This Week in Panels: Week 154

September 3rd, 2012 by | Tags: , , ,

Hey hey hey. Now for a break from all the indy wrestling talk for more panels. I’m joined by Jody, Space Jawa, Gaijin Dan and Nawid. Both Jawa and I represent the April spotlight issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but there’s something I need to get off my chest.

At first glance, no matter how many times I see this image, I initially think she’s flipping them the bird. But this isn’t about covers. Let’s get with some panels.

Oh, man! Doing the last-minute proofread, the first two panels are kind of amazing next to each other. I did not plan that.

  1. “At first glance, no matter how many times I see this image, I initially think she’s flipping them the bird.”

    Really? Because I didn’t get that impression at all when looking at that cover.

  2. Wow, I’ve actually read most of these issues. Let’s go.

    Aquaman #12- Mera, Mera, Mera… When your original role in your husband’s life involves playing the “honey trap”, he’s allowed to have a few secrets.

    Avengers vs. X-Men: Versus #5- Someone’s forgotten all about the Xavier Protocols, hasn’t she?

    Avenging Spider-Man #11- More Parker guilt. That being said, I think that they’re hinting that Aunt May has always known her nephew’s secret in this issue.

    Axe Cop: President of the World #2- If it wasn’t for that panel, I would have assumed that Axe Cop had become Mecha-Axe Cop

    Captain Marvel #3- This is either going to be utterly awesome (“It’s not the past, it’s Thundra’s alternate reality!”) or really stupid. I’m putting money on stupid.

    FF #21 (Jody’s pick)- *ScansDaily voice* “LOLOMGWTF! New OTP!”
    *Regular voice* She’s like an amalgam of MJ, Black Cat and the AU warrior princess Lady Dorma. Could be interesting.”

    FF #21 (Gavin’s pick)- Dick move, Hickman, dick move. For all of the joy that I’ve had reading his run, using Crystal and Ronan for the “obligatory downer ending” (while damselling her even more than necessary), really sucked.

    Flash Annual #1- I have no idea what’s going on, in a bad way. And I actually appreciate random chaos in my comics. This is the Little Brittle of comics.

    Green Lantern Annual #1- Dead Lantern, or Deadest Lantern? If it means that Ryan and David will sit in Comics Limbo for a while, I approve.

    Hulk #57- Now this is some good comics chaos, MC Pee Pants-worthy chaos. This could have been improved by using the drunk, surly Machine Man, but…

    Journey Into Mystery #642- I read this and thought, “If Loki had received more hugs as a child, the Avengers would have never been created (storyline-wise.)” It’s going to suck when he returns to evil.

    Ultimate Comics X-Men #15- “Mutants with guns” never ends well. I’m expecting dozens of pouches per character to appear next issue.

    Uncanny X-Force #30- Wandering around in a van with Marvel’s preeminent sociopath, paedophile and troll… I got nothing. If there was ever a heel turn that needed to go off without a hitch, it’s this one.

    Wolverine and the X-Men #15- If any of the Bamfs begin to smoke, should I seek shelter and cover my head?

  3. Ro, Ro, Ro. Your husband/ex-husband has plans to deal with Galactus if he were to land in Wakanda. Of course he’s gonna have fallbacks if he had to fight you. Oh, right . . . Namor wrecked Wakanda. I guess “Old-Timey Water Guy Jacked Up On Cosmic Power” didn’t get a second draft in T’Challa’s contingency list.

  4. I thought Avenging Spider-Man, while beating the grease stain where the horse’s corpse long disintegrated, was one of the best stories I’ve read this year, and not just because Tucker Stone whined about it.

    That sort of manipulative downer crap that Hickman does really makes me think he’s unqualified to clean up Brian’s mess. But who is really qualified to clean up Brian’s mess?

  5. T’Challa didn’t think out how to put a choke hold strong enough on someone that slippery, Not only that that chin is like a weapon on it’s own.
    Though with all this FF peter talk you wonder if they ever going to update that spider-man’s love life picture with the newest fling.

  6. That Spider-Man story helped me feel like Peter was a real jerk for not telling his Aunt what happened. But I guess Spider-Man is in large part about how people justify the lies they tell – Spider-Man is like a serial cheater who never tells his wife, and tells himself that he’s just defending her from getting hurt . . . she’s got a weak heart so he’s actually saving her life . . . and the best writers on the series get that and get everything they can out of it, the irresponsibility behind the “Parker luck”.
