Sophie's Choice Friday!

It's no secret that I loves doing me some blogging about silliness I find in comics. And yes, some entries are funnier than others, but you're only as good as what you find. Sometimes, pickings are slim.

But sometimes.... just when you thought you've seen it all, you run into a vein of "Greatest Panels in the Medium of Graphic Storytelling" and you just don't know what to do with that embarassment of riches.

The expression on Krypto's face. His dialogue. Superboy in the corner eating out of a dog dish. Can you imagine the excitement I felt when I found this?

But then:

How awesome is that?

And these are hilarious if you substitute the word "bones" for "boning." It's not that big of an adjustment, and the laugh dividends are huge. Try it!:

I had a grandmother who was an elementary school music teacher. She was one of the sweetest ladies who ever walked the earth, and she would never understand why or how I take perfectly innocent things and make them raunchy.

So, what's the Greatest Panel in the History of Graphic Storytelling?

My vote this week is Brainiac 5 smacking Saturn Girl:

You know we'll be seeing that one again!

WOW Adam, are you saying you prefer Braniac smashing five knuckles across Saturn Girl's face over Reed Richard's bitch-slapping his wife?

You are making my day a little brighter every day!

Can't let this one go unchanged, man.

(And I love that Krypto / Supes swap issue. Love, love it!)

Adam Barnett said...

You know, I plan on finding panels of every annoying person I find getting bitch-slapped, and I'm just going to make it a big gallery...

SallyP said...

Adam, thank you. You just MADE my morning. But isn't there a scan of Saturn Girl slapping Braniac anywhere in existence? Because there SHOULD be.
