Every month the team at AiPT! collects our favorite panels from the comics that came out the previous weeks of the month. These panels struck us for some reason or another be it the meaning, the quality of art, or the purpose. This is our chance to share our favorite panels to draw readers attention to the coolest work of the month. It’s also our way of honoring the very best of the best no matter the publisher or creator. So without further ado, please enjoy our favorites of March 2018!
Dog: “So I drizzled her with raspberry syrup.”
Brian: Thanos: the quicker picker-upper.
Dave: Nothing like getting your head slammed into Mjolnir. Yuck.
Connor: Pssh, who needs to be worthy when you can do this.
Dave: The symbol of peace made into a hat. I dig it.
Connor: Shade always has some of the best visuals in comics. Young Animal really brings it out in creators.
Dog: Greek mythology as retold by Hitchcock.
Max: Tippi Hedren is shaking!
Dave: To see Leia name drop Jedha and Scarif in one sentence is kinda unreal.
Brian: Is that a space Mantis Shrimp? Because that’s awesome.
Lisa: Damn! That’s going to need a lot of butter!
Dog: I won’t rant about the impossibility of giant arthropods, I won’t rant about the impossibility of giant arthropods ….
JJ: I can appreciate giant sea monsters as much as the next guy, but it’s lost on me when I get to witness the beginnings of the Mon Calamari being brought into the alliance. Their ships and military prowess are what made the alliance a legitimate threat. Without them, it never would have succeeded.
Dave: This dragon doggo needs a bib.
Lisa: Wipe your mouth first and then maybe I’ll take you with me.
Brian: I feel like the new Bulbasaur evolution has gone a bit squiffy.
JJ: All I can hear is “Not the mama!” via Baby Sinclair from Dinosaurs. Any second now he’s going to whip out a frying pan and start whacking people.
Dave: I love the idea of crazy “The End is Nigh” sign carrier actually being shocked to see it come true.
Max: Weak, when you’re right you always love it.
Dog: Early hypotheses on earthquake origins were … speculative.
Brian: Isn’t this how The Neverending Story starts?
Dave: Orange eyes and a truly haunting menagerie of monsters? YES!
Lisa: Just another cozy evening evening of story telling with my demonic orange eyed friends.
Dog: Great juxtaposition of color and grayscale.
Dave: Imagine a universe where the Sun is on a metal ring circling the Earth. Eat it Copernicus!
Brian: Somehow, this is both better and worse than the concept of a Flat Earth.
Dog: Let’s bring back geocentrism while we’re at it! I’d like to see that homemade rocket guy try to explain what the f--k an epicycle is.
Max: This looks like every piece of jewelry at a craft show in Brooklyn.
Lisa: All the single ladies, all the single ladies.
Dave: Congratulations you know what it’s like to be a vagina during childbirth.
JJ: Oh thank god! It’s just a child being strangled by its own umbilical cord. I thought this might get dark on us for a second there.
Dog: Oh God, like the “home birth” people needed more reasons to needlessly freak out.
Dave: Spring break is crazy in some parts of the world.
Max: My house after I can’t find a piece of my cosplay.
JJ: It’s my fantasy of how I exit the train car on my morning commute brought to life.
Lisa: So that’s a long way from “I am Groot”.
Dave: Of course the minute Groot can talk he won’t shut up.
Brian: Do you think this is the kinda thing he’s been saying the whole time? Or is Rocket just full of it?
Max: Who translates the translator?
JJ: The art is so ridiculously good that I’m actually kind of pissed that they had to distract me with Groot finally decided to use words with more than one syllable.
David H: I’m thinking the next time Groot wants to dance; the conversation between him and Drax won’t be as one sided.
Dave: Ferreyra knows how to lay out a page. Dang.
Brian: That girl is on fire. Fi-ya, fi-ya.
Max: Who said pentagram’s couldn’t be beautiful? Who said it?!
Lisa: Excellent page. Love the contrasting color and the bands of dark images.
Dave: Watch it, you might bump your head on a “Ha”.
Dog: Imagining “Neo Joker” bending in slow motion to avoid batarangs.
Dave: The mind is a construct!
Dog: Even the king of Attilan had an M.C. Escher poster in college.
Dave: Not for nothing, but this is the scariest moment I’ve ever seen in the Walking Dead.
JJ: Do characters in the horror genre never learn?! If you have sex, you WILL die.
Max: Awh, the walker’s just want to join in on the fun! 🙁
Lisa: James was normally a quiet lover but today Shannon thought, “he is really enjoying himself, listen to that moaning.” Poor Shannon.
David H: It must be damn good if you are willing to risk death like that!
Dave: Captain America: President 2020!
Lisa: And he’s walking out the last of Trump’s cabinet.
Dog: S--t, I thought beating up and berating a disabled person was his application!
Max: Allergy season kills me to brah.
Dog: That first panel looks like Easter in Hell. TOPICAL!
Dave: Even Darth Vader writes fan fiction.
Dog: Oh sure, retcon the one prequel people actually like.
JJ: It would have made more sense to have Vader drown him in sand.
Dave: Dre’s new Beats are sick!
Dog: The ’70s truly are back. Punk’s not dead and LSD’s in fashion.
Lisa: What’s with the weird ghost baby appearing out of a square?
Alyssa: Not only is this a pivotal moment in the story, but the dramatic movement and colors emphasize the supernatural elements and gore. Fantastic collaboration by the whole team.
Dave: Burning Man 2018 was the heaviest, ever.
Dave: The classic Batman pose is killer and you gotta love that vampire Batman!
Brian: This would only be more metal if he had been throwing up the horns while diving down to kick the asses of his own doppelgangers.
Connor: I’m pretty sure top right Batman is throwing up horns.
Dave: The scope of size is impressive especially with Plastic Man stretching out like that.
Brian: Everytime I read the title of this comic I hear it in my mom’s exasperated voice: “Terrific.” Should I talk to someone about that?
David H: “What did I tell you about breaking curfew?”
Dog: The most persistent street performer ever. “Hey man, I know you watched me juggle flaming bowling pins today. PUT MONEY IN THE CUP”
Dave: That is some master class captioning.
Dog: That’s what you get for rigging THE F-----G ring toss game. I TOLD MY GIRL I’D WIN HER THAT 5-FOOT GIRAFFE!
Max: HIGHWAY TO HELL! *guitar shredding*
