The AIPT Comics podcast is back to recap the week and this week Dan Spinelli guest hosts! We host a special segment on Substack. We review our favorite Substack comics creators, what works, what doesn’t, and consider what the future may hold for the platform. We also check out the Substack app for iOS.
Before we get to Substack we recap the biggest news of the week. We start with Jim Rugg’s Maus homage variant being pulled. We discuss the ramifications of this choice as well as how something like this could happen.
In other comics news, we recap all of Marvel and DC Comics‘ Pride Month plans, discuss actor Paul Dano getting a writing gig at DC Comics to write a Riddler series, and discuss a number of new release news. New titles include Black Adam, Milestones In History, new Hellboy one-shot, and numerous titles at Image Comics too.
