This week on the AIPT Comics podcast, Jeff Parker joins the show to discuss his upcoming series Ninjak at valiant comics with Javier Pulido. Out on July 14th, we discuss his approach to the super-spy ninja, how the pandemic affected the series, and more! We also talk about his series Future Quest, Batman 66, and his infamous beer Twitter thread.
