Off Panel #59: One Man Band with Andrew MacLean

Cartoonist Andrew MacLean joins the show to talk about one of my favorite books, his Image Comics title Head Lopper. Maclean shares how the book came together, the quarterly format and doing things his way, his hyper DIY mentality, the Mike Mignola connection and influence, his creative process, making a good villain and action sequence, holding things back from readers, and more.

You can find Andrew on Twitter, on Tumblr, and his work in Head Lopper, including the first trade, The Island or a Plague of Beasts, which drops October 5th.

You can download the show directly here on Libsyn.
