This week on the AIPT Comics podcast, Nathan and Dave get silly as we reflect on the much anticipated Justice League Snyder Cut, make our picks of the week, and discuss the fact that this episode may be a Knightmare reality!
Before we dig into that, we discuss the biggest news of the week. Kicking things off, we discuss the newly released full line-up of Free Comic Book Day 2021 titles announced coming in August.
