Off Panel #87: Comic Timing with Daniel Kibblesmith

In this week’s episode of Off Panel, writer Daniel Kibblesmith joins the show to talk his new comic, Valiant High. Kibblesmith discusses his comic book origin story, whether he needed to dig into Valiant’s history for the project, finding the right roles for each character, whether you can go too far in lampooning characters, the differences between writing for TV versus for comics, whether writing comics is a breath of fresh air given his day job, the impact of this presidency on late night, his long term view on writing comics, and more.

You can find Daniel on his website, on Twitter and his work in Valiant High at Valiant Comics.
