This week on the AIPT Comics podcast, Pornsak Pichetshote joins the show to discuss his upcoming series The Good Asian which is out May 5th from Image Comics. We discuss the inspiration of this noir detective series set in 1930s San Francisco, the history that surrounds the time, the work Alexandre Tefenkgi and Lee Loughridge bring to the project, and more!

In new series news, Marvel Comics has revealed June’s Spider-Man story arc The Chameleon Conspiracy, announces Planet-Size X-Men #1, Heroes Return is set to wrap up Heroes Reborn, and a first of a kind Pride month special is coming in June too
