The Best Stuff In Comics: 3-9-15

This is where we present to you, the other best stuff besides the best covers, best story arcs, and best bag of peanuts.

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 I.O.U.

Batman's had it rough lately. He's lost a bunch of his weapons and gadgets. It seems the few he had left kept getting trashed throughout this series. Needing to get to a certain location, he borrows some transportation. Because Batman is a pretty honest fellow, he does leave a pretty obvious I.O.U. promising to pay back what he's taken.

Best Indiana Jones Hat Rescue

Best Sonic the Hedgehog Reference

Spider-Woman was chasing after Porcupine and makes a remark about his speed as he tried to get away. I suppose she does know the difference between a porcupine and a hedgehog. She was likely just giving the guy a hard time.

Best “I’ve got a bad feeling about this” Moment

If you've seen the Star Wars movies, you might have seen their language appear from time to time. While it obviously looks alien to us, there is a way to translate it, doing a simple search online will show you how to translate it. You can type in Aurebesh to see how Basic can be translated (or just click HERE). Using that translator, you can see what Artoo's response was to Leia's question.
