The Best Stuff In Comics: 6-29-15

This is where we present to you, the other best stuff besides the best covers, best story arcs, and best lawn sprinkler system.

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

There may be some teeny tiny spoilers below.

LOKI AGENT OF ASGARD #15

Best Reflections in Bullet Casings

Odin and Freyja have cranked up their weaponry in their battle against the Evil Loki and his army. Check out how shiny those bullet casings are.

Best "Too Much Information" Tidbit About Odin

Things have been a little tense between Odin and his wife. Basically Freyja has kind of had enough of the guy. During the battle, she makes a little comment that goes unheard by Odin. It's stuff like this you don't really want to think about.

DAREDEVIL #16

Best Description of Kingpin

Daredevil and Kingpin don't get along. Matt had to go to Kingpin and gives us an interesting description on how Kingpin came about.

No Caption Provided

Best Disturbing Collection of Artwork

During their conversation, Kingpin takes Matt into a room where he has an art collection. Obviously Matt can't really see what's on the paintings or just isn't focusing on any paint and brush marks. Looks like Kingpin's maybe a little obsessed?

BATGIRL #41

Best Batman '89 Homage

There's a new Batman in town, in case you haven't heard. Batgirl has her first run in with him and asks that infamous question.

No Caption Provided

Best Response to Jim Gordon's Decision to Shave his Mustache

Jim Gordon has gone through some changes. Barbara sees them for the first time and says what we're all kind of thinking.

No Caption Provided

Speaking of mustaches...

SUPERMAN #41

Best Use of a Fake Mustache

We know life in Metropolis is pretty hectic and people don't have time to focus on the little things. When Clark and Jimmy are unaware of who the bad guy they're investigating is, leave it to Lois to point out he was hiding his true identity behind a simple fake mustache.

No Caption Provided

Best Example of How Super Superman is

Superman is, simply put, a hero. It doesn't matter who you are, he will do whatever he can to save you. Even if you try shooting him in the face.

No Caption Provided

PLANET HULK #2

Best Explanation for Bad Breath

Some people have bad breath. Maybe they don't realize it or can't help it. We do find out why Devil Dinosaur has bad breath.

No Caption Provided

SONS OF THE DEVIL #2

Most Interesting Example of Something that Weights 12 Pounds

Travis is moving in with his girlfriend. We find out a little too much about his bowel movements.

No Caption Provided

GRAYSON #9

Best First Issue Callback

The latest issue of GRAYSON starts a new arc and direction. It also recalls a moment from the very first issue. It's interesting to see the different perspective on the scene as it plays out.

On the left is the two page opening from issue #9; on the right is the two page opening from issue #1.

No Caption Provided

Best Question About Grayson Many Men and Women in the DCU Likely Have

Dick Grayson is about to go undercover. He has to dress up to blend in. He asks a simple question but it could be taken a different way. Of course we know the answer but...

No Caption Provided

PUNISHER #19

Best Grenade Punt

The Punisher is out trying to do as much as he can before the world ends. He has some bad guys in sight and causally walks up and punts a grenade at them.

No Caption Provided

We probably shouldn't show you the results, right? We should try to refrain from showing too much violence, right?

Oh, what the heck. Here's what happened next.

No Caption Provided

GOTHAM BY MIDNIGHT #6

Best Star Wars Reference

We all know there's some sketchy places in Gotham City. But what about the Powers Corporation?

No Caption Provided

FIGHT CLUB 2 #2

Best "I Want You To Hit Me as Hard As You Can" Moment

Sure it's from the first Fight Club. But there's a reason it's said here. It's a little different but not really if you really think about it.

No Caption Provided


THE INFINITY GAUNTLET #2

Best New Member of the Nova Corps

Earth is in a bad place. At least, this domain is. A Nova Corps member returns to help her family out. The only is to make them part of the Corps. What about the family dog?

No Caption Provided


She gets to join them too!

GREEN LANTERN: LOST ARMY #1

Best Festive New Lantern Color

Okay, it's not really a new color. It's more of a combination of two. But Guy Gardner shows up with not one, but two power rings. Ho, ho, ho, indeed.

No Caption Provided

THE LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE #2

Best Finger Magic Trick

Luther and Petra are forced to work with someone they don't care for. Petra has no problem showing how she really feels.

No Caption Provided

HOWARD THE DUCK #4

Best "Thanks Obama" Use in a Comic This Week

I have to admit, I didn't think I'd actually see a mention of Obama like this in a comic.

No Caption Provided

Best Multiple Failed Attempts With the Same Pick Up Line

I guess Johnny Storm doesn't know when to give up. Has this line ever worked? He even tried using it in the present with pretty much the same results.

No Caption Provided

That's it this week. Let us know in the comments below what other Best Stuff you dug this past week. Thanks to @DJFanco and @RyanYoushockMe 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 be careful when and how you use that finger magic trick.

Excellent article as always!

In the Superman disguise one, did Lois admit the bit where fake glasses fooled her for so long? or was she just taking out some frustration on the two detective-genius'?

(Fake mustache disguise FTW!)

My first thought when I saw Dick all dressed up was "Is that Archer?"

On Nova Dog.

OK, I don't know if it's ridiculous or not since Green Lantern and other corps (Nova's inspiration) had animal members, especially Dexstarr. But it's post apocalyptic and dark story but it's also in a lovechild-world of Game of Thrones and Disneyland.

This art is amazing, if Dick does become gay he could bet the Bruce Wayne of the LGBT crowd.

Also Whats the explanation behind how no one knows who he is after his public unmasking?

No I was never a nightwing fan. I was just curious as to what was done so no one could tell it was him.Is there an image online that shows how people see him.
