A weekly comics podcast hosted by some of the most entertaining ladies in the business.
Bam! Pow! Interrupting - Avengers: Endgame
Girls Interrupting and Bam! Pow! TV! teamed up this week to talk about Avengers: Endgame, the latest film from the MCU and the capper of a 22 movie event. Listen in as we discuss this 3 hour behemoth in detail - this is not a spoiler free podcast ;)
Previously On: MOTOR CRUSH, Vol 1
Get your engines warmed up kiddos, we're back to the races with MOTOR CRUSH! Written by Brenden Fletcher and illustrated by Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr, we're back to finish up Volume One this week.
Dominic Swift loves to race, and hopes that with enough cash she can save her father's shop, protect her ex-girlfriend, and keep herself alive. But with the appearance of a mysterious figure who seems to know more about Dom's past than she does, things get much murkier and far more dangerous.
If you've only read #1, then brace yourself for more racing, more CatBall, and more Lola than ever before!
Let’s Get in the Coffin and Save Ourselves
We're diving back into the gorgeous and terrifying world of MONSTRESS, brought to us by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda. This book is a densely-packed dive into a society built on magic, slavery, and brutal control.
It should go without saying that the art is incredible, from its style to its content, and we are all amazed by how easily MONSTRESS swept us into its grasp.
Maika continues her relentless quest to learn more about her past, leaving both old friends and new enemies in her wake. She struggles to understand her own power, as it often (literally) bursts from her without warning.
Now that we've finished the first volume, we can't wait to start the next one! Join us as we discuss the mystery of cats, the puzzle of non-sexualized nudity, and the rarity of a story that's 90% women.
We've got our grimoires out and we're ready to learn! This week we're discussing WITCH BOY, a young adult graphic novel by Molly Knox Ostertag.
Teenaged Aster is a boy growing up in a family of witches and shapeshifters whose strictly held gender roles would forever deny him the chance to study the art of witchcraft.
But with the help of his new mortal friend Charlie, Aster looks for a way to follow his heart (and his growing talent) without losing his family along the way.
We dive deep on this one, discussing our feelings about gender, equality, and how today's political climate affects so many kids growing up in the US right now. Jump in with us, but don't break your leg! We haven't learned that spell yet.
Ain't no leashes holdin' us down - this week we're slashing through issues #1-4 of Man-Eaters by Chelsea Cain and Kate Niemczyk.
We learn quickly that in a world where teenage girls are the scariest creatures imaginable, the world still finds a way to humiliate and disenfranchise them. Luckily, teenage girls are even more resilient and creative than we give them credit for. Watch out for Maude - you never know what a girl might be capable of while she's on her period.
This book is basically the lovechild of BITCH PLANET and ANIMOSITY, and we are here for it! Join us as we discuss tampons, Corgis, and Dad advice, all while ordering a flat of bottled water for the studio.
Spider-Gwen: Ghost-Spider 1-4
While The Girls don't normally enjoy cross-over events, but LOVE Spider-Gwen, we made an exception and dove into Seanan McGuire & Rosie Kämpe's SPIDER-GWEN: GHOST-SPIDER # 1-4, a tie-in story within the Spider-Geddon run.
Our friendly neighborhood Spider-Gwen is shot through to another dimension (normal) and finds MJ and Peter working to save an their local Gwen Stacey from, well, herself (not so normal). It's a tale of too many Gwens as Spider-Gwen joins Peter & MJ to rescue this version of herself in order to get back home and save her own Spider-Family.
Super Awesome Podcast
This is far and away my favorite comics podcast. These women are hilarious, smart, and bring a feminist sensibility to their reviews and discussions that is sorely lacking in most other comics podcast. I love the games. I regularly find myself yelling out answers or yelling in agreement as they discuss the comics. Great show. You should listen.
To these glorious women-5 stars
I'm so glad I stumbled upon this glorious podcast! These women definitely get me. I was looking for a podcast that's all about women and comics and I'm learning things I wouldn't have, like writers, artists and even recommendations for new comics to read. I would say I was a casual comic reader before, sticking to what I knew and not really branching out, but these women have made me want to read all these other comics, especially women-centric (which is what I always look for in comics) hats off to these amazing women, can't wait to hear more from you ladies!
It’s so nice hearing people talk about comics so passionately (and loudly!). These girls are a delight!
