Webcomic: Three Panel Soul

"All we got here is whatever sparks our souls at the moment, three panels at a time."
Ian McConville

Three Panel Soul was created by Ian McConville, the artist, and Matt Boyd, the writer, after ending Mac Hall. The comics, which began on September 5th, 2006, generally focus on musing of life. The comics are often done in black and white with comics set inside games done in colour. Every comic consists of exactly three panels, but some continue into a part two.


This webcomic provides examples of:

  • Deliberately Monochrome: Almost all the comics set in 'reality'. To elaborate: If it takes place in a video game world, the comic is in color.
  • Filler: Occasionally a set of doodles or a single sketch.
  • Life Embellished: The majority of the strips are based on Ian's real life with his fiancee/wife, Jess, and Matt's subsequent moving in with them.
  • To Be Continued: Some comics continue into the next installment; such as the "On Rabbits" arc.
