This week AIPT Comics is coming at you with a double dose. On Friday we posted an exclusive interview with Olympia writer Chris Pires about the first issue and series. It’s an hour of insight!
In our regularly scheduled show, we sat down with Tim Seeley and Dan Fraga to talk He-Man and the Masters of the Multiverse #1 which is out this week. We learn directly from the creators what the book is about, how Seeley is possibly the biggest He-Man fan on the Earth, play a game, and talk about so much more!
