The Week’s Most Popular Posts: February 2 – 6, 2015

This post originally appeared on Panels, which is now Book Riot Comics

Let’s take a look back at the week that was, here on Panels:

On April 10, Netflix cuts the ribbon on 13 episodes of their all new Daredevil live action series. That makes April 10-12 a truly rad weekend to be a Marvel fan with access to a Netflix account, and a truly awful one if you don’t.

Let’s have a look-see.

If you’re looking for something to read for the Read Harder Challenge: Comics with  Villains for Protagonists or you just want to read the best superhero comic ever, Thunderbolts is for you! Forgot about that MarvelNOW comic you may have heard about that featured Deadpool, Punisher, Elektra, and a couple other jabronies! I want to talk about the REAL Thunderbolts. This was, hands down, my absolute favorite superhero book ever. The team that debuted in the ‘90s from Kurt Busiek and Mark Bagley featuring the Masters of Evil disguised as a team of heroes who replaced the Avengers after they were declared dead in the wake of the Onslaught disaster. The thing was, you could never really tell who was actually trying to be hero or who was just faking it and actually plotting to take over the world. This book clocked in with just under 200 issues after Marvel decided to can it, so it can be a little daunting to figure out where to start. If you’re a fan of the movie The Dirty Dozen, or DC’s Suicide Squad comic this book is for you. Here are some great arcs that you should be able to hop on and check out with little confusion.

Happy February, folks! Winter is in full swing, so grab some comics to keep you warm. Or a hot toddy. Hot Toddies are good for that. Here are the comics I’m cuddling up with this week.

What would possess a 31-year-old woman to sew Lumberjanes badges onto her favorite hoodie (stabbing herself with a needle several times in the process, I should note)? Let us investigate, using Issue #10 as our touch-point.
