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.

Trailer Park – Deadpool 2: Happy Little Trees

Time to break out your soylent green, betty white and mennen black! The first look at the upcoming Deadpool 2 is here, just wrapped up in a calming, fuzzy Bob Ross tribute.

Looks like they are going in a…slightly different direction with this film.

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Panel Picks – and with the dinosaur on drums

A few covers, a fantasy band, a floor that promises not to eat you, a winery in Hell, a shocking reveal..lots of neat stuff going on in comics lately. Here’s what caught my eye:

That’s one way of looking at it, Ultron.

Trailer Park – Black Panther

Looks wildly impressive. Though probably the most impressive feat of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not the epic, 24 film slate(when all is said & done that is.  Imagine THAT box set)  but the fact that people actually now care about formerly C & D level heroes. C’mon, nobody was angling for a Black Panther book 5 years ago. Or Ant-Man. Or the Guardians of the Galaxy. Or Captain Marvel. Shit, even Iron Man was languishing a bit before RDJ spruced him up.  So, your gambit worked; kudos Marvel. Now get your comic’s shit together please and thank you.

 

 

Panel Picks – Wall-eyed Wednesday

I think DC needs to dig into their pockets a bit and get their artists some rulers.
