The Panelists is a podcast about comics, illustration and visual storytelling, hosted by comic artists Stephen Bobbett and Kyle Latino. Filled with humor, idiosyncrasy and just a hint of provocation, The Panelists is an alternative spin on comics podcasting, with in-depth dialogues, offbeat reviews and brain-tingling interviews with the luminary denizens of the illustration universe.
Stephen Bobbett is the creator of the dark-humored sci-fi webcomic The Big Crunch and the surreal graphic novella series Daydream. He is also a bar manager and relentlessly curious cocktailian. He enjoys hiking and harbors a quiet jealousy for people who study astrophysics. He lives in southern New Hampshire.
Kyle Latino has been drawing comics since 2009. His first self-published work was Gideon’s Trip, which embraced the then new digital format of the iPhone and iPod Touch with a unique scrolling format. He’s worked with BOOM! STUDIOS and IMAGE COMICS as a color assistant on many projects, such as Stan Lee’s Starborn and The Activity. Also, he illustrated an 8-page story for Four Star Studios for Double Horror Feature #2, written by Corinna Bechko. He lives with his wife in Louisville, KY.
