Off Panel #79: Comics Law with Caitlin DiMotta

Comics lawyer Caitlin DiMotta joins Off Panel this week to talk about her role in helping some of the biggest names in comics do what they do. DiMotta shares her path to becoming a lawyer, how her background in ballet impacted her, how she first got involved with the comic industry, the importance of her role, creative transparency in deals between creators and publishers, the power of saying “no” in negotiations, whether comic creators should talk to a lawyer when making a deal, the next big frontier of comics, and more.
