Off The Panel Classic - Ultimate Spider-Man



In this reprint of a classic OPP episode, Aristo' Alex and Jam' James turn back the clock to the year 2000, when MTV's irrelevance was still relevant, America could not care less about the electoral process, and Spider-Man was being rebooted for what was certainly going to be the only time. What began as a last-ditch effort from a dying company to reach a new audience would soon become a cultural touchstone for an entire generation of comics fans, and for over 100 issues Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley crafted a run whose highs, lows, and filler issues would shape the medium for years to come. Listen as our past selves share their own experiences with the book that helped cement their love of comics, and talk about that time Gwen Stacy became Carnage.

Off The Panel Classic - Wolverine: Origin


In this reprint of a classic OPP episode, The Men Who Would Be Unreal unite for the very first time to share their love for one of the most underrated stories to come out of modern Marvel: Paul Jenkins', Andy Kubert's, and Richard Isanove's "Origin". From his humble beginnings playing hoop and stick, to his disturbing transformation into the animal he was destined to become, your hosts explore the tragic first years of  Wolverine, and laugh at the very concept of Marvel ever redoing old event comics. Ha ha, we were so young.

Off The Panel CLASSIC - Daredevil: The Man Without Fear


In this reprint of a classic episode from the fondly remembered Off-Panel Podcast, the men who would one day form Graphic Novelism meet to discuss the origin story that defined one of Marvel’s most underrated superheroes. Listen as three podcasters without fear discuss Frank Miller’s last great superhero story, how cinematic fiction can be achieved in the pages of a comic, and most importantly, the lengths a blind man will go to in order to eventually beat up Stilt-Man. This is Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s Daredevil: The Man Without Fear.

OFF THE PANEL - Batman: HUSH

In the first returning installment of the series that examines all literature involving capes, cowls, and tights, Aristocratic Alex Koch and Maniacal Mike Napier journey upon a flashback to the year 2002 as they revisit the classic comic book arc that took the genre by storm and re-launched the careers of two of the industry's top talents. It's a game of chess that involves conspiracy, murder, romance, betrayal, and the most epic confrontation between The Dark Knight and The Man of Steel ever committed to page. But why does this story deserve the acclaim it once heralded, and what does it have to say about the legacy of Batman? What impact should the arc have had on DC Comics' bestselling title? And why has the story been mislabeled for years as a mystery? All this and more are discussed as the two break down Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee's 12-issue opus - BATMAN: HUSH.
