Off Panel #19: Getting Sassy with Cliff Chiang

The artist of Image's latest hit talks collaboration and creative freedom

The artist of Paper Girls, Cliff Chiang, joins the show to talk about collaborating with Brian K. Vaughan, Matt Wilson and Jared K. Fletcher on the new hit Image title. Chiang shares his thoughts on bringing the era of the book to life, what he did to research it, what working with the team is like, how his past work in editorial has helped him be a better artist, the creative freedom of creator-owned, covers, and much more.

You can find Cliff on Twitter, on the web, and in Paper Girls every month-ish from Image Comics.
