AIPT Comics Podcast Episode 129: Best comics of the year…so far; plus Frank Gogol!

And we’re back for another weekly edition of the AIPT Comics podcast! This week, special guest Frank Gogol joins the show to talk about his new one-shot, PowerRangers Unlimited Edge Of Darkness #1. The new BOOM! Studios one-shot reveals much about the Phantom Ranger, but also another key Power Rangers character! Tune in to find out more.

Before the interview, Dave and Nathan recap the week in news and the best comics of the week. We also have multiple segments including the Best Comics of the Year…so far!

We start by talking about the comics creators who condemned the news of Warren Ellis’s return to comics and how Image Comics gave a statement. We also discuss the September 2021 Marvel solicitations and the news of Marvel’s plans for Amazing Spider-Man.

We also recap a bunch of new Dark Horse Comics series announcements, discuss Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman’s new comics imprint Kids Love Chains Press, The Department of Truth #1 selling out, and Marvel announcing a new NFT collecting option via Veve Digital Collectibles App.
