Geek Girl Riot just got SUPER-sized: We chat with Justin Min from The Umbrella Academy then get higher, further, faster with Captain Marvel.
Warning: If you haven’t seen either of these, go watch them now then come back…because this show is super-full of spoilers.
Taking on The Umbrella Academy with Justin Min
Well, we guess the secret’s out: Justin Min is Ben Hargreeves aka The Horror aka Number Six of The Umbrella Academy. Min is also an all-round creative and chill person to talk to. Sherin spoke to him about the growth of his character’s role in the Netflix adaptation, what his creative fuel is, and looking ahead to season 2.
Flying High with Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel is photon-blasting away the box office right now which makes our comic book hearts happy. The movie has also given us a lot to dig into. Sherin, Drew, and Soma break down the story, the characters—including the League of the Hottest Kree (it’s a thing)—and the movie’s highs and lows. Buckle up, our Rioters are about to take you on a journey through comic book history to deliver a kickass breakdown (and punch some Skrulls)…
