Comic Frontline is starting a new segment where the crew picks their Top 5 comic panels from the week, and then you guys get to vote below which panel was your favorite. In next week’s post I will announce the winner from the poll.
Fan Panel Pick From Last Week – Red Hood And The Outlaws #21 – I Don’t Always “Get” Humanity!
5. Superman #45 – The Kents….
This was such a Lois thing to do, and Clark saying “But isn’t this illegal” was priceless. It led for a touching moment to end Tomasi’s Superman run and start a new chapter for the family.
See Frontline Crew I celebrated Superman too! Now you can forgive me for not having Action Comics #1000 in my Top 3 Anticipated list.
4. X-Men Gold #26 – Screw Gender Roles!
3. X-Men Gold #26 – Mom, Walk Me Down The Aisle?
Kitty deals with a lot of craziness in her life she’s a ninja, she was in space with the Guardians of the Galaxy, and now she’s the leader of the X-Men. It’s nice to have touching/grounded scenes like this for her every once in awhile.
2. Ms. Marvel #29 – I’m Gay.
I love Zoe! She has grown so much as a character in this series, from mean girl to one of Kamala’s best friends. It’s really great to see how open she has become as a character, now that she has destroyed the walls she built while hiding her sexuality.
1. Ms. Marvel #29 – Don’t Fall For A Snob!
Zoe is essentially falling in love with her old mean girl self, and I love it! The ending of the issue had an interesting twist with Zoe’s new love interest, which shows the true balance this book has with “Archie” high school drama and superhero antics.
5. Ms. Marvel #29 – Bruno Is Back!
Just as Kamala has her first kiss, her first somewhat love shows back up, right at that moment, of course. And Kamala’s inner dialogue in this panel says it all. And plus, Bruno is back! Yay.
4. Avengers #689 – You In?
This is a very simple thing, but seeing a third-rate Avenger like Lightning taking on an Elder of the Universe is exactly what being a superhero is all about, and heroes in general. The meek confound the wise. He challenges the former Grandmaster to a game of poker because he knows he can’t resist the challenge. It’s beautiful in its simplicity.
3. Ms. Marvel #29 – That Was A Phase….
I love this panel because of the twist here, saying her veganism was a phase. This is just a funny line that speaks to who Chloe is and how she owns it. She’s not my favorite character, but she has grown quite a bit.
2. – Batman #45 – See The Terrible And Get Peace.
Booster Gold can be an idiot sometimes. Giving Bruce Wayne the “gift” of having his parents, but then making him relive it and trying to convince him to now go fix it? “Well, not KILL your parents, per se…” Man… Booster… that’s kind of cold, dude. haha
1. Superman #45 – The Colors Will Fly!
This whole issue was a great way to leave Gleason’s run and leave Hamilton. Topping it off is Superman and son going out to save the day… Up, Up and AWAY!
5. Action Comics #100 – He Doesn’t Look Like Superman Without The Shorts!
4. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #26 – What Exactly Does That Mean?
3. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #26 – The Last Couple Days….
2. Action Comics #1000 – We Should Always Have Hope!
1. Superman #45 – I Want To Grow Up To Be Just Like You, Dad!
I said it before and I will continue to say it, I am a sucker for Father and Son moments. Man this scene hits home on so many levels, thank you!
