THIS WEEK IN PANELS showcases our favorite comic book panels each week. No criteria, no rhyme, no reason. Excelsior! (Click pictures to embiggen)
No recurring theme in panels this week, folks; just an à la carte of great art, storytelling, and notable moments. More, of course, after the jump.
|Batman #6 by Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo; DC 2012|
The "Court of the Owls" storyline continues from last month's dizzying maze issue as Batman takes a serious beating by Talon at the bequest of the Court. This marks a literal turning point to the story arc, though, as the events of this issue seem to mirror themselves as the *ahem* Dark Knight rises.
|Daredevil #9 by Mark Waid & Paolo Rivera; Marvel 2012|
Daredevil #9 showcases Rivera's clever illustration of the Man Without Fear's radar sense as Daredevil follows Mole Man's Moloids below the earth in search of his father's corpse. But, things aren't always as they appear.
|B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: the Long Death #1 by Mike Mignola, John Arcudi & James Harren; Dark Horse 2012|
Mignola and team deliver on the Hellboy camp's Year of Monsters campaign with part 1 of a gloriously gory story following Johann Kraus on his journey to confront a monster by which he may or may not be tormented.
|Uncanny X-Men #7 by Kieron Gillen & Greg Land; Marvel 2012|
Uncanny X-Men continues the Tabula Rasa storyline with a poignant reflection on mankind's warlike nature.
|Wonder Woman #6 by Brian Azzarello & Tony Akins; DC 2012|
Wonder Woman has a brief laugh among its own clash of the titans.
|Peter Panzefaust #1 by Kurtis Wiebe & Tyler Jenkins; Image 2012|
And Image's Peter Panzefaust shows we can fly if only we believe... even in war-torn France circa World War II.
