This Week in Panels: Week 159

October 7th, 2012 by | Tags: , ,

I would post 500 panels and I would post 500 more. Luckily, I don’t have nearly as many today, but thanks to Jody, Gaijin Dan and Was Taters, I have enough.

Today I did my Improv 301 show. It went pretty well. I was kind of shitty for the first few minutes, but it picked up in a scene where I was basically molested on stage in a bit with a plot of, “Your online profile scares me, but my 3 months of eHarmony is about up, so I thought I’d give this date a try.” I also played a parrot on American Idol and did the world’s worst John Stamos impression.

Hey, look at those panels that are happening right there!

This Thursday I’m heading to Comic Con and I need your help. Over the past couple years, I’ve done the Venom Plus Prop Challenge, followed by Juggernaut Plus Prop. I’m not 100% on who I’m going to use this year. I’m up for suggestions, but some of the guys I’m thinking of include:

– Mortal Kombat’s Scorpion
– The Sentry
– UltraMantis Black
– Mayor Mike Haggar
– Larfleeze
– Macho Man Randy Savage

Any thoughts are welcome. Though not Deadpool. It’s too easy.

  1. “I would post 500 panels and I would post 500 more.”

    I see what you did there…

    Ideas for ‘plus prop’ choices:
    * Taskmaster
    * Atomic Robo
    * Stephanie Brown

    Otherwise, I’d second on Larfleeze.

  2. Gotta be Macho Man.

  3. You got me intrigued by Macho Man. But just to mess with your head, I say go with Mike Haggar. I’d veto Larfreeze: Too easy.

  4. Larfleeze isn’t easy. He’s a weird Muppet-looking critter who wants everything. Go with him, man. Also . . . what stuff will you be hitting? I’ll be in the neighborhood as well, scratching my sketch itch.

    Is this the time in Ethan Nicolle’s life where we start backing away slowly? Also: how hard was it to come up with one scene from Avengers Academy?

  5. Macho Man.

  6. Absolutely Macho Man.

  7. Usually with suggestions I just go with the middle ground and mix them all together “Ultra-Mayor Hanzo-Man Randy Haggar aka The Orange Sentry”. Or better yet just go with Clown-9.

  8. Juggernaut and Macho Man fighting over a package of Slim Jims.

    Or if you wanted to go with a really obscure movie-related pun, you could get one of Wanda Maximoff, Juggernaught, and Tommy Shepherd from Young Avengers, and get Mother, Juggs, And Speed.

    Also, much love to Remender for the reference to Pee Wee’s Big Adventure in that Deadpool panel.

  9. @SomerandomGuy: CLOWN-9??!!?? That’s actually genius . . . some whackjob with a humor fetish who’s in Spidey’s newspaper strip (which appears in CSN) and would never have fit in any era of Spider-Man’s history.

  10. I could have said Big Boss but then someone would be confused and drawn MGS Big Boss and not the Robot and lady duo.

  11. Macho Man, dressed as variouse heros/villans.

  12. D-Man plus props. He combines your love of wrestling with your love of super-hero comics, sort of but not really.

  13. Awwww, Krypto as Greyfriar’s Boabby!

    If they ever get round to releasing Action Comics in paperback trade in a timely fashion, maybe I’ll one day read that story.

  14. I read that issue of Action last night. Wow, that was a good story.
