The Best of the Week in Panels – 08.29.2012

I love it when a panel comes together.


Green Lantern Annual #1

By Geoff Johns, Ethan Van Sciver, Hi-Fi, & Sal Cipriano

This is how I imagine an Oompa Loompa civil war might look.


Wolverine and The X-Men #15

By Jason Aaron, Jorge Molina, Norman Lee, Morry Hollowell, & Chris Eliopoulos

Aww, Broo is so adorable. And it looks like Tony Stark might have finally found himself a proper sidekick!


Aquaman #12

By Geoff Johns, Ivan Reis, Joe Prado or Oclair Albert or Andy Lanning, Rod Reis, & Nick J. Napolitano

Ivan Reis is a beast.


FF #21

By Jonathan Hickman, Nick Dragotta, Cris Peter, & Clayton Cowles

Black Bolt? Diiiiick.


American Vampire #30

By Scott Snyder, Rafael Albuquerque, Dave McCaig, & Jared K. Fletcher

If I ever end up firing a giant machine gun at a horde of invaders, I will do it with a cigar chomped between my teeth.


Prophet #28

By Brandon Graham, Giannis Milonogiannis, Joseph Bergin III, Charo Solis, & Ed Brisson

This series continues to have dazzling double page spreads.


Uncanny X-Force #30

By Rick Remender, Dave Williams, Dean White, & Cory Petit

This is like the most terrifying episode of Quantum Leap ever.


Detective Comics Annual #1

By Tony S. Daniel, Romano Molenaar, Sandu Florea, Dave Sharpe, & Andrew Dalhouse

Yes, what Alfred has for you, Bruce, is a magical floating table.


Avenging Spider-Man #11

By Zeb Wells, Steve Dillon, Frank Martin Jr., & Joe Caramagna

This was the biggest laugh out loud moment of the week.


Justice League #12

By Geoff Johns, Jim Lee, One of a Whole Army of Inkers, One of a Whole Army of Colorists, & Patrick Brosseau

You know this one had to be in here.




  2. Jacen Chris (@jcbhatestweeter) says:

    The page with Evan made me actually jump.

  3. Am I the only one who read Iron Man as Hank Scorpio from the Simpsons in that panel?

  4. Also that panel with Broo is my personal highlight of the week, love that little guy.

  5. that typo under the American Vampire panel made me think you wanted to die fighting Horse Invaders

  6. The Detective Comics annual inker is actually spelled “Sandu Florea,” and he’s the biggest comics rock star to ever emerge from Romania.

  7. I really need to start reading Wolverine and the X-Men. That is some greatness. The Prophet piece is stunning. As is much of the series.

  8. Wolverine and the X-Men made me so happy this week and reminded me of just how funny the series is.

  9. Man, these are all impossibly wonderful.

  10. There are some fantastic panels of Black Bolt in FF.

    But the one I loved is early on where he’s clearly taking a dump…..You know the panel.

  11. My favorite part of Aquaman #12 was the opening scene featuring Mera and her kick-@$$ abilities; that was amazing. The fight against Manta was also pretty awesome, and the death of that one character was very moving, as was seeing Arthur crying.

    Please check my non-review of Aquaman #12 here:

    Comments and feedback are always welcome!

  12. Great set of panels this week.

  13. my personal favorite: Minutemen #3’s final page.

  14. It’s probably just coincidence but is it cheap that AVX Versus is apeing Justice League 12’s Superman/Wonder Woman kiss with Storm and Black Panther’s?

  15. The Prophet panel is gorgeous, Makes me want to go an buy the issue. Beautiful.

  16. My favorite panel was that moment in American Vampire when Skinner walks out of the woods and into gunfire twirling the gun on his finger.
    Perfectly designed to remind the reader that before becoming a vampire he was a badass outlaw.

  17. And with that panel, my love of Broo grew exponentially.

  18. wow….UNCLE TONY

  19. Love the floating table.
