SDCC ’20: Paperfilms’ Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner talk comics

The panel featuring Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner offered advice on how to break into comics.

World-renowned for their work on Harley Quinn, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Amanda Conner chatted with Londyn Jackson (historian, History of the Batman creator) in their Paperfilms panel today during Comic-Con@Home. The panel discussed a whole slew of things from COVID-19, to their success with Paperfilms.com and how the operation is run.

You can watch the full panel below which dances across a lot of topics from their time visiting the set of the recent Harley Quinn movie Birds of Prey to creating comics.

As the panel was winding down, Jackson asked the creators what advice they’d give comic writers and artists who want to break in. “It’ll take 5 or 6 years before anyone notices you,” Palmiotti said unless of course, you’re an amazing artist. Palmiotti continued, “It’s easy to be the top writer when writing Batman.” He then compared comics to music saying there are thousands of styles and “If you don’t fit into regular comics maybe you go to a book company and do graphic novels, or maybe you do illustrations.” Palmiotti went on, “You have to just keep doing it you will get discovered if you have a voice.”

Palmiotti and Conner are currently two issues into Harley Quinn & The Birds of Prey (read my review of issue #1), with the third issue set to release this September.
