Talksplode #72 – Aubrey Sitterson  

Thanks to iFanboy patrons, it's Talksplode time. Aubrey Sitterson writes the ongoing GI Joe series for IDW Publishing, and yes, there is a Transformer, a Decepticon even, on the team. But you might also know him as the host of Straight Shoot, "the World's Smartest Rasslin' Talk Show", and as a former editor comics, both at Marvel, and for a pre-Skybound Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead. We chat about Aubrey's career in comics, the original "plan", and where things are now. If you've ever listened to Aubrey before, you know he's got a lot to say, and with his experience in comics, podcasts, and wrestling, it's worth listening to. You can find out more about Aubrey Sitterson at aubreysitterson.com. Also make sure to check out Skald, his sword and sorcery ongoing audiobook while you're there.
