In this week's episode of Off Panel, writer Mark Waid joins the podcast for a career-spanning chat examining his writing. Waid discusses how his early jobs editing comics and writing about them affected his storytelling approach, how he became a writer, his love of writing himself into a corner, where his love of problem solving comes from, how The History of the Marvel Universe fits in there, Javier Rodriguez's greatness, why he loved writing Impulse so much, the intersection of writing young characters + knowing comic history, what continuity means to him, comics in mourning, differentiating H1 from other superhero universe, his love of not being in a box, why Ignited appealed to him as a storyteller, what the most interesting thing happening in comics today is to him, and more.
