The Best of the Week in Panels – 10.06.2010

Panels? Cigaretten?


Hawkeye and Mockingbird #5

By Jim McCann, David Lopez, Alvaro Lopez, Nathan Fairbairn, and Cory Petit

Clint don't take no guff, it would seem.  Didn't see that one coming.  Neither did Crossfire. RIMSHOT!

— Josh Flanagan

Ultimate Thor #1

By Jonthan Hickman, Carlos Pacheco, Dexter Vines, Edgardo Delgado & Clayton Cowles

I think that every man hopes that one day he will have the occasion to deliver a badass speech just like this one.

— Conor Kilpatrick


Scalped #41

By Jason Aaron, RM Guerra, Giulia Brusco, and Steve Wands

Star crossed lovers pass each other on a lonely snowy road.  This is how you make wonderful comics without a single word. I love the motion of the lines in the final panel, and it gets better every single issue.

— Josh Flanagan


Uncanny X-Force #1

By Rick Remender, Jerome Opena, Dean White, & Cory Petit

In an issue full of jaw-dropping art, this panel was my favorite.

— Conor Kilpatrick


Sweet Tooth #14

By Jeff Lemire, Jose Villarrubia, and Pat Brousseau

And it was at this point that the lovable deer boy got hardcore. With a brick.

— Josh Flanagan


CBLDF Liberty Annual 2010

By Evan Dorkin & Sarah Dyer

After beating and robbing everyone at a comic boon convention, Milk & Cheese make their donation to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

  1. A Milk & Cheese sighting. Hold on. I am fighting back a tear.

  2. I tried to donate a hand to the CBLD once too

  3. I’m going to start calling mennial tasks "hobo work" now

  4. That Sweet Tooth page is perfect.  


    And I’m not aware, but, is the character called Juggler, or is that just a misspelling?  Is it supposed to be jugular? 

  5. Oh wait.  That’s Deadpool, huh?  I retract my last statement.  I’m pretty sick with a sinus infection, and am not thinking clearly. LOL.  Apologies.

  6. Aw man. There was a panel from the milk and chess story that where they diss Archie that made me laugh my ass off

  7. That Deadpool panel just found its way as my phone background.

  8. @Josh: wow, out of context that is eerily homoerotic, which is why I actually laughed.

  9. How did I miss that Juggler joke when I read it the first time?

  10. Izzit just me, or did Sweet Tooth #14 do something similar to CHEW #14, with the red action-y stuff? Still, it’s a really good way of showing action without going all Mark Millar.

  11. A Milk & Cheese sighting? *DORKGASM!*

  12. These are great choices; I definitely love that Milk and Cheese sighting.

    But my favorite comes pretty much at the end of Ultimate Thor. It’s a bit of a cheat since it’s a page but:

    How can you not love the fact that Baron Zemo took the time to size and fit Ice Giants in SS uniforms? That had me laughing so hard after thinking about it. 

  13. The "hobo" line is the greatest thing ever committed to paper.

  14. @josh: I can definitely see now how the guys at ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force’ used these two as inspiration for the Mooninites. That’s definitely something Err (the pink one) would say.

  15. Damn i really need to pick up scalped.  

  16. Jerome Opena was always good, but when did he get THIS good?
