This week on the Comics podcast, Nathan and Dave discuss all the new August 2021 release news, recap their favorite comics, and introduce a new segment! We also host Suicide Squad writer Robbie Thompson and Teen Titans Academy writer Tim Sheridan to discuss the ongoing crossover event across their two books. We discuss their approach to the story and how it got off the ground, how Peacemaker and Amanda Waller deserve a buddy cop story, and more!
Before the interview, we dig into the biggest news of the week! We discuss industry news like AT&T and Discovery merging, the April sales numbers, and Diamond Comics Distributors creating Pullbox, the online comic pull list service.
We also discuss new reveals like Marvel and SiriusXM’s scripted podcast Wastelanders: Old Man Star-Lord, The Heroes Union #1 coming August 2021 from Roger Stern, Ron Frenz, and Sal Buscema, and Image Comics and Marvel Comics solicitations! Plus new series from IDW and Vault too!
