Your weekly recap of the week is back with the AIPT Comics podcast and this week Steve Foxe joins the show! Foxe is writing two big series starting with X-Men ’92: XCII #1 out next week, followed by Archer & Armstrong Forever #1 launching May 4th. We discuss both series, which coincidentally involve immortal heroes! We also dig into his duties as an editor on other titles. For even MORE Steve Foxe, check X-Reads’ interview out earlier this week.
Before we get to the interview, we recap the biggest news of the week! We kick things off with the 2022 Hugo Awards finalists and then dig into a ton of new series announcements.
