An old fashioned kind, but nothing odd about it. I assume that you think that there are two barrels. There isn't. That "second barrel" is a casing ejector. Open the cylinder and it can be used to eject casings that aren't falling out on their own. Very necessary, since you sure as fuck don't want to put your fingers in there.
If I can switch to cartoons for a bit, I had that reaction to Jimmy's reveal in Kids Next Door.
Morrison Batman and Robin spoiler. Loved this moment and characterization.
and this was hype as fuck
Irving's art suited this arc so well
Colt Peacemaker, or maybe one of half a dozen modern copies. It's an old school old west revolver. Shoots a big ass .45 caliber bullet, though.
Something about this made me a little nervous. Then Venom takes a bite out of Clints shoulder and then I went OH FUCK.
Maybe because back in the 80's comic artist understood basic human anatomy and composition. Before the Dark Times. Before the Dork Ages.
You know, there was still some great stuff being put out in the 90s, especially by DC. Also relevant to the OP
Something like that, yeah. This is the moment in Endgame where Bruce finally remembers who he is, if I'm not mistaken. After all the time Gordon has spent as Batman, the realization that the genuine article was coming back soom was welcome, to say the least.
I'm of two minds about this issue. On the one hand, it was really well done, and this part particular makes you actually respect Penguin.
On the other hand, the Penguin isn't really insane and doesn't need to be. Not all of Batman's rogues are nuts. The Penguin is just a gangster who fancies himself a cultured gentleman. It's not like he thinks he IS a penguin, or controls penguins or something. So having him be pathologically obsessed like this kind of warps the character too much for me.
This Dialogue is So Embarrassing: The Run
Why was Godzilla in Hell so fucking good? All of the issues were GOAT; even the one with narration had amazing environs.
This enitire issue really got my attention. Thor 161. The one prior to it and the two after it are some of my favorites.
"Oh fuck" but in a sad, sobbing way. This and the scene with Archie forced to kill his dad.
I still don't know how we survived.
A storyline ("Quisling") had an unusually intelligent/focused Crossed nicknamed "Smokey".
I know a lot of people are tired of Doomwank but fuck can it be entertaining
this is a guy who prances around in a big metal mask that shoots lasers from his hands and fights gods who has the balls to call himself "DOOM." That's some metal garbage.
Doom stands out as being relatively unaltered over the years. While Superman grafted a machinegun to his arm and Thor switched gender, Doom was a hammy, competent supervillain then and he's a hammy, competent supervillain now.
I'm not sure I'd call it Doomwank, it's just Doom being Doom.
He doesn't get to be cool often
>breaks out of the phantom zone and speed force with his fists
Superboy prime really is a "OH FUCK" character.
Brian Bolland, my man. He's very good at what he does, although a dreadfully, dreadfully slow worker.
Pic related, for both the artist and the thread topic.
I mean shit, looks so much worse then it is.
Its genuinely hard to tell whether Doom is so totally lacking in self awareness that he doesn't realize how absurd his ego is, or is just perfectly aware of his nature and abilities to the point that he has the utmost confidence in himself as a person.
Either way, he is unashamedly Doom.
Probably ego, he loses way too often due to overconfidence or richards to not call it a fatal flaw. It's still mostly justified since he's basically immortal, Doom losing is just a temporary setback.
Sorry Anon. I'm not /k/. I'm not into guns that much. I just own a basic .38 for recreation and defense and like to know enough about guns to justify my defense of the 2nd Amendment. I'm just a fucker who takes advantage of the internet being an archive of all human knowledge.
Hasn't it been said that most of the time that is just Doombots whose entire job is to keep Richards busy so he won't have the time or attention to interfere with whatever Doom is actually working on?
He is completely aware of himself. He can recognize when someone is more powerful than he is, he just won't speak it out loud. Like how he admired Dr Strange's powers in the occult and knew he was a better mage than him, or when he stood against the Celestials and knew he was going to die, but still didn't obeyed them.
a bit of both. I think there's some legit doublethink going on in him.
Like when he talks about how any Doom anywhere can be a doombot, even he might be a Doombot and not realise. Which means Doom can never fail except by not giving something his full attention. and THAT is Doom.
It's even within the realm of possibility that a Doombbot killed the original Dr Doom for not being Dr Doom enough according to the standards Dr Doom programmed it with.
> It's even within the realm of possibility that a Doombbot killed the original Dr Doom for not being Dr Doom enough according to the standards Dr Doom programmed it with.
This is my favorite theory.
Doom has long since stopped being a person, he is an idea. And the Doombots have at this point made it such that getting rid of Doom permanently is basically impossible.
As the culmination of magic and science, there are Doombots so advanced that you cannot even tell one from the real Doom after an autopsy. At that point, there really isn't any difference between them and the real thing that matters anymore.
Seems fairly unreasonable that a Doombot would be capable of defeating the real thing, even if they were equally matched. So it had to have been some kind of sneak attack, at which point the Doombot is not superior at all.
>So, let me get this straight.
>Godzilla feeds himself to a numberless horde of flying demons.
>Kills himself stone dead, his skellington is out.
>He then exerts his willpower through his dead flesh in the demon's myriad bellies.
>Takes over the whole fucking swarm.
>Covers up his skellie with demon meat, and fucking resurrects himself out of sheer badass.
>All because he couldn't beat the endless demon swarm any other way.
>Godzilla is based.
Academy fans get FUCKED
Mettle a SHIT
>Reading Final Crisis for the first time in a dark room with the only light in my room being the light from my computer monitor with no noise whatsoever outside of my computer's fan
It's an experience I'll never forget
>So why you guys liked Mettle so much anyway?
Mettle was a bro.
Mettle had a hot girlfriend who was utterly toxic and would kill anyone else. It was completely cliche' that they would get together. It should have been trite and stupid, but Mettle was such a bro he made it work.
And Hopeless shit on them for giggles.
Fuck that guy. I hope he dies of testicular cancer of the brain.
He very well COULD BE
Prime was last seen being pushed into the source wall by the teen titans (super shitty final issue before old52 was rebooted, they just didn't care)
During a big GL story in N52
Practically the entire source wall gets brought back to life by Black Hand
So quite possibly Prime fucking around somewhere ready to be written back into the story.
Greatest storytime. Bought the book afterwards, just to own
A recent one.
Probably the highlight of the series.
When he bailed out of the wagon at the last moment before take-off...
I was like NOOOoooo! g/f leaned over and asked why. 10 secs later she had her answer.
Fucking love the fact that when they recently added Shocker to Avengers Alliance, this was one of his standard moves. Makes my fucking day.
Okay, that's pretty boss. I always liked Bass; he has the best visual design of any character from the original MM franchise, and Sonic getting taken down a peg is always satisfying.
this was my Oh Fuck Thor moment
>Brian Bolland only does covers now
My dream was to see him draw a Dark Judges story with Dave Gibbons as colorist, all within' modern day.
Black & White still the best though.
>gee bill, how come your writer lets you wield two hammers?
This whole mini-series in general
>a whole state gets blown up
>massive doomsday battle
>the final shazam
Kid Miracleman goes berserk on London. It was legitimately frightening.
I know its done to death now, but the Watchmen "I did it thirty five minutes ago" is the one for me.
Read it back when I started reading comics (thanks to you fucks here), it was always on the /co/ recommended lists. So I just picked it up off amazon (this was a bit before the film came out), damn it was good.
Kaijumax is like a series of "oh fuck" moments, each worse than the last.
The monster he's describing here
is the one the orange monster asked to feed his kids while he's prisioner.
It was a good "Oh fuck" but the monologue on this page and the two page spread following it are probably some of my favorite moments in Batman Inc.
In terms of power levels, Bass is the toughest of the Mega Man era Wily bots by a solid margin. Nothing short of fully geared up Mega Man or a solid Reploid could take him down if he has Treble backing him up.
>actually liking overly-explained walls of text every panel
Given the retarded power levels they have here, it really feels like a cop-out that Sinestro lost. Superboy Prime alone could take out half the GL corps, and Anti-monitor is a multiverse-level threat.
He also beaten 3 entire teams of legionaires plus Superman, plus black lanterns, he made Mxyzptlk his bitch, destroyed several universes, moved planets with his own hands, broke into the DC editorial building and made a mess there, and he is also trolling their message board from his basement.
Dude has 4th wall breaking powers.
This scene largely because I thought Karnak was a scrub
>it really feels like a cop-out that Sinestro lost. Superboy Prime alone could take out half the GL corps, and Anti-monitor is a multiverse-level threat.
Prime Time only stuck around to take a crack at the Anti-Monitor, so neither of them were really able to do anything else
his entire character was just a big "oh fuck" moment
Man I love Hickman's F4 run so much. I don't care if people dislike his current stuff, that whole run was one of my favorite things in all of comics.
I really need to buy the omnibuses of his run sometime soon.
>Prime Time only stuck around to take a crack at the Anti-Monitor, so neither of them were really able to do anything else
Plus he "beat up like every stupid hero on earth".
Not enough Frank in this thread. What's the matter /co/, not though enough?
To me, that was the dumbest part. Other than the reveal that Johnny took over the Annihilation Wave by grabbing the Cosmic Control Rod.
If it were that simple, Rich would've removed the Wave as a threat the first time he pulled Annihilus inside out.
What I loved about this tussle is he wasn't even trying, he was just playing with them until the sun rose
which still makes no sense Johns, he flew to Earth how did he avoid its rays? Why would he avoid its rays? Why was he on the side of the planet where it hadn't already been sunrise? Still a cool conclusion shot but sort of baffling.
>mfw all that autism
Disproportionate? I mean having the restaurant close and losing his job would've been fine but the rest is too much money and effort. It's going way overboard. Especially deporting the guy's girlfriend and framing the buddy just because of their association
I mean is their proof that the chef even laughed at Oswald? What an über-sensitive bitch makes you wonder if some sperglord that you crossed paths with is plotting revenge over some perceived slight.
I think it's less "Oswald does this to everyone who laughs at him" and more "the Chef laughed at Oswald during one of his few genuinely happy moments and Oswald felt he ruined it"
Penguin's a deeply unhappy and fucked up person, I could see him ruining the life of some guy who might have laughed at him for tarnishing the moment
it can be entertaining when it's self aware.
When the writers realize how ridiculous and over the top all of that is, and run with it happily, it's distilled COMIC BOOKS.
When writers think that Doom is the best ever and want show everyone how their husbando is perfect has no flaws and no limits and can do no wrong, well, that's where doomwank becomes unsufferable
Admittedly I'm not the shows biggest fan but this clip is probably my favourite moment of the entire series.
Just the couple of seconds it took me to realise that those where screams.
I know you guys don't like this run but this really hitted me hard.
You notice something about this page though? The civvies usually hate the superheros, but when its frank they know he won't hurt them and will try and keep his shit within the limits of wrecking the people responsible.
Even most cops don't hate frank.
Back in Black was the hypest.
Fuck OMD from letting us have Pete and MJ on the run across America, teaming up with underground heroes and villains trying to survive, as the Sinister Six is recruited to hunt him down.
Prime has a lot of Oh Fuck moments.
I have looked over this damn picture time and time again, how the fuck did I not notice the RE characters that are front and fucking center?...
Damn it, I looked over that area several times and never noticed. Thanks, that was going to drive me nuts.
Also, is it just me, but does that kid that is down and to the right of the creeper, to the right of the dragon ball and trashcan, look like one of the Robin variants?
Is the God Killer arc of Jason Aaron's run worth buying? I don't want to buy it since it leads into Twhore, but one of my local second hand book stores has the 2 deluxe edition hardcovers for sale, I'm tempted to get it cause Jason Aaron writes superhero violence really well and Esad Ribic's paintings are beautiful.
They actually straight up challenged fans to find ALL the easter eggs and you get a prize if you guessed right. I don't think anyone ever fucking did it and probably never will until they release a deluxe edition of the trilogy.
Prime is one of the worst characters ever made. Real talk. He's like a kid who uses "force field" when you play around in kindergarten.
"Nu uh kryptonite doesn't work. No way I can punch reality. Nah I can escape speed force. Oh you detonate a Guradian? Well it doesn't hurt it just transports me. Black Lantern ring kills people? I can ANGER it off my finger."
When rereading during the chronological storytime.
The kind of "oh fuck!" that you say while smiling
Annihilation man, there's too many awesome parts to post.
Can I just say that I appreciate Annihilus's sole motive is "He was a literal insect until stumbling onto cosmic tech, realized he HATED being on the bottom of the totem pole and decided the only real way to be safe was to KILL REALITY"
It's nice. Simple. Insanity.
>Prep time the character brings out his preptime mech suit hes had developed for the time his comrades turned on him.
Like it or not this is completely in line with Bats, you think hes going to try stealthmode ninja detective vs the league? Youre out of your mind.
Yea, it's kinda sad when you think about it.
To this day, I cannot believe that Annihilationwas overshadowed by Civil war. Hell, even Annihilation Conquest was better. Showed how cool Cosmic Marvel could be, and paved the way for revamping tons of characters/books for the next few years.
>I cannot believe that Annihilationwas overshadowed by Civil war
Whats unbelievable about one of the biggest mega events in history overshadowing a small event made up of a bunch of literally whos and Silver Surfer. Annihalation was so good because none of the higher ups at Marvel gave a shit about it and it was just able to do its own thing
Godzilla in Hell. 5 issue run, wrapped up recently. And yea, it was fucking awesome.
yea, you are right. If Civil War hadn't been given as much of a push as it was, who know how Annihilation would of turned out. Probably 6 issues with Reed punking out Annihilus. The What If? Where the two cross over is probably still better than what it could've been.
this and red dwarf getting judged were boss as fuck
Couldnt sleep for a while after I saw this. Fuck, man.
Just hours ago, in fact (erfworlds update for today). It was the 'too obvious to actually happen' thing. Question now is how it'll snap back... or if it?
Honestly, this whole fight (Mega Man and Sonic vs Metal Sonic and Bass) is a GOAT tier fight, probably the best in the entire Archie action line. It's well paced, creative, action packed, there's real tension, and it's a pretty even fight that's one through both skill and ingenuity. I loved it.
perhaps a more somber "oh fuck" but still the same menaing
As crappy as the story I'm posting my picture was, this panel was fucking spooky.
Speaking of Invincible...
