Welcome to the weekly comic book podcast at AIPT. Your hosts David Brooke and Forrest Hollingsworth do their best to recap all the news, best comics, interview guests and look ahead to new releases out next Wednesday. It’s our way of keeping you up to date and connected! This week we have special guest Jeremy Haun on the show to talk about his new BOOM! Studios series The Red Mother. We also play Super Fight and check in on his off-topic top shelf!
