Hello and welcome back to Saturday Morning Panels!

With the shutdown of Diamond Comics Distributors due to COVID-19, there won’t be new comics for who knows how long. Rather than put our column on hold, we took a page out of our Special Edition playbook and bring you our favorite panels around a particular theme. This week: comics from other properties. See some of our favorite TV shows, movies, video games, and more that made the jump to comics.

So kick-back, watch out for spoilers, and talk about your favorites in the comments section below! And if you have an idea for a theme for an upcoming installment, leave it in the comments. Stay safe, wash your hands, and stop touching your face. (Reading a comic will help with that last one!)

“Adventures of The Mask” #2: Getting a bit meta here, as this series was a comic of an animated series that was an adaptation of a comic which featured Dober-man, who is basically a thicc boi Poochie. – Dexter Buschetelli

“Aliens: Dead Orbit” #1: Stokoe’s version of a lunch meat walker is gore-geous. – Elias Rosner

“Aliens: Salvation” #1: I don’t know who needed this today but here is Mike Mignola drawing a xenomorph. – Dexter Buschetelli

“Angel” #5: I can’t believe I still read this comic every week. I would not be able to watch this show if it was this scary – Jake Hill

“Assassin’s Creed: Uprising” #4: Probably one of the best single images in the entire franchise. – Greg Ellner

“Avatar: The Last Airbender―The Search”: Iroh always had his priorities in order. – Mark Tweedale

“Bee & Puppycat” Vol. 1: Me the second Passover is over. – Elias Rosner

“Bee & Puppycat” Vol. 1: Haha, mood. – Elias Rosner

“Clerks: The Comic Book” #1: I’m still kinda miffed we never got this action figure. Although there is a Funko figurine. – Dexter Buschetelli

“Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins II” #1: Vex’ahlia is every not-morning person, or many an individual before their coffee. – Greg Ellner

“Dark Souls: The Breath of Andolus” #3: Would you believe it’s not what it looks like? – Greg Ellner

“Dishonored: The Wyrmwood Deceit” #4: Want to find out how she got this way from her prior appearance in The Knife of Dunwall? Check her out all over the games and expanded universe, including the second game, The Death of the Outsider, the novel The Veiled Terror, and the one before that, The Return of Daud… in that order (the latter being after this). Ms. Lurk has an unusual journey even for Dishonored protagonists, but it’s well worth the look. – Greg Ellner

“Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor” #0: Smart way to acknowledge Peri’s accent here. – Christopher Chiu-Tabet

“Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles” #1: It was then that she realized how bad her son’s video game addiction had become. – Elias Rosner

“Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles” #1: I never thought that a comic about a Hannah Barbara cartoon would make a better case for live theater than most broadway ads. – Elias Rosner

“G.I. Joe: Cobra” #12: The sound effect heard across the world – Christopher Chiu-Tabet

“Henry and Glenn Forever and Ever” #1: There is a comic where Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig are in a loving relationship but the best part is Daryl Hall and John Oates are their neighbors who are also Satanists. – Dexter Buschetelli

“James Bond” #2: I never thought a Bond comic would show such a relatably sad card game in such a relatably sad diner. – Jake Hill

“Jim Cornette Presents: Behind the Curtain” #1: This is the best companion piece to The Comic Book Story of Professional Wrestling there could be. – Dexter Buschetelli

“KFC: The Colonel Corps” #2: Does this mean that everyone is getting above minimum wage and health insurance? Because otherwise, you’re taking the easy way Colonel. – Elias Rosner

Continued below

“Life is Strange” #6: Max/Chloe/Rachel is low key my favorite love triangle, and I can’t believe we got a really excellent comic parsing it. #Blessed #ForCereal – Jake Hill

“Life is Strange” #12: Huh, who knew the bubbling burning polaroid effect from the game was just Kirby dots – Christopher Chiu-Tabet

“Mega Man (2011)” #26: Technically correct, Orbot. – Greg Ellner

“Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers” #4: Quit it Dragonzord, you’re cramping Megazord’s style – Christopher Chiu-Tabet

“Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” #47: I fell off of Power Rangers when I was 7, but then the comics looked this good, and here I am. – Jake Hill

“Mortal Kombat X” #11: No, not the bees! They’re in my eyes! – Greg Ellner
“Mortal Kombat X” #11: Bees. My God – Elias Rosner

“Rugrats” #2: Angelica is totally Cersei – Christopher Chiu-Tabet

“Star Trek” #30: ‘Parallel Lives’ was full of unexpected joys, but this cameo took the cake – Christopher Chiu-Tabet

“Star Trek: The Q Conflict” #2: My actual pick for my Federation bridge crew: Captain: Picard, First Officer: Spock. Science Officer: Stamets. Engineer: O’Brien. Communications: Tilly. Helm: Nog. Navigation: Barclay. Doctor: Voyager’s EMH and Security: Tasha Yar. – Jake Hill

“Star Wars” (1977) #1: I don’t remember Luke’s chin being so. . .chonky. – Elias Rosner

“Star Wars” (1977) #67: The faces were horrifying, but the spaceships were pretty cool – Jake Hill

“Star Wars: Darth Maul – Death Sentence” #4: Let’s be honest: We were all thinking it. – Greg Ellner

“Star Wars: Darth Vader (2015)” #3: Do you remember when the comics saved Star Wars by having Darth Vader punch a big ‘ol bird? – Jake Hill

“Star Wars: Darth Vader (2015)” #3: Ah yes, the Reverse Indiana Jones maneuver. – Greg Ellner

“Star Wars Kylo Ren” #1: So this means I can get a Magic card of the Zillo Beast, right? – Jake Hill

“Street Fighter” #2: Ah, the nineties. When you could have a hyper-violent Street Fighter series where Sagat scalps Ken. It was a simpler time. – Dexter Buschetelli

“Star Wars: The Manga – The Empire Strikes Back” Vol. 1: Only in “The Promised Neverland” rendition of Star Wars would Han saying he has to leave make Leia blush this hard. Or maybe it’s just the hypothermia setting in. – Elias Rosner

“The Transformers: Infiltration” #5: Megatron ignoring a terrified fleshy is why this is my favorite version of him – Christopher Chiu-Tabet

“Transformers: Lost Light” #25: It’s amazing how these two simple panels can be so delightful and emotionally affecting simply because of the context of everything established before – Christopher Chiu-Tabet

“The Witcher: Curse of Crows” #1: Monster hunting is a complicated (and disgusting) profession. – Greg Ellner

“Wolfenstein: The Deep” #2: Moving on… – Greg Ellner

“Xena: Warrior Princess” (2018) #9: Oh my Zeus, it’s an Ancient Greek cosplay convention! – Christopher Chiu-Tabet
