Off Panel #115: An Economy of Lines with Paul Azaceta

On this week’s episode of Off Panel, artist Paul Azaceta joins the show to discuss his work on the Image/Skybound title, Outcast. He discusses how he got started in comics, the Alex Toth influence, finding efficiencies in his art, his process on Outcast, the benefits of digital art, how his process has evolved, why he and colorist Elizabeth Breitweiser jive so well, Outcast’s covers, whether he as trepidatious about signing onto the project, the value of working on an ongoing, the book’s inset panels, and more.
