Inspired by the playfulness and accessibility of Alton Brown’s TV show “Good Eats,” The Panel Jumper explores the history and lore of comic books; diving deep to discover the stories hidden below and bringing them back above the surface to expose how comic book history, characters, and themes affect us all – regardless of whether or not you read comics.
Created by Ben Laurance and Cole Hornaday, The Panel Jumper aims to be entertaining and engaging to both the hard-core comic book geek, as well as the casual observer. Every week, you can hear them with Chris and Nicole from Comics Dungeon on the Perfect Bound Podcast.
|“The Panel Jumper exposes a history of comics far weirder than I’d imagined. I can’t wait to find out what they unearth next!” –Eisner Award winning artist Gene Ha (Alan Moore’s “Top Ten”)
“Drop dead awesome. That was sheer excellence.” –Paul Gulacy
“The Panel Jumper is witty, informed, and informative – offering commentary on all kinds of aspects of the comic book industry in an entertaining fashion.” –Prof. Ben Saunders, “Do The Gods Wear Capes? Spirituality, Fantasy, and Superheroes”
