Panel Picks: Hey hey I thought I published this last month




I still can’t wrap my head around comic book theology but at least this dude gets it. Mister MIrace #6


BatKnight taken down a peg (Batman #39)


…wait, what? (Deathstroke #27)


Heyyy, Adam Warlock! Alright. ( Guardians of the Galaxy #150)


Soak it all in. This series is weird as hell. (Dastardly & Muttley #5)


This screams “EXXTREME!” AND “’90’s”. Ugh.

Panel Picks – Superheroes Are Just As Gross As You or I (Mostly You, Never Me)


C’mon Karnak! You gross. (Secret Warriors #9)


Hand infestation (Old Man Logan #31)


The REAL darkest timeline. 2099? Ugh (X-Men Blue #16)


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 want to go to there

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:


I’d go see this band in a heartbeat


I just like this bonkers design


Yo! God’s dead, let’s snatch his ride


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


Am 100% on board with all Batman rogues gallery redesigns, especially ones that are this good.


Maestro fixin’ to turn old man logan into a greasy pile of ben-gay & metal bones

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!


Eltingville Club #1

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.

The gore you came for is after the jump Continue reading

All New Ghost Rider #2

Remember when Mr. Hyde wasn’t abslutely terrifying?

Deadpool #27

Gimmicks aside, still cool to see who you can pick out in the crowd. Apparently it’s the comic book cover featuring the most characters…ever.

Wolverine & The X-Men

Hope my child isn’t Apocalypse.
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…

…whereas Black Bolt gets chokeslammed by a gigantic purple death god.

This book is terrible! But the cover is pretty sweet.

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


Panel Picks: Panal-phenalia

Yay, Panel Picks is back! How long will this resurrection last? Who knows! Enjoy it while it lasts!

Cover of the week, hands down.

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

Panel Picks: Back With an Oversized Vengeance to Steal Your Brain & Stab You In the Eyes

So, update on this: Panel Picks was going to be a weekly feature that slipped to bi-weekly due to a)laziness on my part and b)trying to force the issue.  ‘Cause hey,you’re not going to have excellent picks every week. BUT I’M MAKING UP FOR IT THIS WEEK! 21 panels for your perusal.  Peruse away friends!


Excellent repurposing of the iconic Days of Future Past cover from Uncanny X-Men 141 (Uncanny Avengers #4)


Ezekiel’s got a tiger bro. Deal with it. The Walking Dead #108


Eternal Warrior, perhaps. Eternal genius, hardly. Let me wear exploding shells (what) on my sleeve while I run from gun battle to gun battle! Idiot. (Archer & Armstrong #8)


I like fun Hawkeye, not aggro SuperBro Hawkeye. (Uncanny X-Men #3)


A delightful homage. Now I want marshmallows & gingerbread. (Chew #32)


Deena Pilgrim is a foul-mouthed little monster and she may be the best female character in comics. (Powers Bureau #2)


Why so glum, champ? You’ll get ’em next time slugger! (Age of Ultron #1)


I don’t think your shard’s going to do you much good against an unkillable robot army, especially when you’re left arm’s all jacked up. (Age of Ultron #2)


Incredibly clever and I want this to be my wallpaper. (Wolverine & The X-Men #recent)

A TON more after the jump, including some ultra violence, gross eye-play, a new perspective on an old friend, the future of the Marvel Universe and a possible trip to ass-rape jail.
