This Week in Panels: Week 189

May 5th, 2013 by | Tags: , , ,

Great week for me. I just became an uncle for the first time, welcoming Jack Walter Jasper into the world. I don’t want to jinx it, but I’m hoping one day his apathy inadvertently causes my death and drives him to be selfless out of guilt. Then I know I’ve succeeded as an uncle.

I’m helped out by Gaijin Dan, Space Jawa and Matlock. The other regular contributors are off starting their own group, ThWiP East.

Here are some panels. One of them includes an amalgam of Dr. Doom, Loki, Ultron and Red Skull. Another shows how silly Batman looks without black eye makeup under his mask.

I really wish that Sonic/Mega Man crossover didn’t have to end with Wily and Eggman losing, but… yeah. It’ll be fun while it lasts.

The new Batwing is definitely worth a read. As of this issue, it’s a new direction/jumping on point, featuring Lucias Fox’s son Lucas taking over. He also fights a centaur who has the lower body of a lion and the upper body of a lion-man. It’s crazy.

Gaijin Dan was disappointed that the best part of One-Punch Man was a sequence that couldn’t be shown in one panel, but luckily there’s a gif going around of it.

To play you out, here’s a remix of “The Dazzler” Daniel Bryan talking about bears. On the kid-oriented WWE show Saturday Morning Slam, Bryan did commentary and mentioned how he once wrestled a bear. This opened the floodgates and he spent the rest of the show making bear puns. Ergo, remix.

Bryan’s also laid down some rap skills recently.

What an awesome human being.

  1. Daniel Bryan: The most muscular hippie.

  2. *raises glass to Gavuncle*

  3. So . . . no The Movement? I understand. Gail Simone is trying to set up interesting stuff, and it should be fun to see it development, but I understand if you’re not into it.

    I’m guessing Sonic/Mega Man is the only place to see two old guys stroke each other without getting squicked.

  4. Matlock’s Injustice panel has possibly the most relaxed-looking death face I’ve ever seen that wasn’t an outright smile.
    “He went out the way many would’ve wanted, Bruce…exactly stoned enough.”

  5. And again I question: Is Sonic/Megaman Worlds Collide a serious crossover or just an excuse for Eggman/Wily hilarity?

  6. Congrats. If only the newborn had been named “Jim”. And, y’know. British.


  7. I’m loving quiet moments like the one highlighted here for World Trigger. It’s like, sure, nothing ever seems to really happen in the series, but it’s going to seem super nice all the while. That and I’m weirdly fond of the =3= face, which successfully got transferred over from Daisuke’s last series (and main character) Super Dog Rilienthal.

  8. Dat Batman face. I keep laughing at it. That is the face of a hapless adult reacting to wacky hijinks in a show on Nick, not the face of reacting to death
