The Best Stuff In Comics: 2-23-15

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

This used to be a VIDEO FEATURE for over one hundred episodes. We've changed the format to a text version as most seem to prefer it this way. And don't forget to take the poll at the end.

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


Best Way to Speed up Fishing

There was a lot of good stuff in this week's BATMAN AND ROBIN. While they're still getting used to Damian being back and with superpowers, Alfred insists Bruce and Damian go fishing.

Leave it to Damian to find a way to speed things up. He even has a quick way to get the boat back home.

Best Cool Hand Luke Reference

You thought Damian was difficult before? Bruce definitely has his hands full.

Best Reflection

These scene alone, Damian walking through a tube to the Justice League Watchtower, makes me really want to visit the place.

Best Meeting Between Two “Teenage” Heroes

I know we don't usually have this many things from one issue. But when Damian and Billy Batson (Shazam) meet, it's pretty great.

Best Reason to Lock Your Window Before Singing and Dancing in Your Room

Oh Ganke. Only he could get away with singing a Joan Jett song (and this particular one) while dancing around in his underwear.

Best Dawn of the Dead Reference

Some people dread going to the mall. There are some advantages to hiding out there. Especially when you're being chased by some insane evil creature thing.

Best Verbal Fencing

Bloodshot and Geomancer are doing their best to get along. There's some really good remarks flying back and forth between them.

Best Pokemon Reference

What? A Pokemon reference? Well, Silk has been locked up for ten years. So her cultural references will be a little limited.

Best Way to Stick Up for Your Friend

Sometimes your best friend might say or do some questionable things. But when someone insults them, that's not cool. A true friend will defend them.

Best Transformation

The Black Vortex has been tempting the heroes. You can get a serious upgrade but of course there must be a catch, right? A couple have already given in, including young Angel.

It's almost scary that his new design has a death-like appearance to it.


Best Training Sequence

Batgirl's been going through a rough time lately. Thankfully she has Black Canary to help her keep her head on straight.

No Caption Provided

Also, that does sound like a pretty crappy app.


Best Pre-Recorded Message

This might be a spoiler--Cyclops died! He's dead, gone, no more. Uh-huh. In case that ever does happen, he does have a plan in place for his students.

Best Exit

The more I see of Eva Bell, the more I love her character. Looks like she just graduated from Cyclops' school.

NOVA #27

Best Way to Deal with a Captured Supervillain

What do you do when you're a superhero and you capture an evil villain? Nova tries dropping him off but they tell him that's not how it's done.

Best Inspiration to do the Right Thing

Wonder Woman is a glorious character. Who else could inspire and convince even the most stubborn-headed characters to do the right thing?

No Caption Provided

Plus she'd demolish you if you let her down.

Warning: the next couple contain a bit of violence.


Best “Hammer Time” Moment

We had to throw in a Hammer Time reference. This could also be Best Fatality. Or even the best reason you wouldn't want to live in the Mortal Kombat world.

Best Action Packed Issue

Ouch, indeed. This week's issue of DEADLY CLASS was pretty insane with all the action and violence. It was hard to narrow it down to just one thing or one thing that wasn't full of gruesome violence and profanity. This was a great issue with a doosey of a cliffhanger.

No Caption Provided

Yeah, this book's not for kids.

Best Poll of the Week

Last week the poll dealt with whether or not Batman prevents crime and supervillains or if he inspires them. You can check out the rest of the results HERE.

This week, we want to know if you've ever been caught singing and dancing.

(Note: if you get a "session expired" notice, refresh the page).

That's all I came up with this week. Let us know in the comments below what other Best Stuff you dug this past week. Thhanks to @djfanco, @simonsezstuff, @mak13131313, and Gregg Katzman. If you want to participate or felt we missed some other Best Stuff, you can @reply me on Twitter at @GManFromHeck by Fridays using the hashtag #BestStuffInComics. We'll give you a shout out and I'll think you're pretty groovy.

Share your thoughts by answering the poll question. Be sure to always look for the best stuff and try to make sure you're at least wearing clean underwear if you're going to do some singing and dancing in your bedroom.
