Join the weekly AIPT Comics podcast for a recap of the week in comics, reviews, and interviews too! This week, Ben Percy joins the show to discuss Wereworld, a new novella out September 14th with illustrations by Francesco Francavilla. Call it an early preview of the Halloween season, we discuss what makes horror great, if Percy has any ideas for other monsters, and even touch on Wolverine.
Before the interview, we recap the biggest news of the week. Kicking things off, we discuss the news that Joe Bennett is off Timeless Timeless and will not be working with Marvel in the future. Marvel also revealed a ton of news about upcoming December books like Devil’s Reign, King Conan, Death of Doctor Strange, Elektra: Black, White & Blood, and Avengers Forever.
In industry news, the Marvel Unlimited app gets a massive update, Jeff Lemire gave details on three new series alongside Substack project Fishflies, DC Comics outlined Batman Day details with FaZe Clan, HBO Max, & WEBTOON collaborations, and Neotext revealed Ben Percy and Francesco Francavilla’s novella Wereworld.
