"Panel Discussions" is a unique and comprehensive examination of the comic book creative process. Depending on your interests it is either an exceptional series of comic industry interviews or a technical manual of visual storytelling guidelines. It works for me on both levels. “Panel Discussions” suffers only slightly from brevity of page count and some minor color issues. It is indispensable reading for anyone interested in the subject of sequential art.

Name

The title is a pun, in that it is a collaborative work (i.e. a panel) on the artistry of sequential art, defined in part by graphic panels.

Another interpretation is that at comic book conventions, there are often discussions with writers or artists involved in an upcoming comic, or comic property such as a movie. These discussions are called Panel Discussions, another take on the origin of the book's title.
