This week on the AIPT Comics podcast, Declan Shalvey joins the show to discuss his series Time Before Time and the Kickstarter Process Edition. We dig into the unique time-travel story approach, making comics as serial stories, and other projects like Immortal Hulk: Flatline and the yet to be resolicited Punisher vs. Barracuda!
Before the interview, we recap the week in news. We open with the incredibly sad news of John Paul Leon’s passing. It was a crushing blow to the comics industry.
In other news, we discuss Jeff Smith’s new graphic novel Tuki which launched on Kickstarter–check back next week as we interview Smith on the podcast– as well as discuss the blockbuster news the Dark Horse series Lady Killer is headed to Hollywood starring Blake Lively. Skybound/Image Pride Month charity variants are also on the way to benefit the Transgender Law Center.
