Three Panel Soul is a slice-of-life (and occasionally gaming) webcomic written by Matt Boyd and illustrated Ian McConville. A derivative of the pair's previous webcomic, Mac Hall, Three Panel Soul offers a more somber look at current events, gaming, the author's lives, and life itself in a three-panel format. Some characters from Mac Hall (namely the authors) reappear in Three Panel Soul.

The comic began on September 5th, 2006 and joined Hiveworks in 2015[1].


Three Panel Soul strips are mostly independent, offering introspective commentary on moments inspired by the author's lives. McConville, Boyd, and McConville's wife have made frequent appearances in the comic as a result. Several recurring fictional characters, such as a mage who works in Human Resources, have also appeared in loose story lines.
