Hunter Gorinson, President and Publisher at Oni Press joins the podcast at Baltimore Comic Con to talk about big changes at the publisher. After taking over at Oni last year, Gorinson now has big plans to get the company back to basics — and prepped for the future, with a slate of new titles. And while Gorinson preps the New Class for Oni Press, he’s still keeping an eye on the past. Specifically, we discuss the continuing bans on Maia Kobabe’s Gender Queer… And what’s coming up for the 20th anniversary of Scott Pilgrim?
