Off Panel #144: Ledger Man with Gerry Duggan

In this week’s episode of Off Panel, writer Gerry Duggan joins the podcast to discuss his new Image series, Analog, and his views on writing. Duggan talks about the ComicsPRO experience, his comics retail past, comic naming conventions, working with the Allreds, his wave of creator-owned books, Analog vs. reality, whether he needed to mix things up, his time writing for television, the surprising script that helped him get Deadpool, why the lead of Analog is such a perfect gateway into its world, his collaborators on the book, working with John McCrea on Dead Rabbit, and more.

You can find Duggan on Twitter and his work in Deadpool, Infinity Countdown, and Analog, his upcoming title from Image. Dead Rabbit, his upcoming book at Image with John McCrea, is coming this summer. You can also find the Wired article we discuss in the piece here.
