The #1 comics podcast on AIPT we bring you the news, talk the best books of the week, look ahead to new comic book day, and interview guests to keep you connected with the comics industry.
This week special guest Matt Kindt joins us to discuss Folklords, which makes its BOOM! Studios debut in comic shops November 13, 2019! We talk shop on writing a fantasy series, questing, the deeper meaning of the series itself, and more! We also play Superfight where we pit Gollum vs. the Wicked Witch of the West to determine who would be the worst boss.
In the news, DC shutters Vertigo early, DC War Giant and Teen Titans Go postponed indefinitely, Folklords #1 gets 3rd printing, JJ Abrams’ Spider-Man significantly delayed, Undiscovered Country #1 is Image’s second-biggest selling launch in a decade and it’s getting a 2nd printing, Chew’s John Layman returns with ‘Butterfly Effect Noir’ series, we review the October sales report, and Todd McFarlane partners with CGC for mail-in signing of Spawn 300 for $89.
Before we get to Matt, we break down our favorite comics of the week which include:
- Swimming in Darkness (W/A: Lucas Harari, Translator David Homel)
- Addams Family: The Bodies #1 (W: Zoe Quinn, A: Philip Murphy)
We also pick our favorite comic book covers which are Morbius #1 by Kyle Hotz and War Children #1 (second printing) by Bill Sienkiewicz. Check those out below.
