Writer Jason Aaron joins Off Panel this week to talk about what he’s been up to this year, namely, his new BOOM! series Once Upon a Time at the End of the World. Aaron discusses where things are headed for him, being at the culmination of something, the development of Once Upon a Time, the appeal of limited series, the three pronged nature of the story, its two leads, how they evolved, why the book needed three artists, it ending up at BOOM!, scratching other itches, the value of being uncomfortable, long runs on a title in 2022, his goals for The Punisher, pitching comics, and more.
You can find Aaron on Twitter and his work in Once Upon a Time at the End of the World, Avengers, The Punisher, and more.
