Join the AIPT Comics Podcast in welcoming Nathan Simmons as our new regular co-host! This week Dave and Nathan are joined by special guest and comics writer Josh Williamson to discuss the next big direction for DC Comics with Infinite Frontier #0 out in March as well as his new series Robin. We also get into industry talk and so much more.
Before we dig into the news, Dave and Nathan play 3 lies and a truth and then break down the news. First up is Marvel Comics news as they revealed Heroes Reborn is a new series by Jason Aaron & Ed McGuinness and they also opened up fan-voting for their next X-Men team lineup. Marvel is also launching a line of graphic novels called Mighty Marvel Masterworks. Also, gear up for a new Marvel and Scholastic collaboration as they announced Spider-Ham: Great Power, No Responsibility, an original graphic novel by Steve Foxe and Shadia Amin.
In non-Marvel news, Brian K. Vaughan confirms Saga is in the works and will return soon, Brian Bendis is no longer exclusive At DC Comics, Image and Skybound are planning a comic-con cruise for next year, and finally, Dark Horse to publish entire YouNeek Studios line of graphic novels.
