idea of what the comic is about without overly spoiling them, what would that panel be?

I have stuff from David, Was Taters and Space Jawa. Jawa also sent me an image from Free Comic Book Day, but I’m going to save all of those for next week.

Also, apologies for the lack of content from me in the past couple weeks. Been playing a lot of Mortal Kombat while catching up on the rest of season one of the Avengers cartoon off YouTube. There are like seven episodes aired in Australia that they held off on in America because there’s a lot of Asgard stuff going on and they wanted to save it for after the Thor movie was released.

You know what’s kind of fucked about that cartoon? Chemistro got to make his animated debut before Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

(Xombi #2 was really from a couple weeks ago, but I can’t say no to Taters. She’d kill me)

Aw, Magneto. I wish I could hug him based on that panel alone.

I was considering getting the Avengers Academy 80-Page Giant because Academy is one of my favorite comics these days, but then I saw the $7.99 price tag. Jesus Christ, Marvel. Speaking of Academy, I just noticed that Tigra is in the background of that above panel when she’s supposed to be in her quarters banging Giant Man. I can probably earn myself a no-prize with that.

For those who haven’t seen Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, here’s a sample of what it has to offer:

Incredulous Thor gets me every time.

  1. I am so looking forward to when the new Avengers episodes go up on the XD website so I have a chance to watch them.

  2. Is that Ambush Bug appearing in a regular DCU title that’s not a weird trip out parody?

    And in UXF was that who I think it was supposed to be in that picture at the end or is the whole issue supposed to be ambiguous?

  3. @CapoDelBandito: That is Ambush Bug and he has been acting as light comic relief/transport for the Doom Patrol. If you know Thunderbolts at Marvel: he is the team’s Man-Thing.

    I am going to miss (half of) that book. Man it was wildly inconsistent.

  4. Annihilators interests me greatly. That, however, is some ugly-ass art. I may have to pass.

  5. The 80-page giant was originally supposed to be a 3-issue miniseries, so look at it this way: You’re saving somewhere between 3-4 dollars in its current format.

  6. What Prodigal said. It’s a very thick book, so it’s not a rip-off. It’s an Arcade story, so you know the beginning, middle, and end, but it’s still pretty good. The main problem is that it gives virtually no explanation about what the deal is with the Young Allies, which made me wonder if they edited out some material when the format switched.

    Are we liking Fear Itself? I’m kind of liking Fear Itself…

    As well as FI: Home Front. (Or Frontline, or whatever they’re calling it this time.) I’m surprised you aren’t getting this for the Agents of Atlas back-up.

    Hey, is that really the first Deadpool Annual that they’ve had? That’s surprising. Even more surprising? It was good!

  7. In that first Annihilators panel… is that one guy (Quasar? Second in from the right) making fun of Beta Ray Bill’s face?

  8. Dude can’t help it if he doesn’t have lips.

  9. I nearly bought the Avengers Academy 80 pager despite the price tag. What really prevented me from taking the plunge is I suspect it might be collected with the regular Avengers Academy trades, and I’m buying that series in trades, so don’t want to spend money on it twice. If it turns out I’m wrong I can try to pick it up from back issues somewhere.
