I cheated this week and picked a couple…but I have really good reasons, I swear.
First of all, this…from Batman & Robin #14:
And am I wrong? No, I’m not. It’s crazy f’ed up panels like this that make The Joker one of the greatest villains of all time. Also, look at Damian all trussed up and painted like a clown…hilarious and also horrifying. Awesome stuff.
And this, also from Batman & Robin #14:
It’s panels like this that make Batman the single greatest superhero of all time. Look at the that silhouette! A-MAZING. And I don’t deny that Bats is my favorite and thus I’m totally biased…but aren’t all we comics geeks unreasonably crazy for certain characters?
But this, from Batgirl #14, which is a double (triple?) cheat, because it’s a page, not a panel, also deserves mention. I’m a fairly vocal non-fan of Stephanie Brown as Batgirl, and I don’t love the book, but I continue buying it because I think it’s an important book to have out there for girls and women – and in the hopes that I will manage to fall in love…eventually. I also think Bryan Q. Miller IS actually doing a pretty great job finding Steph’s voice. Case in point, this page, which is executed perfectly. I’m not always crazy for Garbett’s art but I think he nails Steph in panel 3.
