A planet-killing asteroid heading straight for Earth may seem like The End of Life As We Know It, but it’s just the starting point for Lion Forge’s Catalyst Prime line of superhero titles. Senior editor Joseph Phillip Illidge makes a quick return to the underground recording studio to lay out just what he and his hand-picked team of creators (including Alex Di Campi, David F. Walker, Amy Chu, Joe Casey, and more) have up their sleeves to save us from a fate even worse than armageddon: boring comics. He talks about the Catalyst Prime 2017 rollout, what his thoughts and goals are for the line in general, and how having the opportunity to tell these kinds of stories for today’s readers is a full-circle milestone in his comics career.[audio:http://traffic.libsyn.com/robotsfromtomorrow/rft_387_mixdown.mp3](direct download)
