AIPT Comics Podcast Episode 64: John Allison talks worldbuilding and Wicked Things, plus we recap the pulse of the comic industry

‘Giant Days’ creator John Allison talks about his new series, plus we recap the biggest news of the week.

This week, special guest John Allison joins us to talk about his new BOOM! Studios series Wicked Things. The new detective series spins a character from Allison’s universe. We also talk about the industry, the troubles of worldbuilding in a who-done-it, play Superfight (Sherlock Holmes vs. Charlotte), and check in on what Allison is reading and what he’s into that’s not comics-related.
