Panel Picks – The Greatest Fight in Comic Book History

GO AHEAD TELL ME I’ M WRONG I’LL WAIT. (From The Defenders #7). This book has just been so good thus far & I’m worried it’s gonna decline rapidly once Bendis heads off to the Distinguished Competition (maybe he already has?). Ah well.  Least we get this epic multi-page rampage. How amazing is David Marquez, by the way? Damn.

I’M A MF’ING STARKILLAAAAAAAAA

You’ve got 6 weeks or so to check out some dope new art from DC area artists inspired by Star Wars and/or The Last Jedi but all the cool kids (and me) will be there this Friday. Be there or get dropped into a Sarlaac Pit.

Holiday Starkillers celebrates the cultural phenomena of George Lucas’ epic space opera. In painting, photography, and sculpture, six rebel scum artists explore Star Wars’ films, thematic parallels, early conceptualizations, and astounding mass merchandising. Featuring works by Andrew Wodzianski, Scott G. Brooks, Chris Bishop, Greg Ferrand, Jared Davis, and Steve Strawn.

Exhibition runs December 11 – January 9, 2016.
