The Week’s Most Popular Posts: July 13 – 17, 2015

Let’s take a look back at the most popular posts this week on Panels:


I found in these comics the escape that I craved. The stories quickly took me out of my own head, and when I returned, I felt calmer. More like myself.

I took the images from the comics and played them alongside the loop of the destruction and pain I’d witnessed in Nepal. By reading, I found a way to reconcile the jarring normalcy of my surroundings at home with the weight of what I felt.

Overwhelmed by all the #1 issues DC put out last month? Never fear, small friends: I have read them all, and I’m here to guide you. Here’s my advice.

Gravity Falls is back! I can’t tell you how much I love this show. It’s spooky. It’s funny. It always finds a way to throw you for a loop with all the mysteries of the town. It has a funny little girl with a pet pig. It’s everything you could possibly want in a TV show, right?

After the big cliffhanger in March, waiting four whole months to find out what comes next has been brutal. To celebrate the return of one of the creepiest kids shows on television, here are some YA comic books spooky enough to entice Gravity Falls fans. Hopefully they can sate you for those two weeks in between each episode (and give you something to read once we finish this season).

The fan community of Sex Criminals, the letters sent in, the great appearance of Matt Fraction on the Mystery Box show, all underline for me the absolute lack of healthy conversation about sex in our society. If Sex Criminals became such a symbol and reached such a significance, it’s also because it fills a void. And this void is what I am mad about. Is there no space available to talk about sex?

Kate Beaton recently recorded a ‘How to Draw Fat Pony’ tutorial (link at the end of this post) and so we Panelteers have taken it upon ourselves to draw a Delightfulness of Fat Ponies, a Romp of Fat Ponies, or perhaps even a Bevy of Fat Ponies, for your delectation and amusement.

So without further ado, may I present, Panels on Ponies 2015: The Not Quite Fifty Shades of Pony.
