This Week in Panels: Week 152

August 19th, 2012 by | Tags: , , , ,

Ah, what a difference a year makes. Last year, I was scrambling to try and get the Summerslam Countdown done in time for the big show that I was so excited to see (I failed that deadline, natch). This year, I chose to watch 21 Jump Street with my brother instead of checking it out. From what I understand, I didn’t miss much other than Antonio Cesaro/Claudio Castagnoli winning the US title on the internet pre-show. At the same time, I don’t feel like DVRing tomorrow’s Raw and I paid money to watch last week’s TNA PPV. Crazy times.

This week my backup include Was Taters, Jody, Gaijin Dan, Space Jawa and Nawid.

Sad to hear that Avengers Academy is getting canceled, but not surprised. It lost direction pretty quickly once Fear Itself ended.

This week starts the King of Trios mega series of articles. Here’s a cool match from the 2010 tournament, one of the 87 trios tournament matches to be featured over the last five years. Watch it because it features a giant Viking fighting a tiny, tiny man dressed as a dragon.

Oh, hey, and there’s our new WWE US Champion in there.

  1. This is a fun way to sample stories but it became even more fun when I allowed myself to skip panels that seemed very unlikely to interest me.

    It’s too bad about Avengers Academy. What I’ve seen of it has been surprisingly good – enough for me to scoop up a bunch of issues via a ComiXology sale. But if Gavok says it lost direction, maybe it’s for the best. Hopefully, it will end well.

    Wonder Woman – So pretty. So novel. So what.
    Walking Dead – Dropped, but Carl looks older. I wonder if that’s deliberate.
    Daredevil – Allred just ain’t for me.
    Captain Atom – Not the Cap I love but interesting stuff. Not enough to buy.
    Captain Marvel – Nice captions. Sounds very interesting. Get cheaper, Marvel.
    Rorschach – Looks damned good. Maybe when there’s a sale or collected volume.

  2. What, no Spiderstroke the Goblinator? I’m disappointed.

  3. Batman Inc 3 is out? Nnargh, I hope my local shop still has a copy…

  4. Wonder Woman’s one of my favorite books right now, and this issue was particularly good.

  5. So what’s with Supergirl’s outfit having a tray on her pelvis? Is that her Chasity belt?

  6. @SomerandomGuy:
    It is their nod to the old super panties.

  7. @West:

    Nodding at panties: it’s the cape comics way.
