On this week’s Off Panel, David talks with the cartoonist behind the upcoming I Hate Fairyland, Skottie Young, about his first foray into creator-owned comics with his new Image book. They talk about how the book came together, his affinity for Image Comics, the quality of 90’s comics, the impact Marvel had on him, humor in comics, the influence of music on his work, cultural attitudes towards media, and much more.
