This Week in Panels: Week 252

July 20th, 2014 by | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Gavok: BTW, after Week 250, I’m taking a break from Week in Panels. I have a lot of real world responsibilities now and don’t have time for it.

Space Jawa: What would it take for someone to take over for you?

Gavok: Why, you want to?

Space Jawa: Yeah.

Gavok: Sure, have at it.


And that’s the abridged version of how I became the new host of This Week In Panels.

Oh, and then Gavok went out, bought a cigar, lit it, and then reached through the internet so he could put it out in my face. I think because he was trying to make a tradition out of it or something? I don’t know.


Anyway, joining me this week are Gaijin Dan, Matlock, TheAnarCHris, and Gavok himself. Gavok, Matlock, and I are all in agreement that the art on She-Hulk continues to be terrible, though I’m the only one who managed to get all the way through it. I’ll probably hold off on further issues until they get someone better, though. Because as it stands, I’m feeling inclined to think that I could do a better job.

Believe me when I say that I don’t make such statements lightly.

But let’s get to some panels, shall we?

Gavok also provided another panel from WWE Superstars that he’d be embarrassed to share without context, but he’ll be writing an article about it someday.

Me, I have no qualms about sharing it simply because of how hilariously terrible it is out of context.


I have zero idea what’s supposed to be going on here, I just know it makes me laugh every time I look at it.


In other news, Weird Al’s latest album came out this week. I peg Tacky, Sports Song, and Mission Statement as stand outs.

The best song of the album, though, has without a doubt got to be Word Crimes. I have no familiarity with the original song it’s parodying, but it is really catchy and most the internet could probably stand to listen to it at least once or twice.

  1. The full title of the Borderlands comic is “Borderlands: The Fall of Fyrestone”.

  2. @smashpro1: Is it? I was running under the impression that “The Fall of Fyrestone” was just the name of the opening story arc.

  3. @Space Jawa: It’s just a miniseries, just like Borderlands: Origins was back in 2012.

  4. @smashpro1: Consider me educated and the error corrected.
