If you haven’t checked out the PANEL… a blog of movie reviews in comic strip format… well, first, check it out…
Then, check out the call to submit your own comic movie review.
The PANEL is one of my little summer projects, and it’s been a blast. It is truly fun (after some hours of other adjectives… Like,”mystifying”, “perplexing”, and “aha!-ish”, in that order) to try and put down one’s thoughts on a movie (or likewise, book, music, etc) within a few drawings.

Oh I sure could go for an old fashioned right now. Mm mm bourbon. “Mm mm bourbon” Pete Troublesome said, letting the drink slide down his throat, “Did I ever tell you about the time I got drunk on bourbon and robbed a seven eleven naked? Well.
