10. T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #7

Writers: Nick Spencer    Artists: CAFU, Bit, Mike Grell & Nick Dragotta

These panels were meant to be serious and underscore the gravity of the situation within the context of the story, but I couldn’t help but chuckle at how flippantly she discusses the notion of matricide.

Writer: Christos Gage    Artists: Sean Chen

Mettle, Agent of D.A.R.E.

8. Amazing Spider-man #661

Writer: Christos Gage    Artist: Reilly Brown

The problem with superhero quotes is that it is difficult to verify their origin.  – Giant-Man

Shang-Chi? No, no wait…. Sentry! No, that’s not it….   I got it! Batman!


5. Doctor Who: A Fairytale Life #2

It really is a common mistake.  They lure you in with the promise of tasty space chicken wings and then BAM! You’re inside their stomach.

4. Power Girl #24

Writer: Judd Winick     Artist: Henry Pasetya

Nothing’s as effective as the drunk playboy.  Maybe the glasses, but the drunk playboy is truly the more bulletproof package.

3. DeadpoolMAX #8

This book can be delightfully twisted when it wants to be.

2. Darkwing Duck #12

Writer: Ian Brill    Artist: James Silvani

The customary housewarming gift of the Lovecraftian deity: the bucket of dead fish.  As is tradition.

We’ve got a newcomer this week at number one.  Coming in at the top spot is….

1. Herc #3

Writers: Greg Pak & Fred Van Lente    Artist: Neil Edwards

Man-Bull is just adorable with his blatant insecurities.

… and that concludes another week’s countdown!  On a side note, while it didn’t have any countdown worthy moments, Snyder, Higgins and McCarthy’s Gates of Gotham #1 was outstanding.  Back to the funny business, did I miss any good ones?  Which was your favorite?  Sound off in the comments!

Also, if I may indulge in a bit of self-promotion, you can find my previous countdowns from past weeks here at Gamma Squad and  here at my old blog.  Until next week!
