Off Panel ECCC Special #1: Support Your Local Sheriff with Mitch Gerads

On the first special podcast recorded at Emerald City ComiCon this year, we have a quick chat with artist Mitch Gerads. We talk about how he first got into comics, how his design background impacts his art, why The Sheriff of Babylon is such an important project to him, how working with writer Tom King is such a great fit, how coloring himself changes his work, and much more. It’s a mini-episode because of the time restrictions of con living, but it’s still a great chat with one of comics’ best artists about one of the best titles around today.

You can find Mitch on Twitter and his work in The Sheriff of Babylon at Vertigo Comics every month.
