This Week in Panels: Week 153

August 26th, 2012 by | Tags: , ,

Heyo. It’s time for that panel thing that I do every Sunday. My contributors are Gaijin Dan, Jody, Space Jawa and Was Taters with the weather.

Jody didn’t send me Amazing Spider-Man this time around, which only goes with what I’ve been hearing that the latest issue was all kinds of terrible. Meanwhile, I, Vampire is great fun this week with an awkward team-up with Stormwatch as they face the unique threat of “zombie vampire vampire-hunters”.

Over the past week, it’s been announced that Nintendo Power has been canceled. I share the same sentiment as many on the internet in that I haven’t even looked at one of those in about ten years and by all accounts, it should have been canned years ago, but at the same time… I feel like my inner-child just got punched in the stomach. It’s like when I found out that the big arcade hangout from my growing years was done away with and turned into a Dick’s sporting goods store.

I suggest watching this 3-year-old review of old-school Nintendo Power from James Rolfe, the Angry Video Game Nerd. Man, those were some great times, even if it was blatant propaganda.

  1. Neat Venom panel.

    Great video.

  2. Huh. I read the dialogue for that Venom panel as completely backwards three times in a row without noticing. Thank goodness for OCB and its demands that I remember the wording JUST RIGHT or I might’ve gotten it all wrong.
    …Wait. I liked it better the wrong way.
    Don’t get me wrong, I LIKE Venom: the Comic Book, but it has too many “I am a pompous nutcase let me sneer at you obnoxiously” monologuer villains and almost no personality from the suit beyond “you are angry and I shall make you angrier while serving as a metaphor for alcohol.” Christ, I think at least two versions of Iron Man’s armour have gotten more characterization than that.

  3. Love that One Piece panel.

  4. I like the callback to Cyclops’ comment about having more than 26 plans to beat the Juggernaut (during Fear Itself) in that UXM #17 panel. To think, people have been complaining about Summers’ descent into Magneto territory. They may have been thinking about the wrong X-Villain.

  5. So is Krang still a brain, or is that what he really looks like now?

  6. @MegaSpiderMan: He’s a brain. Like in the cartoon, he wears a robot body suit to get around, only he looks less ridiculous. Normally, he wears a large military coat to cover up his brain window with the collar covering up his speaker-like mouth.
