- #088: Whachudoin’? with LIGHTS, Black Panther Trailer, Rachel Stuhler, & Gail Simone vs. The Mummy

By | June 14, 2017 at 2:30 PM

When geekdom and music collide, we here at idobi’s Geek Girl Riot get doubly excited. That’s why we’re so thrilled to bring you today’s Whachudoin’? chat with LIGHTS. She’s putting out a new album + comic called Skin & Earth, and spoiler alert: you’re gonna love ’em. Sherin and Alex call LIGHTS up to find out some more details and Easter eggs about the comic world of Madison Oasis she’s created. They also chat Neil Gaiman, other artists and comics they’re loving, and ill-fated frogs. Yup, frogs. You can get the comic book from Dynamite in July, and look out for the record this fall!

Next up Sherin and Jamal lose their minds over the Black Panther trailerand who can blame them? Have you seen it? HAVE YOU? Then we have another instalment from our friends at Serial Box’s Geek Actuallythis time Rachel Stuhler tells us a bit about being a geeky mom, and why this is such an exciting time for women in geekery. And while we’re on the subject, one of our favorite geeky women, Gail Simone, had some excitement of her own this week…on Twitter. Sherin and Jamal return to discuss the epic showdown of Gail Simone vs. The Mummy. Trust us, it’s more entertaining than all 110 minutes of the new reboot.
