This Week in Panels: Week 133

April 8th, 2012 by | Tags: ,

So I didn’t write anything between the last ThWiP installment and this one. I’ll try not to do that again. Sorry.

I’m helped out this week by David Brothers, Space Jawa and Jody. Jody offers the Avengers vs. X-Men and Avengers vs. X-Men: Infinite panels, something I find myself staying away from. I’m rather shocked by how little I care about this event. I think part of it comes from the bluntness of the concept. The events from the past few years haven’t been perfect, but they’re all based on really solid ideas. It just so happens that all of these ideas lead to heroes vs. heroes. And I was cool with that. It’s just that when nearly every single major story is heroes vs. heroes, doing a story that is literally heroes vs. heroes in the title makes it hard for me to care. It’s self-parody and it has me rolling my eyes.

Maybe if it gets some good word of mouth I’ll check it out, but after Fear Itself burned me with its terrible pacing, I need to sit this one out.

Now to the panels.

That Animal Man panel is fitting for this Easter post.

Love that Venom panel. Scream doesn’t make a comic appearance in 15 years and– oop. Later, Scream. It’s also kind of ironic that a character named Scream is a slasher victim.

In other news, check out this wicked headbutt. Seriously, do it.

Goddamn, man.

  1. I thought Hellsing was already finished?

  2. Eddie, no! ;_;

  3. I love that Iinvincible panel. It always seems like I can hear the ting ting ting of his teeth breaking.

  4. Aw, I always liked Scream’s design. Did they really bring her back just to kill her? I really, REALLY wanted her to least met Carnage first. Wonder how he feels about siblings?

  5. this week’s USM was surprisingly brutal. I really like the way things are headed.

  6. I… that was the worst (performed) wrestling headbutt ever. That. Looked. Legitimate. I’m going to have to find that match on Youtube, because now I need to know who won the match. :effort: :effort:
