Panels of the Week, 6/28/2012

So, one of the scenes from today's books reminded me of one of my top Batman moments ever, so that's a win by default.

Hit the jump to see all my picks.

Batman Incorporated #2: Chris Burnham draws a pretty god damn good Talia al Ghul, that's for sure. Here is basically her Medusa gaze, and Burnham nailed it.Where a lot of artists draw similar face on their characters, there are just so many small details to this one shot, which proves Burnham is not one of those types of artists. Plus, Talia comes off as a total badass.

Batman - The Dark Knight #10: While it's not the same context, this scene reminded me greatly of my favorite DC animated episode of any series, Justice League Unlimited's "Epilogue." Ace's death, is perhaps my favorite Batman moment of all time.

Justice League #10: Justice League, HOOOOOOOOO!

All-Star Western #10: One of my biggest gripes with All-Star Western was the fact that, while it had Amadeus Arkham in it, he was often used as the straight man to Jonah Hex's antics. That darkness/madness that was established in Grant Morrison's Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth was never really outright hinted out. This... this changes everything, and I hope it is followed up upon

Also, this is just hilarious. Putting Arkham's reaction on a completely white background was perfect.

Teen Titans #10: Oh bunker... it's funny, because, well... you know.

Ame-Comi Batgirl #2: The artist on this title really gets points for the exaggerated, crazy, animated looking sense of motion put onto the pages.

Legends of the Dark Knight #4: The art in this issue was fantastic, and this was rather early on in the issue, so like a minute in, I thought: "Well, got the panel for this one already." I'd LOVE to see more issues of this series drawn by Templesmith.
