This week we’re talking about the first two issues of the fantastic new HULK by Mariko Tamaki and Nico Leon. It features Jennifer Walters, previously known as She-Hulk, taking up the Incredible mantle in the wake of her cousin’s death. Her struggle to cope with work, anxiety, and the beast inside of her inspires us to discuss how we each fight against being judged for our appearance and the ways in which we present ourselves as women living in this world.
We also wanted to talk to you about something extremely important to us. Anyone who listens to this podcast knows we are adamant supporters of justice, truth, and equality. The last few months of political gamesmanship and immoral, illegal, and prejudiced behavior by Trump and his administration have saddened and outraged us. What HASN’T been disappointing is the resistance movement this has inspired. We are so proud of our fellow Americans for standing up for everything that truly makes this country great, that we are asking for your help in supporting two amazing organizations: Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. We are part of a team holding a fundraiser for these two groups and we are giving you the opportunity to sponsor segments of upcoming episodes in the following ways:
$5 – Ask us a question or solicit our opinion on any subject
$20 – Pick a comic or topic that will be the focus of a mini-episode
$35 – We will play a game of your creation in a future round of GameBangers!
$50 – Co-host an episode with us on the comic of your choosing!
