Lots of egregious imagery and contrived parody from this week in comics, and some outright headscratchers as well. Let’s get right into it, and let’s see if PussInLoafers can amass AiPT’s first-ever threepeat on the Panels in Poor Taste Caption Contest!


Batman (2011-) #23.1



Written by Andy Kubert | Art by Andy Clarke

Dave: Finally, a suitable explanation for Joker’s white skin that will keep us awake at night.

Alex: I never knew Olive Oil had such a mean streak. No wonder she wound up with a guy as tough as Popeye.

Jordan: She’s going to get that damn crumb off his face if its the last thing she does.


All-New X-Men #16



Written by Brian Michael Bendis | Art by Stuart Immonen

Dave: Everybody knows you don’t turn away a nice smooch. Stupid Wolverine.

Sean: Kissing Wolverine must be like having your face scrubbed with a wire brush.


Witchblade #169



Written by Tim Seeley | Art by Diego Bernard

Dave: Interesting twist on the classic tentacle rape monster. Usually it’s raping away, not making the girl the centerpiece. What a beautiful arrangement!

Sean: Is the tentacle monster doing a PSA on sexual dysfunction?


The Mocking Dead #1



Written by Fred Van Lente | Art by Max Dunbar

Dave: Those intestines are looking mighty robotic. Maybe it’s the color, but I take my intestines pink or not at all, thank you very much!

Jordan: I never knew the entire body was made of intestines.

Sam: I don’t understand why his arm fell off. It wasn’t hit by the car and the other one is still intact. Did it just decide to fly off?

Sean: It got annoyed that its owner’s guts were comprised of pipes you’d find under your sink.


Screwed #4



Written by Keith Thomas | Art by David Miller

Dave: God knows comics needs more tasty little girl upskirt!

Jordan: I believe Japan has filled that quota several times over by now. I also think that other girl just snapped her spine in two with how she’s twisting herself.

Sam: Look at the bottom right corner. An iPhone? Product placement in a comic? Now that is poor taste!

Sean: That little girl is pretty fucking jacked! Look at those biceps!


Papercutz Slices Vol. 5: The Farting Dead



Written by Stefan Petrucha Art by Rick Parker

Dave: Scientifically, you’d think this actually would be a thing. Think of all the gases the decomposing bodies would need to evacuate. That said, don’t you need a tight buttocks to make that kinda noise? …What, it’s an honest question!

Jordan: Ah-ha! There’s Waldo! Finally found the bastard after all these years.

Sean: Hey, at least when they rip you apart in an orgy of ravenous insatiable hunger, you might get a cheap laugh in between the excruciating agony.


Love Stories (To Die For) #1



Written by Dirk Manning | Art by Richard Bonk

Dave: That’s one way to get a facelift.

Sam: Why would you ruin a nice smooch with your incessant screaming?

Sean: That’s the same thing I say when I go to conventions.


Deadpool Kills Deadpool #3 (of 4)



Written by Cullen Bunn | Art by Salvador Espin

Dave: “Splat” is the noise adamantium skeletons make now? Why is a bare skeleton making a wet noise upon impact?


Batman Black & White (2013-) #1



Written and drawn by Neal Adams et al.

Dave: Is it just me, or is there an awkward bulge going on in Joker’s pants? Fear the bubblegina!

Jordan: So that statistic about most Americans being overweight has finally snuck its way into comics.

Sean: Fat joker kind of looks like Brando.


Army of Darkness vs. Hack/Slash #2



Written by Tim Seeley | Art by Daniel Leister

Dave: What’s more disturbing here, the drool or the fact that Ash thinks of bacon when he sees a nice sexy leg?

Alex: Mmmmmm…bacon… no wonder he’s drooling.

Jordan: Ash, make up your mind! Is it chicken or bacon you want?


Chew #36



Written by John Layman | Art by Rob Guillory

Jordan: I can only imagine how lunch went back in grade school.

Sean: Jordan, I imagine it was a terrifying onslaught of the grossest fantasies imaginable. Kind of like a Brony convention.
