Probably all the other panels will line up against us. That’s all right. These things gotta happen every five years or so, ten years. Helps to get rid of the bad blood. Been ten years since the last one. You know, you gotta stop them at the beginning. Like they should have stopped Hitler at Munich, they should never let him get away with that, they was just asking for trouble.
Avengers vs. X-Men #4
By Jonathan Hickman, John Romita Jr., Scott Hanna, Laura Martin, & Chris Eliopoulos
I love that old and simmering grudges will bubble up to the surface in these giant fights. It adds a little bit of texture to these events.
Saucer Country #3
By Paul Cornell, Ryan Kelly, Giulia Brusco, & Sal Cipriano
Those damn rabbits with their wee beady eyes are creepy.
Fury MAX #2
By Garth Ennis, Goran Parlov, Lee Loughridge, & Rob Steen
Yes, that is a dude jamming his finger into Nick Fury’s eye hole in the middle of a fight, why do you ask?
By Nathan Edmondson, Nic Klein, & Jeff Powell
I love the strength of storytelling in these nine panels. No need for words, no need for anything flashy. Just classic comic booking.
Winter Soldier #5
By Ed Brubaker, Butch Guice, Stefano Gaudiano or Tom Palmer, Bettie Breitweiser, & Joe Caramagna
What you don’t know is, Doctor Doom is a giant, secret room in his castle where he keeps obsessive track of costume changes, name changes, and rank changes. Lots of white boards and cork boards. His push pin budget is ridiculous.
The Shade #8
By James Robinson, Jill Thompson, Trish Mulvihill, & Todd Klein
They don’t make opium dens like they used to.
Fantastic Four #605.1
By Jonathan Hickman, Mike Choi, Cris Peter, & Clayton Cowles
This was both fist pumpingly awesome and giggle inducingly silly. Jonathan Hickman is awesome.
By Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples, & Fonografiks
What’s worse: saying another woman’s name in bed or on your deathbed?
