Welcome to another week of the AIPT Comics podcast, with special guest host Colin Moon! We chat about the biggest news of the week, recap our favorite comics, and creator Kyle Starks joins us too. We discuss Starks’ new book I Hate This Place from Skybound/Image on May 18th. We talk about crafting horror and his plans for the series to exhibit all horror under the sun–or is it the blood moon?
In comics news, we express our deep sorrow over the passing of comics legend George Pérez. Rest in peace, George.
In other comics news, Substack launched a “substack Free Comic Book Day,” Marvel’s got something AMAZING coming (full details here), the Edge of Spider-Verse limited series was announced set to intro new Spidey characters and more, IDW adds three in editorial including Jamie S. Rich, and Die: The RPG launches and meets goals within 16 hours! Oh, and how could we forget the people that have a lot of opinions on the new Standard Comic Script (SCS) template!? All that and more in the news.
