The Panelled Page
Ok, trying something new, let’s see how it goes. It’s a very basic idea: each week we’ll choose five panels, or sequence of panels (sequences must encompass no more than one traditional comic page, splash pages included) and put them into a post- just another excuse to show off more lovely comic art, really. Selection criteria is pretty broad- anything old, new, funny, beautiful, poignant or just something we really, really like for no discernable reason (may even extend to themes sometimes). Opening this up to everyone, if you want to send in your suggestions via the ‘contact the author’ link at the bottom of the post, please do so, otherwise I’m afraid you’re at the mercy of my taste, and a whole load of Batman.
Panel from the 60′s Japanese manga version of Batman
Kinky and Cosy by Nix
Panel from Daredevil by Bill Sienkiewicz and Frank Miller
Panel from Shimura Judge Dredd magazine by Frank Quitely
And one of my all-time favourites to close up: panels from Blacksad: Arctic Nation by Juan Diaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido
