  • Ok, so apparently Marvel is finally making good on their promises of a Hulk show, with the animated Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. getting off the ground.

That’s right: Eliza Dushku is Jennifer Walters is Shulkie, Bruce Banner’s cousin given gamma ray powers via medically necessary blood transfusion, but only after she’d graduated valedictorian of her law school class.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
