Off Panel #42: Heartthrobs with Christopher Sebela and Robert Wilson IV

This week’s Off Panel is a rare double feature, as Christopher Sebela and Robert Wilson IV, the creative team behind the upcoming Heartthrob at Oni Press, join the show to talk their upcoming book. The pair talks how the book first came together, their creative process, Fleetwood Mac’s fit on the book, researching the era of the book (and watching heart transplant YouTube videos), what they did to promote the project, what made Oni perfect partners for them, the story behind their Jamie McKelvie variant and much more. It’s a great chat with an excellent upcoming book.

You can find Chris on Twitter, Robert on Twitter and you can find their book, Heartthrob #1, in comic shops on April 13th.
