This used to be a video series. It's not anymore. Each week we take a look at the other Best Stuff you might have missed....
There may be some teeny tiny spoilers below.
Best “Revenge” After an Overlooked Typo
Last issue there was a slight typo in the opening credits. Kate Bishop was listed as Kate Barton. Some readers were questioning if this was a typo or if we somehow missed Clint adopting Kate or some such thing. Mistakes happen. It's great to see Marvel embracing it and turn it into a little bit of humor before the issue even begins.
Best Advice During a Debriefing with Maria Hill
Best Returning Character
Back in October, we asked Jeff Lemire if Pizza Dog would be appearing in this series. He was a little vague about it. Looks like we may have our answer now.
Although, that tail-wagging sound FX...
Best Side Effect of Working with Doctor Strange’s Archives
Best side effect or worst?
We can imagine that working for S.H.I.E.L.D. can be dangerous. It appears there's levels of danger we haven't even thought about.
Best Terminator Line
Best Family Reunion
While we love the big splashy action and funny moments in comics, we're also suckers for the touching moments as well. In the current NOVA series, Sam Alexander has been trying to find his missing father, a former Nova Corps member himself. This might be a tiny spoiler but Sam and his father have already been reunited. Now it's time for the rest of the family to see him.
But how long will this happiness last...?
Best Alternate Versions fo Batman’s Rogues Gallery
My complaint about the Convergence books was we didn't get to see enough of the characters being allowed to actually do their own thing and the two-issue format was just too short. This book has been pretty great given those constraints. Getting to see the GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT Batman Rogues was fantastic.
Best Explosion Sound FX
If you're going to have an explosion in a big action comic, you have to do it right. In my opinion, adding a series of three or more vowels together makes it that much more impressive.
Best Scene in the Rain
This isn't the first time we've had a scene in the rain. Drawing them can be tricky. You want to do it just right to really make it look cool. Kaare Andrews does a really fine job here.
Best Grossest Scene
If you've been reading INVINCIBLE, you know Ryan Ottley doesn't hold back. Especially during the action scenes. We get a pretty gross scene. Maybe it's not for the squeamish but we had to include it here.
That's gonna leave a mark.
Best Flaming Set of Wheels
In this little corner of Battleworld, we got to see the "G-Man" cause a distraction for the others to get away. This involved him jumping into his flaming car.
Best Alternate Reality Costume
Some of these stories feel like glorified WHAT IF...? ones. Regardless, we are getting some really cool moments like this awesome Moon Knight costume.
Best Redeeming Moment for Hal Jordan
Hal Jordan kind of got a bum rap when he became Parallax. He did redeem himself during The Final Night but was that enough? In the final issue of CONVERGENCE, he wants the opportunity to do more. Does he get his chance? We'll have to wait and see.
Best Fact About Math
A lot of people have a certain way of looking at Mathematics. They immediately make it out to be this horrible and mysterious thing. The truth is, it's not so bad. You might be aware that I taught high school Math for many years. In this issue, we see the intelligent M.O.D.O.K. state a fact about Math.
The Math is quite simple. And it all adds up.
That's it this week. Let us know in the comments below what other Best Stuff you dug this past week. Thanks to @DJFanco, @AlexLaVelle2005, and @ploiken for their suggestions. If you want to participate or felt we missed some other Best Stuff, you can @reply me on Twitter at @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 situations where someone needs to tell you to go with them if you want to live.
