It’s another edition of the AIPT Comics podcast where we recap the biggest news of the week, review our favorite comics, look at the week ahead, and host special guests too. This week, The Axe #1 came out in Heavy Metal Magazine #315 and we talk all about it with its creators Joe Trohman (Fall Out Boy), Brian Posehn (Deadpool, The Sarah Silverman Project), and Scott Koblish (Deadpool)! We discuss their first taste of Heavy Metal Magazine, the nerdy, skatepunk, metalhead teenager characters, and the hardcover metal aspects.
Stay till the end as we also chat about The Secret History of the War on Weed which Posehn and Koblish collaborate on with Gerry Duggan, out April 20, 2022
Before the interview, we recap the biggest news of the week. It was a bit of a digital takeover this week as Zestworld announces $9.3 million growth capital while ComiXology announced new app fixes and upgrades. Marvel editors participated in #DisneyWalkout to support LGBTQIA+ voices. Marvel also launched Avengers Forever Infinity Comic #1 this week while announcing Thor #750 details.
