Coming Soon: PanelxPanel #16 – Giant Days

PanelxPanel #16 - Giant DaysPanelxPanel #16 – Giant Days is on sale later month, covering US publisher Boom’s Giant Days series, by John Allison, Max Sarin, Whitney Cogar and Jim Campbell.

PanelxPanel is a digital magazine celebrating the medium of comics, edited by Strip Panel Naked host Hass Otsmane-Elhaou, and features a rotating set of writers ranging from critics to professionals, fans and comic stores.

Each issue of the Eisner-nominated monthly digital magazine celebrating the comics medium has two halves across its 90+ ad-free pages. The first, a focus on a particular comic and featuring a series of essays, interviews, process pieces and an exclusive Strip Panel Naked column all focused around that comic.

The second half features regular articles, interviews, craft essays, a comic, and a series of comic recommendations from a range of comic-related voices.

This is a true celebration of the medium with every issue, looking at all the elements that make comics an interesting art form and great place to tell visual stories. A magazine that cares about comics.

This issue features a series of interviews with the Giant Days team on their work, as well as a series of in-depth articles about the comics.

There’s also an exclusive Strip Panel Naked piece on storytelling approach, alongside other features on theme and story.

For the regular features, Ram V interviews the rest of the team from These Savage Shores, while Ganzeer discusses how he builds each chapter of The Solar Grid as the sole creative force behind it. There’s also a Final Thoughts column on endings in comics, 5 Questions With… and the Comic Showcase!

Plus, of course, the usual bunch of recommendations from writers, artists, fans, critics and shops as to what they’ve been enjoying this month.
