Off Panel #99: Grilled Cheese Bread Bowl with Christopher Sebela

On this week’s episode of Off Panel, writer Christopher Sebela joins the show to talk his currently being Kickstarted comic, Short Order Crooks. He talks the Kickstarter experience, what Short Order Crooks is all about, the origin of the project, the value of Two Headed Press, how the Kickstarter developed, how the crew on the book came together, the difficulty of creating Kickstarter rewards, whether he can be the same on for-hire jobs as creator-owned, the amount of food based research he did, what he’d sell at his own food cart, secondary revenue streams for comic creators, his recent experience working in retail, and more.

You can find Sebela on Twitter, on his website, and in comics like Heartthrob, Injustice: Ground Zero, and the currently being Kickstarted title Short Order Crooks, which you should back ASAP.
