- Author BiographyHi, I'm Karson, the founder of Icomic Panels. Growing up I never had any comic books. The nearest shop was probably three hours away from my tiny hometown of less than 150 people. Instead I fell in love with cartoons. Spider-Man and X-Men were my absolute favourites. Wolverine and Spider-Man became my goto costumes to jump around in whether it was Halloween or not! When I moved away for University one of the first things I did was start an unwieldy pull list at my local comic book shop. I read anything I could get my hands on. As time went on my pull list lessened as I needed money for things other than comics, like ramen noodles. I became fascinated with the history of comic books a few years later after reading Sean Howe's Marvel: The Untold Story. My pull list shrank even more as I began reading and researching older issues and storylines. Icomic Panels blends together my love of the medium of comic books and their history, giving a glimpse into how the characters and stories we love today came to be.
