Off Panel #77: Hyphenate Life with Declan Shalvey

This week’s first Off Panel of 2017 welcomes artist/writer Declan Shalvey back to the show to talk his first major moves into the world of writerdom and his return to his creator-owned project with Warren Ellis and Jordie Bellaire, Injection. Shalvey talks how the Nick Fury, Jr. story he was the writer/artist for in Civil War II: Choosing Sides came together, the excellence of Marvel editor Wil Moss, the challenges of writing and drawing his own project, the benefits of being a hyphenate, making such a short story work, the difference between scripting for himself versus someone else, how the return to Injection is going, his studio’s previous intern getting his first gig, his perspective on Steve Dillon as an artist, and more.

You can find Declan on Twitter, Tumblr and in the upcoming return of Injection at Image Comics.
