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.) (I met Noelle Stevenson twice at Toronto Comics Arts Festival because I stood in her line twice and she was lovely both times.) So, as I am sure was true for many of you, when I heard the announcement that Stevenson would be writing the new Runaways, I was like

All In The Family: A Father and Daughter Talk Comics Old and New | Panels

In honor of Father’s Day, I decided to interview the OG nerd in my family: my dad. One of my earliest memories of comics is finding his stash in my grandmother’s attic, and below we talk about how they got there, how comics have changed over the years, and those foam rocks on Star Trek.

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. More than one panelist noted that that’s where new artists are coming up and making waves before getting assigned to mainstream projects — witness the rise of Noelle Stevenson, for example. It’s also an easy way to get a fix during a light week. (At least it is if you’re anything like me and trying to keep your pull list lean.)
