Off-Panel: June 18, 2015

This post originally appeared on Panels, which is now Book Riot Comics

Our daily round-up of news around the comics space, from the gutters and beyond.

“Two-Face, as we all know, is one of Batman’s biggest nemeses, and he gets his name from the fact that the left side of his face is grossly disfigured and the right side of his face is normal. But anyone who’s given it even three seconds of thought will agree that it would’ve been way cooler and scarier if he was deformed from the nose down and then normal above that. I am steadfast in this opinion.”

I love everything about ClickHole, starting with the name. (It’s a joke article website, before anyone gets too impassioned.)

Game of Thrones quotes on Peanuts comics. Nice work, Buzzfeed.

“The plan for this project is to bring it back each year to deliver an evolving view of how artists live and how things are changing for them in this time of industry boom, while refining it as years pass. It starts with this first survey, though. The hope is an effort like this might give publishers, writers, readers, reviewers and up-and-coming artists a more comprehensive view of a world they may not fully understand. In the process, we might even answer that question asked at the open of this piece.”

This article/survey on what the life of a comic artist is like is fascinating, for the stats-obsessed among us (which by now you know includes me).
