Tonight marks the final installment of One Panel of Pain, a theme that I’ve had a lot of fun with over the past few months. So while we’re all looking forward to the next theme, let it never be said that the ISB let this one pass without going out in style!
The One Man Army Corps beats people up pretty much constantly in the pages of Jack Kirby’s O.M.A.C., without which no fan of awesome should be.
Your honor, I’d like to present Exhibit A: One Panel of Pain!
From the exceedingly Edgeworth-heavy Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney v.2, which could really use more Franziska von Karma. But really, what couldn’t?
Do you have any idea how much it sucks to be kicked in the face by a guy who has trod the jeweled thrones of the Earth beneath his sandaled feet?
That guy does.
From The Savage Sword of Conan #44 by–who else?–Roy Thomas and John Buscema.
…every problem looks like a genocidal super robot.
From Kurt Busiek and George Perez’s rip-roaring Ultron Unlimited, truly the finest Marvel-Super-Heroes-versus-Army-of-Killer-Robots comic of the late 90s.
Because you know what? One Panel of Pain just hasn’t had enough kicks to the face.
Then again, are there ever enough kicks to the face?
A classic kick to the face from the equally classic The Question #18, by Denny O’Neil and Denys Cowan.
Sure, my recent car trouble may have lasted a little longer than One Panel of Pain, but hey…
…coulda been worse!
Bean Bandit punching dudes through car windows is just one of many awesome things that happens in Kenichi Sonada’s Gunsmith Cats, the comic book that gun enthusiasts, classic car fans and perverts can all agree is totally rad.
Thus completing the One Panel of Pain Hulk trifecta, we proudly bring you one of the ISB’s favorite battles: Man vs. Beast!
I guess what I’m saying here is that if you want to see giant panels of people getting punched out, Essential Rampaging Hulk is probably a good bet.
