Hello, and welcome to Saturday Morning Panels! It’s a very simple concept: since none of us are up to watching Saturday morning cartoons anymore, we are instead going to share with you our favorite panels from the week before. It’s a bit like Comics Should Be Cheap, except with more pictures and less reading.
And, of course, spoilers are probably abundant.
As a note, this week features some content that is not safe for work. Please keep that in mind when reading, and don’t get in trouble with your boss if you read this column Monday mornings.
We encourage you to play along at home and let us know what your favorite moments of the week were in the comment section! In the meantime, our picks:
“Batman” #39: Nobody messes with the butler. Nobody. – Keith Dooley
“Batman” #39: I squealed with pain and heartbreak when I got to this page. Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo sure know how to punch readers in the gut. – Keith Dooley
“Batman” #39: You know, I just don’t think there are enough references to Burton’s Batman movie these days. I mean this honestly. – Matthew Garcia
“Batman” #39: The Bat keeps watch over his flock. – Keith Dooley
“Gotham by Midnight” #4: The power of the Spectre compels you! – Keith Dooley
“Adventure Time” #37: When I try out a new recipe. – Matthew Garcia
“Chew” #46: I have no idea why, but I love these little fuckers. I love the Rob draws them exactly like their dad. I love that they are just proportionate, mini versions of him. They never don’t make me laugh. – David Harper
“Chew” #46: Poyo. Even dead, he’s a bad mother. – David Harper
“Low” #6: Greg Tocchini’s art is a wonder to behold. – Keith Dooley
“Roche Limit” #5: It’s a dead man’s party. – Keith Dooley
“Sex” #20: Brad Simpson is one of the best colorists around. – Keith Dooley
“The Wicked and the Divine” #8: Let’s take a moment to applaud Matt Wilson. His colors on this comic are hooootttttttt. – David Harper
How do you stop a moving object? With a douche. – Matthew Garcia
“The Wicked and the Divine” #8: While I really feel like he should have said either a) where we’re going, we don’t need roads or b) come with me if you want to live, this panel is Baaler as all hell. – David Harper
“The Wicked and the Divine” #8: This little sequence is equal parts horrifying sadness and absolute creepiness. Don’t judge a book by its cover. YOLO. – David Harper
I want that T-shirt. – Matthew Garcia
