Welcome back to the AIPT Comics Podcast where we break down the news, sort out what is really going on in the industry, and analyze some great comics. With the pandemic continuing to limit new comic book releases we dive into Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen’s Nextwave talking about what works, what doesn’t, and where it goes from here.
This week we also feature an interview with Gene Luen Yang about Superman Smashes the Klan out in collected format May 12. We discuss the series, his run on Super-Man, his upcoming Marvel Comics series Shang-Chi, and more!
