AIPT Comics Podcast Episode 87: Uncovering ‘Lonely Receiver’ with series writer Zac Thompson

Special guest Zac Thompson joins the comics podcast to discuss Lonely Receiver, Angel, Undone by Blood, and more.

This week, special guest Zac Thompson joins the show to talk about his new AfterShock horror series Lonely Reciever which is out in comic shops September 2nd. We talk about how the book came together and his process working with letterer Simon Bowland and artist Jen Hickman. We also talk about his upcoming 3-part Angel series at BOOM! Studios and the follow-up series Undone By Blood: The Other Side of Eden–and even discuss what Thompson and Lonnie Nadler have planned years ahead for the series.

Before the interview, we break down the weekly news. We begin by talking about the crushing blow that is Chadwick Boseman passing away. It was a shock to us and to the world. Our thoughts go out to his family and loved ones.
