Off Panel #32: Happy Accidents with Michael Lark

The Lazarus artist talks his process and the creator-owned experience

Lazarus artist Michael Lark guests on this week’s episode of Off Panel, as we talk about his Image Comics title with writer Greg Rucka. Lark discusses how the book’s going, how he’s handling the schedule, the depth the team goes to in the book, creator-owned comics, his process, the marriage of traditional and digital art, how his art is a happy accident, the fun of drawing comics, what appeals to him about Rucka’s writing, and a whole lot more. It’s a great conversation with one of the best in the business, with a ton of insight into how he works.

You can find Michael’s art in Lazarus with Greg Rucka, and if you haven’t checked it out yet, the first trade is only $9.99. You really should read it. It’s phenomenal.
