I’m Just a Teenage Dirtbag Superhero: Noelle Stevenson and Runaways #1 | Panels

My relationship (as a reader) with the Runaways is much the same as the one I have with Noelle Stevenson — I am not (yet) a completist, but I love them a whole lot and pick them up whenever I can. (If I could, I would absolutely be on the Runaways before any other superhero team, and/or accept a role as the reincarnation/lost twin sister/newly discovered clone of Gert.)

Rediscovering Webcomics | Panels

At the awesome experience that was the Toronto Comics Arts Festival, it became abundantly clear to me that I should be reading more webcomics.
