This Week in Panels: Week 90

June 12th, 2011 by | Tags: , , ,

Bare your teeth, put on your pouches and sharpen your spikes because we’re entering the 90’s!

This week I’m joined by David Brothers, Was Taters and Space Jawa. Due to David dropping the Cipher, his Wednesday article which lists just what books I’m reading for the week, Jawa and I have a bit of overlap in the Flashpoint department that I probably should have warned him about before he scanned his images. I read everything but the Aquaman book and he read everything but the Frankenstein book, so a couple of them will have panels from both of us.

In regards to Flashpoint, Deathstroke the Terminator being a pirate is an idea so perfect that I can’t believe it’s never been done before. I wish his post-reboot self would remain a pirate and continue his adventures on the high seas, but that’s not in the cards.

Boy, that Mephisto text is hard to read. Try viewing the image and it’ll give you a slightly bigger image.

I’m digging the Flashpoint stuff so far, although what it leads to has a strong possibility of being a complete car wreck. Despite that, I’m preparing to read and review all 52 #1’s coming this September. I must have done something terrible to hate myself like this.

To counteract that pain, I’ve been doing a little research for a list article that should be going up at some point in the next few days. It has to do with this:

  1. In Space Jawa’s pic for Citizen Cold…is that Mr. Freeze from BtAS or is that really what he’s really like right now? I know Flashpoint is screwing stuff up so…whiskey tango foxtrot?

  2. Pirate Deathstroke post-reboot would be pretty awesome. Normal Deathstroke I really don’t care about. Pirate Deathstroke? I’d buy that. Be even cooler if they then teamed him up with Black Manta – you can’t tell me Aquaman wouldn’t benefit from having Cap’n Deathstroke added to his rogues gallery and having to fight him every now and then.

    Black Manta: You know who’s stupid?
    Cap’n Deathstroke: Aquaman?
    Black Manta: Aquaman!
    Cap’n Deathstroke: Yar!

  3. @CapoDelBandito: I think they decided to use Flashpoint to incorporate BTAS Mr. Freeze into the DCU.

    Loved the Frankenstein book – the Creature Commandos were a welcome sight, and any comic where Hitler gets shot in the face is one you have to have rspect for.
