The return of Batman 666!!! Also, it looks like his butterfly collar goes higher than his eyes, effectively cutting off his vision everywhere except right in front of him…

I am ashamed & embarrassed that I read this comic but this is too good to ignore

Panel Picks: Ol’ Blood & Guts

Guess the hot new thing in comics this past month was out & out ultra violence. Check after the jump for what people lost which body parts in some of the comic’s biggest mainstream titles. God speed!

You should really, really be reading this book. For this homage, if nothing else.

Hulk #1 variant cover

The Incredible Hulky Kong?

The United States of Murder, Inc #1

Definitely hooked on the new Bendis & Oeming book about what appears to be how the United States ceded the east coast of the country to the Mafia. With this stark, issue closing image, now maybe we know why.

Thor God of Thunder #21

All the Galactus barf you can handle.

Thor God of Thunder #21

THAT BASTARD PUNCHED ME STRAIGHT THROUGH THE EARTH AND BROKE THE MOON. Write it in the sky with gossamer teardrops, that is poetry.

Waaaay more after the jump, man. You don’t even know bro. Continue reading

Panel Picks: The Dead & The Dying

The one Marvel character I’ve never seen outside of a Capcom fighting game shows himself in Mighty Avengers #2 and looks…AWESOME. How are street level heroes going to deal with a pan-dimensional nightmare? With punching, probably.

Not a great week for upper echelon Marvel characters, as Thor just gets the taste slapped out his mouth…
20131015-090529.jpg

…whereas Black Bolt gets chokeslammed by a gigantic purple death god.
20131015-090537.jpg

This book is terrible! But the cover is pretty sweet.
20131015-090545.jpg

Then in some other timeline/continuity, Thor pays homage to the 1968 USA Olympic team

I had ZERO idea the Ultimate Universe was going straight to crazy town. And then they lopped off Tony Starks scalp.

“Oops, I slipped” is NOT what you want to hear when having forced brain surgery.

Screen Shot 2013-07-17 at 9.03.51 PM

This right here is EXACTLY why you should be reading Young Avengers.

Screen Shot 2013-07-17 at 9.04.10 PM

He’s right; those really are the best reasons.

If you enjoyed that, hit the jump for a truly STUPEFYING amount of panels, that I’ve been hoarding and not uploading because lazy. Continue reading
