— Conor Kilpatrick



  1. I was really expecting an Indy “mileage” quip accompanying the Barracuda panel. You always keep me guessing, Kilpatrick.

    That Teen Titans page is so sad! Is that a dream Tim’s having? I don’t read the book.

    After that table meeting in Uncanny Avengers, I realized that I had forgotten that Steve put Alex “in charge”. If Cap is in the room, he is in charge. “A man is whatever room he is in.”

    Also, … Bat-Cow makes me cry. I really hope they do something with her after Morrison’s done. Not sure what that would be, but I’ll take anything that doesn’t involve getting ground into beef.

  2. I knew that the Young Avengers panel would make the cut.

  3. The barrel of that gun is Joke size

    • Think of that panel as being from the perspective of the guy about to get shot. I’m fairly certain if somebody is shoving a gun in your face the barrel is going to seem like the largest thing in the universe.

  4. When I saw those FF panels, I thought it was an homage to The Torch burning off Namor’s beard in his first modern appearance

    Anyone else?

  5. Chris Burnham’s version Batman may be my favorite Batman. Also, Olivier Coipel should never not draw the avengers.

  6. Seriously?!? The panel of “Professor” Lumpkin being interrupted while teaching the kids something about birds and bees didn’t make It?

  7. That moment in East of West was the capper of what was an amazing issue. There was a lot more about the issue I liked that could be a Panel of the Week moment. The one where the guy with the eye patch bulges his eye, or the one where Pestilence is mocking people who are dying. But that moment of ‘Company is comin’ soon!’ just gave me chills.

    • I read it early in the morning and had to stop myself from bursting into my brothers room whilst he was asleep and shouting it at him.

  8. The bat cow was the perfect antidote, to the over pitched waves of sentimentality coming of the bat books.
    loved it.

  9. Tyrion is ok, but I thought everyone’s favorite was Arya.

  10. I liked Meta’s I have a dog to feed bit in Aquaman #18 best this week.

  11. It’s a great time to be reading comics. East of West was amazing.

  12. Some really good choices, I would have included the last page of Journey Into Mystery myself.
