This Week in Panels: Week 97

July 31st, 2011 by | Tags: , , ,

Hello, neighbor! This week I’m accompanied by Was Taters and Space Jawa as I inch closer and closer to Week 100. Which is good because I finally came up with an idea of what to do with it.

I’ve been lax on the writing lately as I’ve been trying to finish watching every WWE Summerslam PPV for the countdown series, which will start up this week. I only have two left to sit through and I’m saving 1994 for last. That one features the Undertaker wrestling his evil twin while Leslie Nielson and George Kennedy try to get to the bottom of it. Wrestling is fucking weird.

As a Deadpool fan, I say skip the Decoy. It’s a blatant leftover story from Deadpool Team-Up that they never did anything with. Wolverine’s character is very off, Deadpool’s isn’t really on-point either and the main gag of the comic is something that Fabian Nicieza did in a far more memorable fashion back during Cable/Deadpool. A gag that is spoiled on the cover.

The final few pages of Uncanny X-Force are insane. I don’t know about you, but I’d read the hell out of an Iron Ghost comic.

As I get ready for the Summerslam Countdown, my YouTube hookup Bearnt! has been sending me some random clips. Here’s one that has nothing to do with Summerslam, but everything to do with why I love life.

  1. I feel the same way about Decoy, but Deadpool MAX and Uncanny X-Force were awesome as they usually are(except for #9 of both), so 2/3 aint bad

    Now get to working on that Summerslam, so you can tell us how underrated SS01 is, and how totally overrated Rock/Lesnar was.

  2. @Jeremy: Now get to working on that Summerslam, so you can tell us how underrated SS01 is, and how totally overrated Rock/Lesnar was.

    You’re half right.

  3. Hey Gavok, I never got your opinion on the current Way Deadpool series. Personally I like it, in a wacky way, but I know a lot of fans of ol’ Wade Wilson hate every thing about it.

    Where do you fit into things?

  4. @Jeremy: It’s on very thin ice with me. I keep thinking “Okay, I’m giving this one more issue/arc to get better” and keep giving myself excuses to keep going. Since the current arc is a more introspective one, which could redeem it, I’m leaving it in Way’s hands.

    I was extremely interested with his Deadpool run after that one Wolverine Origins arc and the first year of the ongoing. Now I get the feeling that he’s run out of ideas and is coasting as much as possible.

  5. Didn’t they do that Umar joke in Defenders by Giffen?

  6. Man, Remender is on a streak here. If you told me I’d be enjoying the hell out of X-Force and Venom books five years ago, I’d have laughed at you.

  7. @MarkPoa: It’s a follow-up on that.
