Comic Book Moments of the Week for 07/01/09

Secret Six and Batman and Robin both racked up quite a few moments for this week's Moments of the Week. Two great issues that really define the term Must Read. On the Marvel side of things, War of Kings and Marvel Divas both had some moments on hand. Check out these and the rest, after the jump.

Agents of Atlas #7

This recap page rivals the Dr Doom Shaft homage from the Dr Doom and Master of Evil miniseries.

Batman and Robin #2

Just a great splashpage. Love the perspective used.

This is the bulk of the Alfred/Dick talk from this issue. Some great stuff here. Love the 'show must go on' ending.

Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth #1
I believe this is the first time someone has finally made fun of the AIM beekeeper uniforms.

Fantastic Four #568

Unless it's revealed as some kind of mind game or misdirection, the Marquis of Death is revealed as Clyde Wyncham from Millar's 1985. If you didn't read 1985, I assume this comes out of left field.

Justice League: Cry for Justice #1

Hey Ray, remember you wife. You know, the crazy one that went running around inside someone's brain and killed them. You kind of lost yourself over how insane she was and took a trip through the Multiverse over it. Ya, that one. Thought you might have learned something from that. Guess justice has no limits. JUSTICE!

Marvel Divas #1

First panel shows off the kind of cliched dialogue I disliked. Bottom panel I really enjoyed. Weird how they were pretty much back to back like this.

The bartender's reaction is priceless.

This is the cancer reveal. Still not sold on it. If you want to do 'divas' trash talking other super heroes or doing the whole sex talk and female empowerment stuff, do that. If you want to have a serious topic like someone getting cancer, do the character work for that. I'll save final judgement for the next issue though. If they try to continue with the diva talk or do a copout on the cancer, I'll probably end up dropping the miniseries.

Secret Six #11

Really liked this sequence. It has a lot of depth to the story and can relate to just about any military/authority figure abusing their powers. Yes, not everyone is a nazi or racist or evil man, but the good ones believing the evil or standing by while the atrocities go on doesn't absolve them of their crimes either.

Ragdoll is the best character ever.

Case in point.

This came out of nowhere. Artemis, while drugged, didn't seem like she was on the brink of death and Wonder Woman hadn't even shown up or cameoed up until now. She just appears at the most convenient time, just as Artemis is dying. Will have to see where they go with this.

Uncanny X-Men #513

Well, they didn't waste time telling us who the fake Xavier is. Mystique's been sort of jumping all over the place since Get Mystique! ended. She was all hot and bothered with Iceman in Manifest Destiny and now she's working with Norman Osborn. Character seems to have regressed a bit over the past year or so.

Adam X is XTREME! He wears a backwards baseball cap and curses and has a sword and shoulder spikes, too! XTREMEEEEEE!!! I love it when they poke fun at 90's stuff like this.

War of Kings #5

You have great rage within you. Welcome to the Red Lantern Corps, Gladiator.

It's about time we got to this fight. Can't wait.

And "the day when your adversaries join forces" is also a reference to the events of Old Man Logan.

I saw that ADAM X THE X-TREME panel and totally burst out laughing.

I don't remember the last time that I have looked forward to a fight as much as Black Bolt vs. Vulcan. It should be epic.

Flip The Page said...

Agents of Atlas has always had the best recap pages from the get go and without fail.

Also my moment for the week would be every instance where JUSTICE! is said in JUSTICE! League: cry for justice #1

Best line ever: "And I hate the cape."
