The Best Stuff In Comics: 12-14-15

This is where we present to you, the other best stuff besides the best covers, best story arcs, and best cozy blanket.

Each week we take a look at the other Best Stuff you might have missed in comics...this week.

There may be some teeny tiny spoilers below.

SECRET WARS #8

Best End to a Bad Herald

We all know being a Herald of Galactus isn't easy. The truth is, some of them have been big jerks with no problem in doing their job that results in the death of billions. Here we see the end to one of them--Terrax.

Best Fatality

There's been some debate over how a confrontation between Doom and Thanos should go. Thanos doesn't believe Doom has what it takes to be a god. He knows since he had the Infinity Gauntlet before. Problem is, he doesn't know and Doom possesses a lot of power.

DETECTIVE COMICS #47

Best Use of a Mask

If you spend some time with Batman, you learn to always be prepared. Looks like Damian picked up on this as he has a little special surprise hidden within his mask. Let's just hope he never gets punched square in the center of the mask while he's wearing it.

STAR WARS ANNUAL #1

Best Detail-Oriented Compliment

If you're familiar with all the Star Wars lore, you know Bothans can get the job done.

BATMAN AND ROBIN ETERNAL #10

Best Getting Under Your Skin Moment

If you go up against Azrael, you better watch out for the special touch he has going on.

GWENPOOL SPECIAL #1

Best Monty Python and the Holy Grail Reference

Deadpool and Hawkeye are looking for a holiday mugger. Deadpool can't get his line right.

Best All-Night Office Party

Office parties tend to have a pretty firm ending time. For a certain reason, She-Hulk is trying to keep this party going all night. She even invited her superhero friends.

RED HOOD/ARSENAL #7

Best Bro-Fist Moment

Jason Todd and Tim Drake are getting to spend a lot of time together in BATMAN AND ROBIN ETERNAL and in the Robin War arc. It's almost hard to believe it's the same characters in both with the way they act towards each other.

Here, Tim explains how he never wanted to try to replace Jason when he died.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #3

Cutest Rocket Raccoon Moment

Rocket Raccoon is all attitude. You have to admit he looks pretty dang cute when unconscious. Thankfully Kitty was there to save him from the destruction during the battle.

BATMAN #47

Best Bat-Goal of the Week

Jim Gordon is still getting used to being the new Batman. He's doing a pretty good job here but has found himself getting thrown towards the blades of a helicopter. He has one goal in mind and it's a pretty good one.

No one wants Bat-salad.

Best Reunion (Even Though They Didn’t Know it was a Reunion)

Bruce Wayne is trying to figure out who he is. He's had his memories and brain re-written. He's starting to put things together when he's joined on a bench by an old "friend." If you've read the issue, you know who it is.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #4

Best Typical Ringtone for Spider-Man

What kind of ringtone do you think Spider-Man would have? Maybe this is just his ringtone for when Aunt May calls.

Best Reason Mockingbird Should Leave the Puns to Spider-Man

Mockingbird got a little upgrade to her costume. She tries making a joke. Spidey's jokes are pretty bad. This was worse.

THE WALKING DEAD #149

Strangest Leadership Advisor

Man, do I need to get caught up on this. When you're trying to run a community of survivors during a zombie apocalypse, it just seems there's certain guy, like Negan, you wouldn't want advice from.

Best Prison Request

After this discussion, Negan makes a little request. Perhaps it's not quite appropriate to show what he's asking. All the more reason for you to read the issue.

There's also the return of something pretty crazy on the last page.

ALL-NEW HAWKEYE #2

Best Use of the Word “Hairbrained”

Who actually uses the word hairbrained? Apparently Hawkeye does thirty years from now.

No Caption Provided

We also see the best name for Clint's second dog.

Best Insult

Clint and Kate Bishop find themselves facing the Mandarin. He only wants to talk to Hawkeye. The real one.

BLACK KNIGHT #2

Best Comment on Steve Rogers as Captain America

I love Sam Wilson. I think him in the his new Captain America outfit is cool. Regardless, Steve Rogers will always be Cap to me as well.

HERCULES #2

Best Battle Plan

Hercules has to go stop some giant beasts. Gilgamesh asks him if he remembers the best plan of attack.

That's it this week. Let us know in the comments below what other Best Stuff you dug this past week. Big thanks to @Jawshco, @djfanco, @RyanYoushockMe, and @mak13131313 for their suggestions! If you want to participate or felt we missed some other Best Stuff, don't complain, contribute! Especially if you didn't offer any suggestions. Each week you can @reply me on Twitter a @GManFromHeck by Saturdays using the hashtag #BestStuffInComics. We'll give you a shout out and I'll think you're pretty groovy.

Be sure to always look for the best stuff and always be sure to avoid insulting someone with the power of a god. Especially if you don't want your spine torn out of your body.
