Top 10 Funniest Panels of the Week

10. New Avengers #13

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis    Artists: Mike Deodato Jr. & Howard Chaykin

Whatever you say chief.


9. Mystery Men #1

Writer: David Liss    Artist: Patrick Zircher

Ah, racism of the rich and powerful.  Also, it is now canon that the Daily Bugle has been condemning heroes long before JJJ’s time.

8. Iron Age: Alpha #1

Writer: Rob Williams    Artist: Rebekah Isaacs

At least he’s honest about it.

7. Journey Into Mystery #624

Writer: Kieron Gillen    Artist: Doug Braithwaite

Kid Loki is so adorable when he cares.

6. Fear Itself: Deadpool #1

Writer: Christopher Hastings     Artist: Bong Dazo

Awkward.  Also, how great of a name is Bong Dazo?

5. Incredible Hulks #630

Writer: Greg Pak    Artist: Paul Pelletier

She-Hulk: A lawyer for years and years, but it only pays off in the a hypothetical discussion about wishing wells.

4. Deadpool #38

Writer: Daniel Way     Artist: Bong Dazo

There’s not a single thing going right for Deadpool in this frame.

3. Batman: Arkham City #2

Writer: Paul Dini     Artist: Carlos D’anda

1.  Won’t somebody think of the dead singles and divorcees?  2.  It’s really hard to imagine what a drunk Joker would act like.

2. Annihilators #4

Writers: Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning    Artists: Tan Eng Huat & Timithy Green II

I love that little contraption.  The Rocket Raccoon and Groot half of the book has easily been the more enjoyable half.


Coming in at the top is a series we haven’t seen in the countdown ever before and probably won’t see it ever again.  It’s….

1. Empowered Special #2: 10 Questions For the Maidman

Writer: Adam Warren    Artist: Adam Warren & Emily Warren

You know, I never really thought of it like that before and it makes a lot of cape comics take on a perverse new feeling.

… and that concludes another week’s countdown!  So, did I miss any good ones?  Which was your favorite?  Sound off in the comments! By the way, Flashpoint: Frankenstein and the Crusader of the Unknown is off to a brilliant start, so be sure to check that out if haven’t already done so.

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!
