Amazing Spider-Man #791
by Dan Slott and Stuart Immonen
by Tom King and Joelle Jones
So true. Selina understands Batman so well, and still she loves him. I guess that's real love for ya.
Another quote from her:
This is a world of Supermen. And Misters Terrific.
Batman. For his...JUSTICE...he'll betray you. He'll betray ME.
If you think of yourself as the BEST. And you're looking for the BEST...whatever he is, Talia, I swear, he's NOT that.
What he is...all he is...
He's just the stupid man I stupidly love.
Captain America #696
by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee
Just a simple action panel told in a sound effect. Makes it a joy to read.
Doomsday Clock #1
by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank
The datestamp for the comic is explicitly November 22/23, 1922. But that one panel just made it a little too real.
Other moments in this comic included the Mime's invisible weapons -- probably my favorite moment there.
by Kelly Thompson and Leonardo Romero
I's the original Hawkeye acknowledging that Kate Bishop is also Hawkeye. It's a sign of respect and admiration when he admits it to her, and all you need to see is her smile to know how she feels about it.
The Punisher #218
by Matthew Rosenberg and Guiu Vilanova
That last panel is hilarious -- it's when the goons realize they're in a Punisher comic, and they get their comeuppance, but we, as the reader, know what's going to happen to them right from panel one. Great "gag," if the Punisher would have them!
There's another great scene, told in a couple of pages. It's Nick Fury's explanation of the Air Force base, while Frank is infiltrating it to obtain the War Machine armor. It's a great use of dialogue to enrich an otherwise silent scene, and also an efficient use of space, to avoid pages of talking heads.
Lastly, here's Vilanova's take on the War Machine armor.
It's much less "clean" than your normal splash pages or cover art will depict. It even looks organic, more malleable. A very appropriate way to usher in the Punisher in the War Machine armor.
Silver Sable and the Wild Pack #36
by Christa Faust, Paulo Siquiera and Jose Luis
How wild is that? Unbelievable that the only thing that Silver gets from the shark bite, is a minor wound!
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #26
by Ryan North, Erica Henderson and more! Wouldja believe -- they even roped in Garfield creator Jim Davis!
I shared a couple of panels from this comic already -- but here's another couple that I wanted to incorporate, from Kraven's story, "The True Story of Spider-Man"
Love those signs -- "Make Mine Kraven!" "We crave Kraven!"
