Please help support by donating to this wonderful book project.



About this project

Panel to Panel is a 274 page, full-color book full of insightful interviews, articles, essays and comics.  Panel to Panel explores all aspects of the comics industry, offering a truly unique perspective on the world of words and pictures.  As of now, the book is 100% complete, and review copies have been sent out to a number of well-respected industry creators, and we couldn't be happier with what people are saying:
"John Rovnak's Panel to Panel book is truly a wonderful collection of insightful interviews and thoughtful conversations, conducted with a completely original style and refreshing point of view--well worth its weight in historical depth and value." - Kevin Eastman (Heavy Metal Magazine)
"A cornucopia of fascinating articles, interviews and strips that span the spectrum of the American comics industry, from the extraordinary inner worlds of storytelling giants such as Alan Moore and Dave Sim, through the writing of Jack Kirby and the art of such luminaries as David Mack, Rick Veitch, Jaime Hernandez and Jim Woodring, to topics as diverse as Archie Comics and Robert Crumb and indy stars like James Sturm and James Kolchaka, in Panel to Panel, John Rovnak has produced an eclectic, intelligent, informative  and thought-provoking book that is truly passionate about our medium." - Bryan Talbot (Tale of One Bad Rat, Luther Arkwright, Grandville)
"A wonderful collections of essays, interviews and art that provides an invaluable, eclectic view of the many facets of the comics medium."- Christopher Golden (Baltimore: The Plague Ships)
"It was a real charge to read this first issue - I think its amazingly interesting and well put together." - Paul Jenkins (Wolverine: Origin, Hellblazer, The Sentry)
"VERY interesting, informative, eye-opening book. So good that my ego wishes that I was in it." - Michael Allred (Madman, X-Statix, iZombie)
Panel to Panel brings back the glory days of people writing about comics seriously, but still celebrating it with wide eyed wonder.” - G. Michael Dobbs (Escape! How Animation Broke into the Mainstream in the 1990s)
Panel to Panel is an unusual beast...it is both eclectic and relevant for most of today's audience. It is a great mosaic of how good and how interesting comics can be” - Gary Reed (Caliber Comics)
All that’s left is the generosity of you, the reader, to get it published, shared with the world, and in the hands of a deserving public.  So what will your money do?  If we reach our goal of $16,500, Panel to Panel will be able to be printed at a much higher quality, and offered to you at a much greater savings.  When this book was originally envisioned, a little more than a year ago, it was much smaller and more modest in scale.  The goal was to publish it using modern print-on-demand technology, and offer it to a smaller audience.  As work continued and the overall scope of the project grew, it became obvious that we'd outgrown our initial goal, and out priced ourselves.  In order to reach a larger audience, and keep the book affordable (without cluttering the book with advertisements), traditional printing became an obvious necessity.  Kickstarter and your generous support can help make all of this a reality.
