Panel Discussion - Geekanerd's Week in Comic Book Scans

Clearest Example Of Batman's Insanity - Justice League of America Wedding Special, #1
Okay, Batman, seriously, TURN IT OFF. You don't need to be deducing whether or not Green Arrow wants strippers at his bachelor party. And PS - he doesn't?! WTF? Granted, most of the JLA women wear what amount to stripper outfits on a day-to-day basis, so maybe it just seemed redundant.

Most Self-Satisfied Kid - Parade (With Fireworks) #1
This character design is priceless. Those floppy arms and legs, the slightly menacing shadow on the eyes, the huge chair. Life is good. But in a comic, you know such a smug tyke is clearly destined for some reverses. But at least when things turn ugly, he'll always have the memory of that sweet curtain.

Beatdown of the Week - Black Adam Vs Yeti, Black Adam #2Memo to me: never, never, never come between Black Adam and a backpack full of his dead wife's remains. I like my intestines right where they are.

Best Father-Son Moment - Daredevil #100
Daredevil #100 was awash with fantastic art, but it was this dream sequence where Battlin' Jack Murdock gives Matt some suitably wizened advice that really got me. See Double D? All you needed to work out your relationship/daddy issues was a forcible hallucinogenic drug injection.

Best Save - Superman, Black Adam #2
I give Superman a lot of crap, but every now and then he actually uses his ridiculously powerful powers to do something impressive. Here, he saves an Innocent family from two stray bullets by zapping them in mid-air, leaving this charming pseudo-ethnic family free to enjoy their dinner and prime-time TV in peace. And...*sniff*...they'll never even know know what Superman did for them....that man is a saint.

Best Explanation - Countdown #33
Bruce Wayne + Cave, Utility Belt & Cash Monies = BAT. Hush is like, "Of course!"

I have to say Hush is drawn pretty terribly in that panel. It's less like his face is wrapped in bandages and more like he just has a really white face with lines going across it.

That Batman panel from the JLA Wedding Special was pretty funny in a fanservice way. I'll admit, I laughed!
