    Hello and welcome back to Saturday Morning Panels!

    As we all know, there was no New Comic Book Day for the first time in recent history, with the shutdown of Diamond Comics Distributors due to COVID-19. Rather than put our column on hold, we took a page out of our Special Edition playbook and bring you our favorite panels around a particular theme. This week: #1 issues.

    So kick-back, watch out for spoilers, and talk about your favorites in the comments section below! And if you have an idea for a theme for an upcoming installment, leave it in the comments. Stay safe, wash your hands, and stop touching your face. (Reading a comic will help with that last one!)
