Off Panel #60: Comics Journalism? with Chris Arrant

Newsarama Editor Chris Arrant joins the show this week to talk writing about comics. Arrant discusses his comics journalism origin story, whether “comics journalism” is a proper term, the difference between his approach and that of his peers, how he made writing about comics his career, what makes for a good interview, how the landscape of writing about comics has changed over the years, recent redesigns and changes at comic sites, adapting to the changing nature of the internet, and more. As a special change of space, the five questions at the end? They’re of Chris interviewing David, as opposed to the usual.

You can find Chris on Twitter, on the web, and his work at Newsarama.
