All of us are very excited about this new collaboration, as it promises to expose PPP to a much larger audience, while retaining the questions-oriented, quality interrogation of the comics form that you have (we hope!) come to expect from Roy, Frank, Qiana, Adrielle, Michael, and our frequent guests.

KrazyIgnatzPupAs part of the transition to our new location, so to speak, we are having a special event: A PencilPanelPage roundtable! The PPP logo references a number of different, historically and theoretically important comics. Over the next five weeks we will produce a special series of posts, all on the first such reference: George Herriman’s Krazy Kat.

This sroundtable will be cross-hosted both here and at The Hooded Utilitarian. After that, we will move full-time to the new location (but you can still find the link here, if you forget!)

As a final note, we want to thank everyone who has stuck with us during the first two years, and we hope you will find that the move to HU provides an even more vibrant environment for first-rate discussion of our favorite medium.

Thanks for everything!

The PencilPanelPage gang!
