On this week’s Off Panel, Marvel editor Wil Moss guests on the show to talk about his work and experience in the world of editorial. They talk his expansive list of titles, how those books came together, his approach to casting the titles he works on, the excellence of Squirrel Girl, how difficult it is to peg The Vision with a single genre, the freedom he gives creators he works with, how he got into the editorial world, what a day in the life of a Marvel editor is like, how some specific issues come together, the artists and assistant editors he works with, where he goes to discover new creators, how his job changes depending on the experience level of the creators he’s working with, how the season model changes his plans, and more.
Plus, stay tuned to the end for a special message at the end from David about the future of Off Panel and what’s going on at SKTCHD.
You can find Wil on Twitter and his work in The Mighty Thor, Black Panther, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Howard the Duck, Ant-Man, Angela, The Vision, The Ultimates, Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat and the upcoming Vote Loki (that’s a lot of books).
