Hey! Do you love my incessant ramblings about comics? Do you wish they were MORE incessant? Then you should check out the brand-new, kickass PANELS, a new site dedicated to celebrating comics!
You already know I can’t resist a good recurring feature – well, I’ve got one over there called Off the Page. Here’s a snippet from the first entry, on the Superman radio serial:
I’ve always been fascinated by superheroes in multimedia – what they draw from the comics, what the comics take back from them, and how they shape the popular perception of their stars.

And there’s no better place to start than The Adventures of Superman – the first multimedia appearance of a hero born in the comics.
I’ve also got a couple of one-off pieces up:
I’ll be linking future pieces over here, but you should follow PANELS via your internet media following apparatuses, because there are a ton of other folks with clever things to say about our beloved funny books. Check them out!
