Writer Joe Kelly is the guest in this week’s episode of Off Panel, and he joins the show to talk about his career in the past, present and future. We talk about how his animation work with Man of Action has changed his approach to comics, why he keeps coming back to them, the emotional appeal of I Kill Giants, the upcoming film adaptation of that comic, returning to Deadpool, what makes that character so very popular, his artistic partners, the resurrection of Four Eyes, and a whole lot more. It’s a fantastic conversation with one of the real gems in comics.
You can find Joe on Twitter and his work in the upcoming Spider-Man/Deadpool from Marvel and Four Eyes from Image.
