Panel of the Week – Raiders, Robot Brains, and Rita Hayworth

Every Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, She-Hulk looked at cat pictures. This week, Kraven is on Twitter.

I could take or leave pop culture references in comics. For every line that makes me guffaw, there’s another that makes me groan. Still, I’m a sucker for a well-placed, subtle nod to something I love.

From nuns to ninja turtles, this is Panel of the Week!
