Welcome back to your weekly dose of comics news, reviews, and interview content! This week, special guest Ryan Parrott joins the show to discuss the revelations discovered in Mighty Morphin #10. We dig into how he’s built everything up to this, writing a classic villain, the future of Power Rangers, how great Dan Mora’s art is, and so much more! Plus, we play Superfight and pit Darth Vader versus Lord Zed!
Before the interview, we dig into the biggest news of the week. The biggest news of the week involves Substack and how creators are moving to the platform. James Tynion IV signaled he’s ending his superhero work starting November 2021, Jonathan Hickman outlined his Substack plans for Three Worlds Three Moons, and Chip Zdarsky revealed the freedoms of Substack and his future in comics.
In other news, Wizard World closes its convention business, selling all cons off to Fan Expo, Image revealed King Spawn #1 sells record-setting 497K in pre-orders, and DC Comics released their solicits. We go over those details, while also delving into Marvel Comics news of added Wasp and Black Bolt one-shots to Darkhold lineup and finally Tini Howard is no longer Marvel exclusive with DC work coming in November.
