PanelxPanel is the Eisner Award-winning digital magazine celebrating the medium of comics. It’s edited by Tiffany Babb and Strip Panel Naked host Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, and features a rotating set of critics, fans, and professionals.
This month the features are all about IDW's adaptation of Stephen and Owen King's Sleeping Beauties, by Rio Youers, Alison Sampson and Triona Farrell. We interview the team, and a series of essays take you further into the art and craft of the comic.
