This Week in Panels: Week 112

November 13th, 2011 by | Tags: , ,

This week I’m joined only by Space Jawa. It’s a somber week of panels, as Darkwing Duck meets its end through the final issue. There are rumors that Disney is going to try to start an imprint within Marvel and I really, really hope it works out.

My comic shop got double copies of Point One, so they did the sensible thing and cut the price in half. Even then, I found I just didn’t care enough to pick it up. I heard the Nova stuff was terrible.

Also, remember, if you see a panel in a new comic and want to see it represented, by all means send me a line.

Man. Uncanny X-Force is so good that I didn’t even notice until much later that Deadpool wasn’t in that issue.

On a completely different note, I’ve recently discovered that there are a LOT of metal covers of “Kiss From a Rose” by Seal on YouTube. Like, far more than I’d ever expect. It’s kind of awesome. Here’s my personal favorite of the bunch.

…even I’m not sure why I was looking this up.

  1. Ultimate spider man panel seems like force exposition or someone scolding Miles for something he did. Could Harley taking up a role in the Dukes of hazards is a step up from Sareena sister outfit. So how long until Harley becomes Eddie brock of DC?

  2. I think that Uncanny X-Force is quietly having one of the best arcs of the year. It’s absolutely fantastic.

  3. – If they hadn’t had done them on the shows themselves every once in awhile, I’d have held the life lesson/awwww moments against DD and Ducktales, there just seemed to be a bunch of them strung together towards the end. Did like the one shown here with Scrooge and when Darkwing decided to pull Morgana back, though. Here’s hoping for some kind of monthly anthology of DD/Ducktales/Rescue Rangers from Marvel.

    – Please tell me that isn’t Gwen Stacy in the USM panel.

    – I thought about buying Deathstroke for a monthly violent fun book, then I saw he was fighting Truckulese from Venture Brothers. That was a little too much, even for me.

  4. @Lou: It is. The basic idea of the new USM is that Miles got his powers and was too afraid to use them, feeling that there’s already a Spider-Man, so let him do the hero thing. Then he heard about the commotion from Death of Spider-Man and snuck off to check it out. He saw Peter’s final moments, briefly asked a distraught Gwen about who he was and then went on to feel really guilty. If he hadn’t shirked responsibility, Spider-Man wouldn’t have died.

    Then he showed up at the funeral from Ultimate Fallout. When Gwen walked by, he tearfully asked, “Why did he do it? Why did he become Spider-Man?” Hard to say if it was to her or just to himself, but she gave him a cold glare and walked away, only to storm back over and that panel happened.

  5. Sounds reasonable. I guess my real confusion is over at what point she went from being Ultimate Punk Gwen to (what looks like) the normal 616 version of the character. I read she came back to life at some point, but the last I actually saw of her was Ult. Carnage killing her.

  6. Call me snookered, but I got “Point One.” I didn’t have any major problems with it. The Van Lente story with the estranged twins looks to be promising.

    I didn’t get Avenging Spider-Man . . . there’s going to be a Black Friday sale, and I want to try and snag a blank cover then. I did read a preview copy at NYCC, and I have to ask: did they call it the “Staten Island Bridge”? It’s the Verrazano-Narrows Bridger. Given that Marvel is NYC-based, you would think that would be corrected. Now . . . Moloids attacking the marathon? That’s comedy.

  7. @Jason:

    Not that you’re wrong about the Verrazano, but it’s also implied the bridge in Avenging Spidey connects Manhattan to SI. I too was confused by this.

  8. I’m not fond of the idea of the Moloids speaking, let alone English, but I’d kinda like for Marvel to decide if they can or can’t talk. They’ve been shown many times over the years but the most recent appearances in FF, and Incredible Hulk doth seem too consistent.

  9. “If he hadn’t shirked responsibility, Spider-Man wouldn’t have died.” wait you mean if miles didn’t pull a peter and shrug off becoming Black Spider-man, Peter would have lived how? He was shot by Punisher what would Miles could have done in that scenario that spider-man could have also done to preserved himself? It’s like berating the player on not preventing a companion from a “Cutscene Death”.
    Also I kinda forgiven Harley looks for horrible rumors of what the new joker looks like and having to hang around calling that hot topic guy Mr. J would make people rage more than red blue haired Harley.

  10. I think a mark of how good Uncanny X-Force is would be that I already knew AOA Nightcrawler was joining the team eventually thanks to solicitations, yet I was still totally surprised and elated when the AOA cavalry showed up.

  11. @SomeRandomBookguy: It wasn’t just Punisher’s bullet that killed him. It was the exhaustion that came after it. He fought off a bunch of his villains until he had nothing left in the gas tank. Presumably, if Miles was there to help, he would have had a better chance of surviving the ordeal, though his friend does say that there’s an equal chance that Miles would have died as well.

  12. I hope a Wells-written Spider-man book lasts. I’ve always wondered why they didn’t put him on Amazing (granted, the last few writers have been perfect fits for that book themselves).

  13. @Gavok: Granted, I’m bias on the matter considering my feelings towards Death of Spider-Man in the first place, but I find it off-putting to learn that after a poorly put together story where Peter didn’t have to die in the first place, Bendis then goes ahead and says ‘oh, yeah, by the way, if the new Spider-Man had intervened during Death of Spider-Man, the old Spider-Man might still be alive’. It’s like salt has been rubbed into the wound and pretty much killed most the hope I had left of giving the new version a second chance somewhere down the road.

  14. @Space Jawa: The only hope I have for this series now is for one Miles doesn’t become Emo-Spider-man and two for a Team up series with Anti-Venom called “Ebony and Ivory”.
